Bangalore, Nov 17 (UNI) City commuters were put to a lot of inconvenience as traffic in most parts of the city went haywire in the wake of a mammoth convention held by the Janata Dal(S) in here today.
Vehicles plying on all major arteries were stranded for hours while police remained clueless on how to ease the congestion.
The home-bound State and Central Government employees felt the heat more as snail paced traffic movement resulted in them reaching home late in the night.
The JD(S), which organised the workers meeting on the Palace grounds, claimed to have mobilised over two lakh party loyalists who came from all parts of the state in vehicles.
They came to witness former Karantaka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy assuming charge as the new JD(S) state president.
A large number foreigners, including corporate biggies, were seen spending long time in state-run 'Vayu Vajra' buses on their way or back to the city from the Bengaluru International Airport.
