The ambulance carrying the two year old baby got stuck in the traffic snarl caused due to the bandh and protesters allegedly creating ruckus on the roads by creating traffic jam, burning tyres and pelting stones at the private vehicles.
BJP came down heavily on the opposition after they came to know about the incident and slammed Congress for their “mediocre declaration of a Nation wide bandh” which has already caused lot of problems to the public.
The Bharat Bandh called by the Congress-led Opposition parties to protest against the petrol and diesel price hike allegedly led to the death of a two year old girl in Bihar’s Jehanabad. According to reports, the auto rickshaw transporting the baby and her father to the hospital was stuck in a traffic jam caused by protesters for several hours, which led to her demise.

Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has condemned the bandh and expressed grief on the violent way the Bandh has been conducted across the country. “Everyone has a right to protest but what is happening today? Petrol pumps and buses being set ablaze, putting to risk lives. A child died after an ambulance was stuck in the protests in Bihar’s Jehanabad. Who is responsible?,” the minister said in a press conference in New Delhi.

The minister further added: “People of India may be upset over petrol and diesel price rise but they do not stand with the violent protests being held today. The opposition parties are trying to create a sense of fear among the public.”
Meanwhile, a district authority official denied the report that traffic jam caused by protesters led to the death of the child. “The death of the child is not because of the bandh or in anyway related to traffic jam, the relatives had left from their home,” SDO Paritosh Kumar told media.
