Bengaluru: Pro-Kannada organizations are set to stage a statewide Karnataka Bandh on September 29, expressing their opposition to the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu and demanding the full implementation of irrigation projects. Vatal Nagaraj, the President of the forum representing pro-Kannada organizations, made this announcement, as reported by local media.
Nagaraj, in a statement to the press, clarified that they would not be participating in the Bengaluru bandh scheduled for tomorrow, as they believe it to be politically motivated. Instead, they plan to stage a protest at Raj Bhavan tomorrow, vehemently opposing the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu.
This is a developing news story, and further details are anticipated.
