The bandh called by Opposition parties as part of the 'Jan Aakrosh Divas' being observed across the nation against the government over the demonetisation issue received lukewarm response in Rajasthan as normal life remained unaffected.
"Preparations should have been made before demonetising the currency notes. People are facing hardships in exchanging scrapped notes and are left with no cash-in-hand. Normal life has been badly hit," AAP leader Amit Lio alleged.
He said the business community has welcomed demonetisation because of its far reaching impact.
"People from the trade and industry, and common men have not supported the bandh and therefore there was no impact," the Mahasangh's secretary AjayVijayvargiya.
There was no visible impact of the bandh at markets in Sikar and normal life remained unaffected.
The joint rally was addressed by CPI(M) leader and former MLA Amra Ram who said that rich people have faced no difficulties but the common man is facing hardship for currency and difficulties in meeting daily expenses.
