60% Kannada on signboard: Vedike repeats 2017 vandalism, IT hub Bengaluru turns language-battleground

Karnataka Police detained several protesters, including Karnataka Rakshna Vedike President T.A. Narayana Gowda, following their demonstration for 60% Kannada on all Bengaluru signboards, which later escalated into vandalism.

Protesters defaced, spray-painted, and removed city signboards. They also vandalised the signboard of the multi-city hotel chain Bloom and entered the premises, chanting pro-Kannada slogans.

The group had initially set a December 27 deadline for the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to enforce the 60% Kannada rule. Under pressure, the BBMP has now extended the deadline to February 28.
