Davanagere, Jun 7: The 'Davanagere Bandh,' called by 'Raitha Sangha' demanding supply of fertilisers and seeds, evoked a good response here with all commercial establishments remaining closed today.

Nationalised banks and educational institutions remained closed, while the agitating farmers forced the State and Central Government offices to stop functioning.

Cinema halls suspended shows and business establishments downed their shutters.

The farmers had been agitating since last one week for adequate supply of fertilisers and seeds.

No untoward incidents were reported so far and the vehicles were being diverted to the bypass road from the highway, police said.

Meanwhile, the district authorities had procured 2,400 tonnes fertilisers, which were likely to be distributed by this evening.
