As opposition continued its war against the government move to demonetise Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes by declaring a nation-wide bandh, support from Congress-ruled states and in West Bengal and Kerala, the effect is likely to be maximum.
In Kerala, the ruling left front supported the move and all shutters will be down with the exception of marriages and essential supplies, banks and hospitals.
While the rest of India will not witness much response to the bandh, Karnataka government has declared its support which may result in closure of schools and colleges. Bangalore University has postponed its exams to be held on Monday.
City buses, BMTC and KSRTC will not ply their buses in view of the bandh, which may affect transportation in the city badly. However, no announcement has been made on the closure of schools and colleges tomorrow but deputy commissioners have been asked to take a call on it depending upon the situation.
This will be a major and perhaps the last bandh in Bangalore that may witness disruption of services and closure of shops affecting the ordinary life of citizens. The opposition has been demanding Prime Minister Narendra Mode to address parliament on his version of demonetisation, which he is not willing to do though he explained on several other platforms and even invited public opinion via smartphones.
