Chennai, Jun 6 (UNI) Normal life is likely to be disrupted in some parts of Tamil Nadu tomorrow in view of the state-wide bandh called by the Left parties to protest the hike in prices of petrol, diesel and cooking gas.

Public transport is likely to be hit in some parts of the state as the Communist Party of India (Marxist), CPI and All India Forward Bloc, which have called for the bandh, decided to resort to rail and 'road roko' to register their protest.

As employees, attached to the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) have decided to strike work, a majority of autorickshaws and sizeable number of state transport corporation buses are expected to be off the road.

CPI(M) state unit secretary N Varadarajan said a majority of autorickshaws and buses services would not play as the employees have pledged their support to the bandh.

The Tamil Nadu Authorickshaw Drivers Association, affiliated to the CITU, has announced that they would strike work from dawn-to-dusk tomorrow.

However, the state government announced that normal bus service would be maintained. As only those who were members of the CITU were expected to strike work, there would be no problem in running normal bus service, official sources said.
