    "We have called for a bandh on Monday from 6 am to 3 pm and we have the support from all the Left parties and other political parties besides trade unions. Pro-Kannada organisations, KSRTC and BMTC workers' unions have also expressed support to our cause" said Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Dinesh Gundu Rao.

    While many organisations have come out in support of the bandh, the Federation of Karnataka State Lorry Owners and Agents Association has chosen to be neutral.

    "We are not a political organisation even though we are severely hit by the fuel price hike like any other citizen. We have extended moral support and called for a meeting on September 21 to discuss the future course of action," said G R Shanmugappa, president of South India Motor Transport Association.
