Karnataka Bandh News LIVE: Members of pro-Kannada organizations, protesting against the Cauvery Water Issue, were detained by the Bengaluru Police in the vicinity of Attibele.

This strike has been called for by farmer groups and pro-Kannada organizations. The protests are slated to occur throughout the state as a response to the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, especially in light of the prevailing drought conditions in Karnataka.

To maintain law and order and handle the situation, the Karnataka police are making preparations to deploy additional forces across the state.

Protests have erupted in Karnataka due to the release of Cauvery river water to Tamil Nadu. These protests come in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to refrain from interfering with the directives issued by the Cauvery Water Management Authority (CWMA) and its auxiliary body, the Cauvery Water Regulation Committee (CWRC), which instructed Karnataka to carry out the water release.

In the latest development, the CWRC has ordered Karnataka to release 3,000 cusecs of Cauvery water from Biligundlu, effective from September 28 to October 15, 2023, marking a reduction from the previous release of 5,000 cusecs.

Furthermore, during a press conference held by actor Siddharth to promote his film, members of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Swabhimani Sene disrupted the event and demanded his departure from the venue. They asserted their displeasure, citing that the timing was inappropriate for such promotional activities, given Tamil Nadu’s ongoing demand for Cauvery River water from Karnataka.
