The nation wide strike call by the LEFT has affected Belgaum in some respects. Autos are off the road; tough a few are seen on the road. The city buses are still plying normally. The shops in the main market have pulled down their shutters and cleaning the shops.
As Banks, BSNL, Insurance employees are part of the strike all work in the offices on a stand still. A procession is planned at 11 am.
