VIJAYAWADA: The Bharat Bandh call given by farmers' association protesting the farm bills brought by the Centre evoked partial response in Andhra Pradesh on Tuesday with little impact on normal life.

With the State government announcing that RTC bus services will not run till 1 pm in solidarity with the Bharat Bandh, commuters got stranded at bus stations at some parts of the State. Educational institutions, which were functioning partially in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, were closed down following instructions of the State government.

Left party activists staged protests in front of bus depots and formed human chains at important junctions at several places in the State including Vijayawada, Tirupati, Visakhapatnam and other places but the impact was less with commercial establishments and private offices functioning normally.

In Vijayawada, Left party activists took out a rally from Lenin Centre to Besant Road closing down commercial establishments which were kept open. Apart from this, there was no incidence of forcible shut down of commercial establishments or stalling traffic in the State.
