Buses stay off roads, bandh total in Bengaluru
Normal life in several parts of the city was affected by a statewide  dawn to dusk bandh called by Pro Kannada organisations seeking speedy implementation of the Kalasa-Banduri and Mekedatu projects.

Vehicular movement was paralysed during the bandh with thousands of commuters left stranded at different places. The KSRTC, BMTC buses,  taxis and autorikshaws  kept off the roads.  The city’s roads, known for notorious traffic snarls, had a deserted look.

Bandh supporters pelted stones at private buses near town hall. Police have been deployed at every junction to avoid any untoward incidents.

Most of the Schools and colleges remain closed across the city. Sensing the inconvenience, some private schools and colleges had already  declared holiday.

Auto rickshaw, taxi and lorry owners' associations have also joined the bandh. The bandh is almost total as various  departments have sanctoned a day's earned leave to the state government employees today.

The roads are blocked from Town Hall  to Freedom Park as pro kannada organisations hold a march in the morning.
