However, they strongly disapprove the nationwide strike (Bharat Bandh) called by the opposition parties against the demonetisation drive by the Narendra Modi government on November 28.

The general sentiment among the people is that bandhs are bad for the country's economy.

Moreover, at a time when the nation is fighting cash crunch due to the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes by the Modi government on November 8, the bandh will add to the woes of the people.

"I strongly oppose the bandh. It is totally uncalled for. The opposition parties are doing further harm to the nation. We are already dealing with an unprecedented cash crunch due to the sudden and hasty demonetisation decision. This bandh will further hit the economy," said a senior retired bureaucrat based in Bengaluru, on condition of anonymity.

Echoing the retired bureaucrat's views, Taniya Roy, a women entrepreneur from Bengaluru, said both the Modi government and the opposition parties were playing politics over demonetisation.

"Nobody is worried about the common people," she added.

Since the time demonetisation has been announced, a united opposition has been constantly attacking the Centre over poor implementation of demonetisation.

According to reports, bandh is likely to be fully observed in states like Karnataka, Kerala and West Bengal, where opposition parties are heading these states.
