That if we have to go through it then certainly would have an impact on us. But as I am in such a location that these are just evident through media or the news channels.
For an instance that I need the urgent medication & at the same time then these will strike to a big deal. The author has pointed out the incidence of Kerala itself blaming the BJP supporters but this is the area wherein the BJP still a weak party. But it's a politics & anything is possible.
In whatever this shouldn't be the case.
The private organisations will never give a holiday for bundh so the employee has to reach somehow to the office otherwise he will lose one leave or one day wage. Their troubles can't be described.
So these bandhs and hartals are very unwanted for the public but were encouraged by the politicians.
The success of the bandh is now measured by how much discomfort the people had to face. In Karnataka, when there is a bandh, life goes largely without many issues. In some places there would be violence but hospitals would be spared.
The next day, we would hear in the papers or the same evening in the TV channels we would hear reports of how people are stranded in bus stops, trains stations and have to pay huge amounts of money to autos and cabs after 6PM.
If one calculates the loss of earnings on that day in the city and state, the figure would be staggering. What's even more a matter of concern is on bandhs the schools will not close always, parents have to keep their fingers crossed that the school bus is not caught in the middle of any stray violence.
So, yes, bandhs and hartals affects daily routines in our part of the city but not to the extent we see in the peripheral and the rural districts. The worst bandhs were when we have the Cauvery water issues.
