Centre responsible for Mahadayi dispute: Kharge


The response to the shutdown call, to seek PM's intervention in the Mahadayi river dispute, ranged from total to poor in rest of the state. To ensure that law and order is maintained across the state, more than 15,000 police personnel have been deployed, with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah warning that no one should take the law into their own hands.

Earlier in the day, a group of protestors tried to disrupt rail services by entering the Bengaluru's Sangolli Rayanna railway station but police stopped and detained them.

While the trigger for the bandh seems to be the deadlock over the Mahadayi issue, the timing of the bandh-coinciding with the last day of BJP's 75-day Parivarthana Rally-smacks of politics.

Pro-Kannada outfits have also called a Bengaluru Bandh on February 4, when Modi will be here to address a rally, with the BJP seeing the shutdown as a "politically motivated" move instigated by the ruling Congress to synchronise with the visits of the prime minister and BJP chief.




The Karnataka bandh has been called to put pressure on the state and central governments to resolve the Mahadayi water sharing dispute.

"When several organisations have already called for a bandh on January 25 over Mahadayi issue, what is the need for another Bengaluru-specific bandh on February 4?", Shettar asked.

KSRTC buses to Goa operated as usual. According to the sources, the associated management of the primary and secondary schools in Karnataka have urged the private school to keep safety and security of staff as well as students if they are opening schools during Karnataka bandh.

Speaking to reporters in Mysuru, BJP MP Pratap Simha called it a government sponsored bandh, alleging that the intention was to disrupt Shah's rally. "BJP leaders were embarrassed by the empty chairs during the previous rally attended by Shah in Bengaluru", mocked the CM, adding that he was not petty minded to obstruct the BJP's rally. While the river originates from Karnataka, a major part of it flows in Goa. Karnataka wants to construct dams and canals under the Kalasa-Banduri Nala project to divert water from the Mahadayi river basin to the parched districts of Belgaum, Dharwad and Gadag in north Karnataka, but Goa has raised objections to the project.
