PUNE: Shops and business establishments pulled down their shutters on Monday in response to an indefinite bandh which began on Monday after a strike called by Federation of Trade Associations of Pune (apex body of 80 trade unions) against the decision to implement Local Body Tax (LBT).

According to a statement issued by the federation, various trade bodies including gold and silver merchants’ association, paper and cloth merchants’ association and general merchants took part in Monday’s bandh and will extend their support for the LBT boycott.

With shops selling essential commodities participating in the bandh, normal life was crippled all over the city. Residents across various areas complained of inadequate supply of milk, medicines and other essential commodities. Serpentine queues were found around most petrol pumps but none of them obliged their clients.

The usually busy commercial areas such as Laxmi Road, Ravivar Peth, Nana Peth along with Karve Road, Kothrud, Baner and Pashan too were affected by the bandh, said the statement. A procession comprising almost 10,000 traders who had gathered at Sarasbaug, performed a maha aarti of Lord Ganesh.

“There was a 100 % impact of the bandh and we are expecting a huge gathering at Tilak Statue on Tuesday after which we will announce our further strategy,’’ said Popatal Lal Oswal of Federation of Trade Associations of Pune.

According to Federation of Trade Associations of Pune, more than 25,000 traders on Tuesday are expected to take out a procession from Tilak Statue at Mandai and march till Pune Municipal Corporation head office. After the march, traders have decided to hand over a memorandum to the civic chief. The bandh, according to Federation of Trade Associations of Pune, will continue till the government revokes LBT.

The bandh received an overwhelming response in Pimpri Chinchwad. Various trade associations have decided to go on an indefinite bandh from Tuesday. Businessmen took out a morcha on two wheelers in the morning. Around 100 traders from Khadki Cantonment area met Chief Executive Officer SVR Chandrasekhar and submitted a memorandum asking him to rethink on LBT.
