Reliance Retail Store

Despite the formation of a Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu bandh on Wednesday had an overall effect in protest against the continuing discrimination from the Jammu division and not taking care of the business interests of Jammu. As a result, business establishments remained closed in Jammu and other districts during the bandh.


Shops remained closed in most of the markets of Jammu city during the bandh. Except for medicine shops, all other shops have been closed since morning. Since today’s bandh was for the issues of the traders, the traders kept their shops closed without any coercion.


Supporting the Jammu bandh, on Wednesday, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association also suspended work today. As a result, the lawyers did not appear during the hearing of the cases during this period, due to which the court work was also affected to some extent.


During the Jammu bandh, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry workers, Jammu demonstrated outside the Chamber House located at Railhead Complex. In contrast, the shopkeepers of Traders Federation Ware House-Nehru Market demonstrated outside the Ware House during the bandh. Warehouse traders mainly opposed the opening of Reliance Retail store, saying that they would oppose the government’s move till the end.
