Pune/UNI: More than 3,000 people were detained across Maharashtra on Friday for participating in a bandh called by Prakash Ambedkar-led Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and "wrong" economic policies of the Centre.

Talking to UNI, state spokesman for VBA Siddharth Mokale said the bandh was 'total' with the support of more than 100 organisations.

In Pune, the protestors pelted stones on some vehicles at Duttwadi areas and Kothru, an officer of police control room said.

Barring minor incidents of stone pelting on state-run transport in Mumbai near Chembur, no untoward incident has been reported so far.

Mokale said there would be demonstrations in some areas during the day without impacting the people and the traffic, he said.

The VBA leader alleged that there was unrest in the country over the CAA, which the Centre was trying to implement forcibly.

The country was on the path of economic bankruptcy, he said. Demonetisation and GST, coupled with atmosphere of mistrust in the country, prevented the government from getting revenues. The economic policies of the Centre are wrong," he said the Centre is just trying to divert the attention of people by bringing in such acts.
