Bandh call evokes lukewarm response in other parts of state

Bandh call evokes lukewarm response in other parts of stateā€

They claim around 2,000 pro-Kannada outfits have backed this bandh call.

The state unit of the BJP had earlier alleged that the two bandhs were backed by Congress chief minister Siddaramaiah to pressurise the central government to ensure the resolution of the Mahadayi river water sharing dispute.

Most public transport services and taxis are expected to continue normal services.

Some activists from the Kannada Rakshana Vedike tried to stop trains from operating at the City Railway station in the morning, but they were quickly dispersed by the police.

Tuesday forecast: Seasonal but getting warmer the rest of the week
A hazardous weather outlook says wind gusts of 40 to 45 miles per hour are possible through the afternoon. A warmer day is ahead Tuesday in central Oklahoma with less wind, the National Weather Service reports.

Bengaluru, Mysuru and Malaprabha Command Area's districts like Belagavi, Gadag, Dharwad and Bagalkot bore the maximum brunt.

On 25 January, BJP president Amit Shah will be in Mysuru to participate in the "Parivarthana Yathre" of BJP leader and former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa.

Asked if the party was prepared for a bandh when Rahul Gandhi visits Karnataka, state Congress working president Dinesh Gundurao said, "the bandh is to get the attention of the Prime Minister Modi on the issue, what has Rahul Gandhi got to do with it?"

On allegations of the Congress tacitly supporting the bandh, he says, "None of the ministers will interfere with any of these bandhs and we are not supporting anybody". Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru on Thursday, film producer Sa Ra Govindu demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should intervene in the Mahadayi river water sharing row and direct the Goa government to share water with Karnataka.

But Tim Cook doesn't recommend they do
Late a year ago , Apple acknowledged it was using software updates to slow down batteries in an effort to prevent them from shutting off suddenly.

In the wake of the bandh, schools and colleges, even private companies such as Wipro, have declared a holiday. While a major part of Mahadayi flows in Goa, its tributaries nourish parts of Maharashtra and Karnataka.

Agitators are holding protests in Attibelle, Bangalore Urban district Karnataka, over Mahadayi water dispute. Hoping to end Congress' rule in the state, BJP is banking on Modi and Shah to boost its prospects in the state where the Grand Old Party too is on a strong wicket.

What is the Mahadayi river water dispute?

"This is one hundred percent a political vendetta", says Jagadish Shettar, Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly and added this is a "completely government sponsored bandh".

Oscar Melendo: 'Unforgettable' to score first senior goal vs. Barcelona
I hope that all that does not happen at Camp Nou: "nobody should be insulted and things should not be thrown onto the pitch". Barca had not lost to Espanyol since 2009 and this was their first defeat by their local rivals in the Cup since 1970.
