The bandh would be a state wide one. It would commence at 8 am tomorrow and would go on till evening. All establishments have been asked to down shutters tomorrow in wake of the bandh call given by the BJP.

While the entire state would witness a bandh, the capital city of Bengaluru would be exempted from it. Leader of the opposition, B S Yeddyurappa said that the state wide bandh on May 28 is not sponsored by the BJP, but is supported by it against Kumaraswamy.

He said that the Karnataka bandh was being called as Kumaraswamy had failed to announce the farm loan waiver within 24 hours of coming to power. He said that the CM during his election campaign had promised to waive off farm loans.

Several farmer organisations had taken exception to the delay in announcing the loan waiver. They have come forward voluntarily to observe the Karnataka bandh tomorrow, Yeddyurappa also said. He said that the BJP is extending its support to the agitation.

Yeddyurappa appealed to all merchants and businessmen to down shutters and extend their support to the Bandh as the farmers were suffering. He clarified that Bengaluru was exempted from the bandh and added that in the rest of the state, the bandh would be observed between 8 am and 6 pm.
