Why Karnataka State Bandh Today? – What happened

Published on

Two days following the Bengaluru Bandh, the entire state of Karnataka is currently observing a strike, organized by pro-Kannada organizations. The protests span the state and are in opposition to the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, particularly in light of drought conditions affecting multiple districts. Karnataka authorities have bolstered security measures and deployed additional forces statewide to manage protesters and maintain law and order.

Here are the key highlights:

  1. Section 144 Imposed: Section 144 has been enforced in various districts, including Mandya, Bengaluru, Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Ramanagara, and Hassan.
  2. Protests in Bengaluru: Demonstrations have taken place near key locations such as Town Hall and Freedom Park in Bengaluru.
  3. Transport Disruptions: Transportation and travel have been severely impacted in several districts. KSRTC (Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation) buses are operating in single digits compared to their usual numbers, and a total of 44 flights have been canceled to and from the Bengaluru International Airport.
  4. Protests in Tamil Nadu: Protests have also been organized on the Tamil Nadu side of the Cauvery river. Officials from Tamil Nadu have expressed their intention to appeal to the Supreme Court to instruct Karnataka to release 5,000 cusecs of water.
  5. Educational Institutions Closed: In light of the bandh, all schools, colleges, and other educational institutions in Bengaluru, Mysuru, Chamarajanagara, Ramanagara, Mandya, and Hassan have been granted a holiday for the day.
