Kannada organisations call for state wide Bandh, normal life hit hard

Kannada organisations call for state wide Bandh, normal life hit hard

"Essential services like ambulance, hospitals, milk supply, sale of vegetables and fruits and drugs through medical shops will be available to avoid inconvenience to the public", noted Gowda.

Similar reports have come from different parts of the state, where the bandh was peaceful. Autorickshaws and cabs were few and costly, and some aggregators resorted to surge pricing.

Wipro and Accenture have declared holiday for their employees in Karnataka in view of the statewide bandh that has called today.

Protesters held road-roko protests and tried to disrupt rail services at Bengaluru's Sangolli Rayanna station.

While the film industry and multiplexes made a decision to remain shut, hospitals and clinics are expected to function as usual, with the Indian Medical Association office bearers stating that they will be extending moral support by wearing a black band.

Karnataka and Goa have locked horns over the sharing of the Mahadayi River water, with the southern state seeking a release of 7.56 tmcft water for the Kalasa-Banduri Nala project.

Trump plan would sharply change legal immigration
In August 2016, Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump , released a 10-point immigration plan that included the end of DACA .

The districts are Belagavi, Bhagalkote, Dharwad and Gadag in the northwest.

Showing solidarity with Mahadayi agitators, the Kannada movie sector has extended its support so that no movies will be shot in Karnataka that day, nor will there be any movie shows.

"The Congress has instigated various organisations to call for bandh on Jan.25 and Feb.4 so as to coincide with Amit Shah and Modi's Karnataka visit".

Kannada Paksha leader Vatal Nagaraj along with the Mahadayi Agitation Committee had planned for a Karnataka bandh on January 27.

The state unit of the BJP had earlier alleged that the two bandhs were backed by Congress chief minister Siddaramaiah to pressurise the central government to ensure the resolution of the Mahadayi river water sharing dispute. Pro-Kannada outfits have called for a Karnataka bandh on Thursday when Shah will address a rally in Mysuru and a Bengaluru bandh on 4 February, the day Modi arrives to address a rally. The number of people who will attend Modi's rally on February 4 will make it clear BJP will win the election that will happen in April-May, Shah said.

The outfits are demanding that Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervenes in the dispute between Goa and Karnataka.
