Bhopal, Aug 13(UNI) Normal life was affected across Madhya Pradesh as vehicular traffic remained crippled in view of the two hour 'Chakka jam'' from 0900 hours today called by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on the Amarnath land allotment issue.

In the state capital, office-goers had a tough time as workers of VHP and other Hindu outfits staged 'Chakkajam' at 11 places affecting movement of all four wheelers and two-wheelers. Long queues of vehicles were seen at many places.

Satellite town of Kolar Road, having about three lakh population, remained cut off from the state capital as to and fro movement of traffic on Kolar river bridge was stopped due to the road blockade agitation.

Buses from outstations could not enter the state capital as almost all entry points were also scenes of the ''Chakkajam''.

Reports reaching here said the VHP-sponsored agitation to press for allotment of land for Shrine Board and recall of Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra was successful in Indore, Gwalior, Ujjain, Jabalpur and other towns. No untoward incident had been reported from any part of the state.

A report from Badwani said traffic on Agra-Mumbai national highway remained paralysed and long queues of vehicles were seen at many places.
