Almost all schools and colleges have declared a holiday on Friday in view of the bandh in Bangalore. The city life in Bangalore is likely to be affected with the strike call as all the state-run buses will be off the roads, while many autos affiliated to CITU will be keeping off the roads in tow. However, they will resume after 6 PM in the evening, said CITU activists.
The bandh on Friday, september 2, 2016 has been called by All India Trade Unions Congress (AITUC) and Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) and H V Anantha Subbarao, general secretary of KSRTC Staff and Workers Federation, said the four state-run transport corporations will be participating in the strike. “With this, 23,000 buses of the four corporations will remain off the road from 6 am to 6 pm on Friday. The buses will resume operation in the evening,” he told media.
In a late development, schools and colleges have declared a holiday tomorrow (Friday, Sept.2, 2016) in view of no transportation facility in Bangalore, which is far from serving by Namma Metro.
