Karnataka bandh: Protesters hurl stones at buses, private cars

Feb 13, 2020 12:56 IST

Normal life was affected in Karnataka on Thursday during a 'bandh' called by some Kannada outfits demanding implementation of a 3 decades-old report which suggested that the gvt provide more jobs for Kannadiga youths in the government and the private sector. Protesters hurled stones at a bus in Farangipet on Thursday, while services of app-based cabs like Ola and Uber were also affected. State bus services, however, are operating as usual and schools and colleges are functioning normally. Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has appealed to the pro-Kannada groups not to cause any inconvenience to the public and approach him for talks.
