Mahadayi could trigger more bandhs in Karnataka as political sparring continues

Mahadayi could trigger more bandhs in Karnataka as political sparring continues”

Meanwhile, the Mahadayi water-sharing dispute between Karnataka and Goa has remained a hard nut to crack for multiple governments; it has been a rallying point for all the political parties during elections.

The state government has deployed police personnel to maintain law and order situation.

"On account of the shutdown called by various organizations, as a precautionary measure, Wipro Limited has declared holiday for employees in Karnataka today".

Incidents of stone throwing were also reported, as the organisers targeted shops that refused to close their shops. While the river originates in Karnataka, a major part of it flows in Goa.

On allegations of the Congress tacitly supporting the bandh, he says, "None of the ministers will interfere with any of these bandhs and we are not supporting anybody". Shah said despite "desperate attempt" to disrupt the rally here by organising the bandh, "we have managed to hold it and been successful at it".

Several pro-Kannada organisations called for a "Karnataka Bandh" on January 25, 2018 towards the on-going inter-state Mahadayi river water dispute with Goa, which is expected to affect normal life across the state.

However, Modi's visit to Bengaluru was postponed, and he will step into Karnataka on February 4 to attend the conclusion of Parivarthan Yatra of BJP.

In response, BJP has called for bandhs in districts when Congress President Rahul Gandhi visits Karnataka, which is scheduled to go to polls later this year.

BJP president Amit Shah today hit out at the Siddaramaiah government, dubbing it "a corrupt, malicious and oppressive" regime and asked the people to "root it out" in the upcoming assembly polls. Yeddyurappa alleged that Siddaramaiah was indulging in this kind of act purposefully with an intention that Shah's programme should not succeed. "I have not heard of any Chief Minister behaving in such a manner".

The 12-hour shutdown was observed for getting the Mahadayi river water from neighbouring Goa to meet the drinking needs of the people in Belagavi, Bagalkote, Dharwad and Hubballi districts.

What is the Mahadayi river water dispute?

Karnataka plans to build two canals at Kalasa and Banduri, which are the tributaries of the river in the state, to divert and supply the water to the four districts.

Kharge said that the Centre is not paying attention to the issue and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "neglecting" it.
