Kolkata, Nov 28: There were no takers for the bandh call given by the Left parties in West Bengal. While the Left had called for a complete shut down in West Bengal, the ruling Trinamool Congress had opposed the same and decided only to protest.

Government buses and other private vehicles were seen plying on the road.

"So far there has been no major incident, except a few small ones in the districts," a senior police official said.

Although, the TMC opposed the Bandh, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said that they would take out a protest march (against demonetisation) on Monday.

The TMC said it was against putting people to more hardship when they are "already facing a lot of problems owing to the scarcity of cash".

Instead, the TMC will take out a rally from College Square to Esplanade today to protest against demonetisation, TMC general secretary Subrata Bakshi had said.

Initially, the opposition parties gave an impression that the day will be marked by nation-wide strike against Narendra Modi government's decision to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes on November 8.
