Bhubaneswar: All schools in Odisha would remain closed on Monday in view of Bharat bandh call given by Congress, informed School and Mass Education Department Principal Secretary PK Mohapatra.
On Friday, taking note of Bharat Bandh call over rising fuel prices, the State Government asked the Secretariat employees to come to office by 9.30 am on that day.
The main gate of the Secretariat will be closed at 10.35 am. Cars sans requisite pass would not be allowed to enter the Secretariat.
The Congress has called a Bharat Bandh on September 10 over rising fuel prices while several opposition parties, including the Samajwadi Party, DMK and the NCP, have extended support to its call.
While the Left parties have given a separate call for bandh on the same day, the Trinamool Congress will organise street protests but would not enforce a shutdown in West Bengal.
