Maharashtra Bandh Over Lakhimpur Violence Live Updates: While essential services such as medical stores, milk supply, hospitals etc have been kept out of the Maharashtra Bandh, other markets would be closed.

Maharashtra Bandh: Normal life remains affected in Mumbai and other districts of Maharashtra as shops remain closed and buses remain off the roads in view of the state-wide bandh called by the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi government. As buses of the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST- the transport undertaking of the city civic body) and many of the traditional ‘black-yellow cabs’ remained off roads, there were huge crowds on suburban railway stations to commute by local trains, which were running as per schedule. In the morning, shops and other commercial establishments, barring those engaged in selling essential items, remained closed in Mumbai.

While the BEST bus services were affected in the wake of the bandh, the local trains, considered as the lifeline of Mumbai, were operating normally, but running packed as road commuters shifted to suburban rail services. “Our services are running as per schedule,” Shivaji Sutar, chief public relations officer of the Central Railway, told PTI. Most of the black-yellow cabs and auto-rickshaws were off roads in the metropolis, as per transport union leaders.
