Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation buses came to the rescue of tourists who were stranded in Munnar and Thekkady. Cab operators too made several trips from the tourist spots to Cumbum and Theni. However, people had to shell out more money to reach their destination.Kochi Metro operated its usual services that brought relief to the public

Thanking the people for making the hartal a grand success, Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala said the hartal was in protest against the anti-people policies of the Central and State Governments and the rising fuel prices.
