YSRCP and left parties called for Kadapa bandh demanding the steel plant. Since 4 am the leaders and cadre are protesting opposite bus stand. Most of the busses are confined to bus stand only. As the bus services are cancelled passengers from other districts were stranded.
The bandh is total and peaceful. Most of the business establishments downed their shutters. Schools were closed in support of the bandh. Several government offices were also closed. Even private vehicles remained indoors.
Left leaders K.Ramakrishna and BV Raghavulu were leading the protests. The bandh is successful in other constituencies such as Rajampet, Mydukur, Puluvendala, Jammalamadugu, Rayachoti, and Proddatur.
