Commuters in Kolkata had to face a harrowing time as police deployed at Kolkata and Howrah diverted traffic from many central Kolkata roads owing to Bengal BJP's march to the secretariat.

The Howrah bridge, the Second Hoogly bridge and Esplanade were barricaded to prevent the BJP worker's movement.

For the unversed, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is carrying out protest against the alleged corrupt practices of the TMC government.

Earlier on Monday, Kolkata traffic police had issued an advisory asking commuters to avoid certain roads and routes.

Leader of Opposition in West Bengal Assembly Suvendu Adhikari was detained while trying to visit Santragachi during the BJP's protest march to state secretariat Nabanna'.

BJP MP Locket Chatterjee and party leader Rahul Sinha were also detained and whisked away in a prison van.
