Bengaluru bandh: Shutdown called off after Karnataka High Court order

Bengaluru bandh: Shutdown called off after Karnataka High Court order

Modi said that the residents of the cyber city will be able to enjoy the benefit 160-Km long sub-urban railway network.

Karnataka has for always been demanding the PM's intervention in resolving the river water sharing dispute by calling a meeting of chief ministers of riparian states that includes Goa and Mahrashtra.

Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally in Bengaluru today, pro-Kannada outfits chose to call off the bandh called by them in the city today.

Speaking to TNM, Vatal Nagaraj said, "We are protesting against Modi here at Freedom Park".

"Shah asks us where the money has gone". The protesters will now observe a "black day". The BJP has been alleging the hand of Congress in the shutdowns which had been called on the days when Amit Shah and PM Modi were to be in the state. Its state chief and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, who has already met Modi seeking his intervention in Mahadayi dispute, said the PM was yet to give an assurance.

Stating that the BJP is ready to pre-empt any possible attempts by the State Government to scuttle the rally by preventing people from reaching the venue, the State BJP Chief said that more than 100 volunteers, all IT professionals, have been roped in to popularise Modi's visit.

The visitors have also been prolific on their travels, scoring two or more goals in 12 of their last 15 away games . I can guarantee you that the academy and youth team coaches at Man City will be really disheartened by that.

Though the river Mahadayi or Mandovi flows 29 km in Karnataka and 52 km in Goa, its catchment area is spread over 2,032 km in the southern state as against 1,580 km in Goa.

The Mahadayi Water Tribunal, set-up in 2010 on the appeal made by Goa, ordered the Karnataka government to stall Kalasa-Banduri Nala project.

The Tribunal, headed by J.N. Panchal, on July 28, 2016 rejected the state's petition for releasing the water, citing various grounds, including ecological damage the twin canal projects may cause.

On January 30, members of National Students Union of India (NSUI) staged a "Pakoda protest" mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Bengaluru. "We will march towards the rally venue to meet the prime minister". We are demanding our share of the river. "He must spell out his stand on whether he will intervene or not", The Hindu quoted him as saying.

Modi will address a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rally in Bengaluru on Sunday which will conclude the party's 90-day Nava Nirman Parivarthan yatra across poll-bound Karnataka.
