Auto-rickshaws lined up in Bhubaneswar on Thursday due to 12 hour strike

Bhubaneswar: Thousands of daily commuters across the state were left in the lurch after auto-rickshaws and taxis have kept off roads since 6 am today as part of the 12-hour strike called by different associations of auto rickshaw and taxi drivers demanding social and financial security.

Office goers, students and people in general were seen either waiting for city buses or walking to their destinations.

Buses ran packed and seemed too little to cater to the surging crowd as many waited for hours at bus stops.
