Protesting farmers block highway, traffic affected

The Mekedatu Horata Samiti members staged a roadblock protest in front of the excise department on Tuesday demanding the immediate implementation of the Mekedatu project.  

As a result of the roadblock, the traffic on Bangalore-Mysore road was affected for some time and vehicles piled up into a jam. The farmers sat on either side of the road blocking traffic.  

The farmers warned that the government that if the project is not implemented immediately, they will intensify their protests and march to Vidhana Soudha, Bengaluru.
