Shutdown call in Karnataka for Mahadayi water on Thursday

Hubballi: Farmers of the Malaprabha river basin have chose to call a bandh in all cities that Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits to campaign for the coming state assembly poll to draw his attention to their suffering while the Mahadayi river dispute prolongs with Goa.

The outfits supporting the call for bandh are demanding that the Centre intervene in the dispute and resolve it immediately.

"Schools and colleges in Ballari district of Karnataka will remain closed tomorrow in the light of the state-wide bandh called by the pro-Kannada organisations and farmers' welfare associations", Deputy Commissioner Ramprasath Manohar said.

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.

Although the shutdown did not affect train and flight operations in Bengaluru, hundreds of passengers were stranded at railway stations and the airport in the absence of state-owned and private buses and taxis. The bandh call evokes good response in Dharwad.

Various pro-Kannada organisations led by the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike and Vatal Nagaraj, leader of Kannada Chalavali Vatal Paksha (KCVP) are leading the bandh all over the state.

Since it's not a franchise model, the league will sport a uniform salary cap and punishment system, among other factors. Teams will supposedly be formed in 2019, and games won't be played until 2020.

"The Congress has instigated various organisations to call for bandh on Jan.25 and Feb.4 so as to coincide with Amit Shah and Modi's Karnataka visit".

The Mahadayi river (Mandovi in Goa) rises in the Western Ghats in Karnataka's Belagavi district.

They demand the PM's intervention in the Kalasa-Banduri Nala project by bringing a compromise between Goa and Maharashtra, so that the state of Karnataka can get its share of the waters. Majority of these examinations are part of distance education programmes.

What is the Mahadayi river water dispute? A similar bandh is planned for February 4 when PM Modi campaigns in the poll-bound state.

Stating that party workers are being informed about the bandh, Yeddyurappa said BJP was not calling for a State-wide bandh, but for a bandh in those districts on the day Rahul Gandhi would visit them.

Repeated efforts by the state seeking the prime minister's intervention to solve the issue has also not been successful.
