As Dalit section of India called for Bharat Bandh on Monday, citizens suffered because of the wild outrage in the country. Indian Railways was one of the sectors that were majorly affected by the Bandh.

The protesters tried to jam rail and road traffic in various parts of the country including Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Odisha, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Delhi.

However, citizens who had no way to get out of the situation, expressed their helplessness and fear on Twitter.





On March 20, the Supreme Court diluted the provisions of the SC/ST Act. The court also directed that without prior sanction, the government servants should not be arrested. 

The Dalit organizations and Dalit Shoshan Mukti Manch are protesting against the verdict in fear that "dilution" of the provisions of Act may lead to increase in violence against the community.

However, the Railway authorities have not made any official announcement of any damage to its property.

While the New Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani made an unscheduled stop at the Mathura Junction, some onboard passengers claimed that the trains were stopped because of the "uprooted" tracks near the Hindaun City railway station under the Kota Railway division of West Central Railway zone.

The Divisional Railway Manager claimed that the Jaisalmer-Kathgodam Express and the Ajmer-Kishanganj Express had been diverted due to the agitation.

According to the official statement, as many as seven people have died in the protest till now.
