Bharat Bandh: Lukewarm response in West Bengal
In Kolkata, most of the shops and markets remained open while the city's metro service functioned normally.
However, the number of commuters were significantly less in the early hours on Monday compared to other working days.
A large number of public and private buses were seen plying in the city's important points including Shyambazar five-point, Esplanade crossing, Jadavpur and Ruby crossing.
The train service in Sealdah and Howrah section under the Eastern Railway was temporarily disrupted as the strike supporters blocked rail movements in Jadavpur and Sreerampur stations.
However, they were removed by the police within half an hour.
No untoward incidents of violence or clashes were reported.
