In response to nation wide call for Bandh by an amalgam of 13 parties against rise in inflation and related issues, Sirsa remained completely BANDH from Dusk to Dawn. The Bandh this time was however peaceful unlike the BANDH of 3rd April. The success of today’s BANDH mainly goes to INLD joining the band wagon of 13 parties. In Sirsa which is home time of Ex CM Ch OP Chautala, INLD is the only effective opposition party amongst the 13, however CPI, CPM, All India Kisan Sabha, DYFI and AISF also did there bit and appealed to shop keepers to make the BANDH a success. INLD activists played in a more organized way and made troops of vehicles bound workers and foot-workers making rounds of all the markets and appealing for BANDH. This time there was no attempt from the party workers of ruling party to thaw the BANDH so the BANDH was complete as well as peaceful.
On 26th April
Abhay Singh Chautala INLD MLA for Ellenabad Vidhan Sabha Constituency, while addressing a PC at his Dabwali road Sirsa residence, claimed that not even a single shop shall open during tomorrow's BANDH as people are fed up the Ruling party and with the rising inflation. He said that people are ready for a voluntary BANDH tomorrow in Sirsa and its towns like Ellenabad, Rania, Dabwali Kalanwali etc.
Hoshiari Lal Sharma Distt. President Congress Committee, has appealed to shopkeepers that they should keep their shops open tomorrow, claiming that the Bandh is not in the national interest.
