Brahmagiri: Normal life was thrown out of gear in Brahmagiri on account of a bandh called by Congress demanding arrest of Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare minister Sanjay Dasburma for having accepted a vehicle allegedly gifted by Artha Tatwa chit fund owner Pradeep Sethi.
Shops and business establishments were shut across the town while vehicular movement also came to a grinding halt.
According to sources, Congress activists staged demonstrations across various parts of the town blocking roads. However, no untoward incidents were reported during the stir.
Notably, while charging Dasburma with having links with scam-tainted Artha Tatwa chit fund, senior Congress leader Lalatendu Bidyadhar (Lulu) Mohapatra had alleged that the minister had received a Pajero SUV from the Ponzi company as a gift.
