Bandh Against Lakhimpur Violence Not Sponsered By State: Maharashtra Govt

The Bombay HC reviewed a petition filed by the former Mumbai Police Commissioner, alleging that the Maharashtra Government was behind the October 2021 protest regarding the Lakhimpur violence incident. However, the Maha-Vikas Aghadi government denied the allegations and said, "No cabinet decision was taken to call for a statewide bandh”. Notably, the October 11, 2021 bandh resulted in the loss of Rs 3,000 Crore to the public exchequer.
