Kushalnagar bandh receives good response

The Kushalnagar bandh call given by the Kaveri Taluk Horata Kendriya Samithi condemning the state government's failure to declare Kushalnagar Kaveri taluk in the budget received a good response on Monday. 

All the merchants had downed the shutter of their business establishments in the morning.

All the business activities had remained silent following the bandh. Only a few private buses and maxicabs operated their services. The autorickshaws remained off the road. 

Film theatres and hotels remained closed. As a result, the tourists who had visited from far away places had to struggle to get eatables.

Though the KSRTC buses operated, the number of passengers was minimal. A few of the private schools and colleges had declared holidays on account of the bandh. 

A few visitors visited tourist spots of Kaveri Nisargadhama, Dubare, Harangi and others. 

Members of various organisations staged a protest led by Samithi convener V P Shashidhar.

As a precautionary measure, the police had strengthened security in Kushalnagar. Superintendent of Police Suman D Pennekar visited Kushalnagar.
