Rail and road traffic was hit across Bihar on Monday due to a nationwide shutdown called by the Congress against the hike in fuel prices.

The shutdown is being supported by the opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Left Parties and Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM).

Hundreds of Congress and other opposition parties leaders and workers took to the streets since early Monday in different parts of Bihar.

Over a dozen long route trains were halted at Patna, Gaya, Bhojpur, Jehanabad, Bhagalpur, and Muzaffarpur railway stations.

At several places, the activists were seen burning tires on roads to protest.

They also raised slogans against the Central government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Additional security has been deployed all across the state to maintain law and order.

However, no untoward incident was reported anywhere.
