Bandh in 4 districts on Mahadayi on Dec 27

The Mahadayi & Kalasa-Banduri Horata Samanvaya Samiti has called for a bandh of four districts in the Malaprabha command area on December 27, demanding immediate intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to resolve Mahadayi dispute through talks.

"There were huge expectations from Yeddyurappa, but they were belied. A mere letter by the Goa CM to Yeddyurappa would do nothing to resolve the dispute. The BJP, which did not respond to the demand all these years, has now played a political gimmick just for elections," samiti convener Rajanna Koravi said.

He told reporters that the bandh in Dharwad, Gadag, Bagalkot and Belagavi districts on December 27 would send a message to the prime minister that he should hold a meeting of the state governments concerned to resove the issue.

After a meeting here on Friday, the samiti office-bearers decided to hold a bandh and to communicate it to other organisations involved in the agitation in the region.

Terming Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar's letter to state BJP president B S Yeddyurappa as a mere eyewash, Mahadayi agitators in Hubballi opined that there ought to have been a formal meeting between the governments and an affidavit should have been submitted before the Tribunal.
