The general secretary of the ABSU, Lawrence Islary, general secretary of NDFB (P), Swmkhwr and chief convenor of PJACBM, Rakesh Boro, said in a statement that the engine bandh was advanced by a day as September 30 is Mahalaya, a religious occasion.

He, however, said the tiol highways and schools/colleges/university bus/vans would be exempted from the bandh and all the shops with business establishments would remain open during bandh hours.
