Nationwide trade union strike evokes mixed response in Northeast

Thursday, 26 Nov, 6.01 pm

The 24-hour nationwide trade union strike called on Thursday by ten central trade unions evoked a mixed response in the Northeast.

Banking services across the northeastern region were hit as the bank employees joined the countrywide strike.

According to officials, train and flight services in most northeastern states remained unaffected by the shutdown.

In BJP-ruled Assam, markets, shops and business establishments were open in many places and closed in some parts of the state especially in southern Assam.

There were few vehicles on the roads. But many government offices functioned almost normally and schools and other educational institutions also remained open, though with less attendance.
