The sea of pro-Tipu and anti-Tipu descended to Madikeri where Tipu Jayanti was organized by the district administration. Tipu, a ruler from Karnataka has massive fan followers and critics in equal measure.

The state-convener of the Bajrang Dal, Sharan Pumpwell speaking to OneIndia confirmed that the organization along with the VHP would not call for a bandh. However, to express their anger against Tipu Jayanti and state government they have resolved to stage Raasta Roko.
