Bengaluru to be paralysed, yet again; Karnataka bandh likely on Sept 26
Bengaluru, Sept 22: Normal life in Karnataka and in its capital city Bengaluru may be affected once again on Saturday, Sept 26. The state may observe bandh.
This time Kannada Chaluvali Vatal Paksha and other pro-Kannada organisations reiterated their demand over Kalasa-Banduri project by Goa and Maharashthra.
More than 900 pro-Kannada outfits in Karnataka reportedly extended their support to the bandh to express their outrage against the delay in implementing the project.
