‘Maharastra Bandh’ is a State-Sponsored Terrorism; Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Alleges

The nation was enraged after eight farmers were killed when they were driven over by an SUV in Lakhimpur Kheri. Both ordinary citizens and politicians demanded that the perpetrators be arrested right away. Many politicians objected in a variety of ways, requesting that the farmers be compensated.

In response, the Maharastra government issued a state-wide bandh on October 11 in protest. Meanwhile, Devendra Fadnavis, the former Maharashtra chief minister and a Bharatiya Janata Party leader, has criticised the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) for calling a bandh to protest the murders of four farmers in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri.

Fadnavis, who described the bandh as a kind of state-sponsored terrorism, asked that farmers harmed by Maharashtra’s floods be compensated. Meanwhile, transit services and shops in Mumbai and Thane remain closed. Workers from the NCP and Shiv Sena marched in Thane, while auto-rickshaw drivers were pushed off the roads. The bandh was deemed successful by alliance partners Shiv Sena, Congress, and NCP.
