Nationwide Maoists' shutdown throws life out of gear, irks locals
Ranchi, May 16 (ANI): The 24-hour shutdown by Maoists on Wednesday against the Central para-military maneuver, Operation Green Hunt, paralyzed normal life and disrupted transport services in the region.
The regional manager of Bihar state road transport authority, Ashok Kumar Singh said the nationwide shutdown is affecting locals and daily wage labourers.
"The Maoist called for a shutdown against the 'Green Hunt'. We are facing lot of problems due to this. Our income is getting affected because of the shutdown," Singh said.
Commuters faced the brunt of the shutdown in Ranchi as the public transport was put to halt.
Irked bus drivers complained that because of shutdown, they were not able to earn money and it is difficult for them to run their families.
"It is getting difficult for us to earn a living and these shutdowns should not be called frequently," said Suraj, a bus driver.
Normal life also came to a standstill in Jhargram region West Bengal.
"Shutdowns have always been a part of Jangalmahal but it has never benefited the people. The means of transportation has been badly affected. In Jhargham, there are shutdowns now and then but these are useless. We totally resent the shutdown," said Manoj Das, a local. (ANI)
