No call for bandh by Shiv Sena: Raut

Mumbai, Nov 18 , 2012 (PTI)

Refuting reports in a section of the media, Shiv Sena tonight said it has not called for a bandh in Mumbai tomorrow.

The clarification was made by Sena spokesman Sanjay Raut in the wake of reports that shops, commercial establishments and educational institutions would remain closed on Monday to mourn the death of Bal Thackeray.

Incidentally, schools and colleges will be re-opening tomorrow after Diwali vacation.
Though Shiv Sena has not called for bandh, Federation of Associations of Maharashtra (FAM) has asked its constituents and the trading community to observe bandh in the state tomorrow as a mark of respect to the Sena patriarch who passed away yesterday.

In a statement, FAM has appealed to its constituents to observe 'Shradhanjali Day' on Monday.

Various trade organisations dealing in grains, sugar, dry fruits, metal, iron and steel and chemicals are affiliated to FAM.
