In Telangana, the markets are completely closed in the morning. But after 12 Noon slowly shops got opened. At 3 PM the roads are normal. I went around the roads at 2 PM in my car and observed that all shops are slowly getting opened at that time.
The organisers of the agitation say that the bundh is successful in 25 states. But the government says it is not a success. However, as a common man, I say there is no benefit for anybody because of this bundh. Many people, especially daily wage earners lost a day's earnings and nobody will compensate that. With this 5 hours showdown, I don't think, the government will change its stand or the position of the agitators has become strong. If the agitation is planned without affecting the common man, I think they will get the support of many people.
