Mahadayi: B’luru bandh likely on Feb 4

The federation of pro-Kannada organisations has decided to call for a Karnataka bandh on January 25, and Bengaluru bandh on February 4 (or the day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrives in Bengaluru), demanding that Modi resolve the Mahadayi river issue.

A decision in this regard was taken at a meeting of various pro-Kannada organisations and Kalasa-Banduri agitation committee here on Sunday.

At a press conference, it was announced that the rest of Karnataka would be shut from 6 am to 6 pm on January 25, in solidarity with the Kalasa-Banduri agitators, who are on a protest for the past 915 days, seeking water from Mahaday river to three parched districts of Gadag, Dharwad and Bagalkot.
