Mangaluru/Udupi, Sept 28: The Karnataka bandh call given by farmers’ organisations in the state in protest against the amendments to the agricultural produce market committee (APMC) and land reforms acts introduced by the B S Yediyurappa government evoked lukewarm response in twin coastal districts. 

Several labour organisations, pro-Kannada outfits and the Congress and the JD(S), who had opposed the bills in the assembly, extended support to the call for the bandh. However, CM has said that the government wouldn't allow the disruption of public services. 

Police in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi have taken steps to abort any attempt to forceful imposition of bandh. Hence, the normal life of the citizens remained unaffected. 

Government and private buses are also moving normally in these districts. In Mangaluru, most of the business establishments and offices have opened their shutters.

In Udupi six Karnataka State Reserve Police and district armed police have been posted at strategic places with hundreds of policemen patrolling the streets. Police also have warned citizens of stringent action if they are found to be violating the COVID 19 guidelines.

Several protesters and activists were detained when they tried to stage a road blockade in Udupi. Those arrested include Ramesh Kanchan, Congress councillor, Balakrishna Shetty, CPI(M) district secretary, Ganesh Nergi, Congress leader, Prakhyath Shetty, vice president of Udupi district unit of the Congress.

Shivamogga, Sept 24: Vehicular movement between Udupi and Shivamogga has come to standstill due to the collapse of a bridge at Ranjadakatte village, near Thirthahalli, about 40 km from here.

According to official sources, the damage was caused due to heavy rain that lashed the Malnad belt for over one week. The water level rose in the stream leading to the collapse of a large portion of the bridge and thus vehicles from either side were stranded.

Hundreds of commuters from across Shimoga, Davangere, Chitradurga, and various other surrounding districts have been travelling via this bridge to reach Udupi, Manipal for medical treatment.
