Karnataka Bandh: Amit Shah rally in Mysuru postponed by a few hours

Normal life remains affected in Karnataka on Thursday, following the state-wide bandh called by several pro-Kannada outfits seeking intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Mahadayi river water-sharing row between the state and its neighbour Goa.

Private cab services like Ola and Uber will be operational during 'Karnataka Bandh' call. The shopkeepers on the busy D Devaraja Urs Road extended their support to the bandh and shut down their shops.

Schools and colleges in most parts of the state also declared a holiday, with several examinations being rescheduled in some cases. "Business Continuity Plans have been invoked to avoid disruption to mission critical project".

Buses were off the road in nearly all parts of the State.

"We are forced to shut down across the state from 6:00 a.m.to 6:00 p.m. on Thursday for the Prime Minister's intervention in getting the Mahadayi water to meet the drinking needs of the people in the state's four northern districts", Kannada Rakshana Vedike (Protection Forum) Narayana Gowda told reporters here on Wednesday.

The Bengaluru bandh will coincide with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the city to attend the state BJP's Parivarthana rally.

"Yeddyurappa" class="local_link" >BS Yeddyurappa has said that his party would enforce complete bandh in district in which Congress president Rahul Gandhi will be visiting during his Karnataka tour. "Why should there be a bandh in Mysuru?"

As the date for assembly elections in Karnataka draws closer, both the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are using state-wide bandhs to settle political scores in the poll-bound state. This clearly showed that there was political malice and that the chief minister is directly involved in planning it, he said in Huballi. BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa asked.

Questioning the silence of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi on the issue, he alleged that Siddaramaiah too has not done anything to convince Goa Congress on the matter.

In an appeal to the public to maintain peace and calm on Thursday, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said, "No one should resort to or encourage unlawful activities during the bandh. Why you have not made efforts to convince the Opposition Congress in Goa?" he asked. The project, which has been hanging since 2002, was expected to provide water to the parched North Karnataka by diverting a portion of the water of Mahadayi river.
