New Delhi, Nov 28:  While the Opposition flip-flops on its call for a nationwide strike, the public in general gives thumbs down to Bharat Bandh on Monday.

Few days ago, the opposition parties announced to stage Jan Aakrosh Diwas on November 28 to protest over the demonetisation issue.


The public in general voiced their opposition to the bandh call as it adversely impacts the country's economy.

In most parts of the country, offices, schools and colleges functioned normally.

On social media, angry people voiced their opinions as why bandhs were bad for the country.

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

However, later several parties--including the Congress and the TMC--decided to stay away from observing a bandh.

Except for the Left-ruling states like Kerala and Tripura, there was no sign of a shutdown in any part of the country.
