THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The dawn to dusk hartal called by the BJP to protest against the fuel price hike has started in the state. All emergency services have been exempted from the hartal.

Bus services, including the state-run KSRTC, taxis and other modes of public transport are off the road, hitting the mobility of people seriously.

Initial reports said train services were not affected by the strike called to protest against the fuel price hike.

Business activity came to a virtual halt with shops remaining closed throughout the state and commercial vehicles keeping off the roads.

Essential services like water and power supplies were, however, not affected by the strike.
