While the common man is struggling to get his hard earned money from the ATMs and Banks, yet supporting demonetisation, which they believe is good for the country but will strangle black money hoarders and terror funding, for narrow political gains the opposition parties has declared Bharath Bandh on 28 November to cause further inconvenience for teh people of this country.

A meeting was held at the CPI-M headquarters, Muzaffar Bhavan and the parties which have attended the meeting include, the Communist Party of India-Marxist, Communist Party of India, All India Forward Bloc, Revolutionary Socialist Party, Janata Dal-United, Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Nationalist Congress Party.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee refrained from supporting the strike. “In Delhi at the meeting of Opposition parties, a Bandh was never discussed or agreed to. We do not support any Bandh called,” she wrote on Twitter.

“People are suffering so I appeal to all to help citizens and stand by them at this hour of crisis,” she added.

Trinamool's Partha Chatterjee said, "Our protest rally may add to the unease of motorists for two hours. But the Left plans to bring life to a halt for 12 hours. I don't think it will find public support."

West Bengal state BJP president Dilip Ghosh said, "People understand why the Left has given the bandh call. It's a mock fight between Trinamool and CPM for their survival."
