Karnataka bandhs put BJP in uncomfortable position as Congress leverages Mahadayi issue
Normal life was disrupted in several areas of Karnataka on Thursday on the first day of the statewide shutdown by pro-Kannada outfits seeking Prime Minister Narendra Modi's intervention in Mahadayi river water dispute with Goa.
All government and private schools and educational institutes will also remain shut.
The two BJP leaders along with MLAs Basavaraj Bommai and C C Patil squarely blamed Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for instigating the protestors to create a law and order situation in the city and blame the BJP during the Prime Minister's visit. Bus, train, flight all services will be stopped.
The 12-hour shutdown was observed for getting the Mahadayi river water from neighbouring Goa to meet the drinking needs of the people in Belagavi, Bagalkote, Dharwad and Hubballi districts.
"Kannada organisations backing out from the bandh on January 25 is absolutely false", he said. So there will be no buses moving inside the city, and even those planning to go out of the state will have to wait till the bandh is over.
"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. The confederations has called for a 6 am to 6 pm bandh demanding that Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervene in the issue.
Agitators are holding protests in Attibelle, Bangalore Urban district Karnataka, over Mahadayi water dispute. While stating that neither Congress, nor the government, has anything to do with the bandh, he claimed that he has earlier asked BJP to request Kannada organisations against organising the bandh. The bandh has been called for by the Confederation of Pro-Kannada Organisations led by Vatal Nagaraj, who are protesting against the Goa government regarding the Mahadayi river water dispute. 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 Goa Ministry for Water Resources Development (WRD) on Thursday formed a special team to monitor whether Karnataka or Maharashtra governments continue with the works of building and operating canals along the Mahadayi basin for diversion of water.
