KARNATAKA BANDH LIVE UPDATES: BUS SERVICES SUSPENDED, PROTESTERS HELD, NORMAL LIFE HIT DUE TO BANDH OVER MAHADAYI RIVER ROW

Normal life remains affected in Karnataka on Thursday, following the state-wide bandh called by several pro-Kannada outfits seeking intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Mahadayi river water-sharing row between the state and its neighbour Goa.

The dawn-to-dusk bandh has thrown life out of gear, particularly in Bengaluru and northern districts that come under Malaprabha river basin. Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) and Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) had said that they will operate buses as the unions have not supported the bandh. Employees, drivers and conductors were expected to join work. Police said elaborate security arrangements have been made across the state to ensure that no untoward incident occurs. Several examinations have also been rescheduled. Though public utility services said they would remain operational, things have changed on the basis of the severity of the bandh.
