While stating that neither Congress, nor the government, has anything to do with the bandh, he claimed that he has earlier asked BJP to request Kannada organisations against organising the bandh. The Bruhat Bengaluru Chemists and Druggists' Association said that while it supports the bandh, medical shops will be open.

Karnataka's Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy had on Wednesday urged pro-Kannada organisations and the other protesters to observe a peaceful Bandh on January 25.

The 84-year old veteran, who served as Prime Minister from June, 1996 to April, 1997, was at his critical best as he took on the Congress regime ahead of the Assembly polls in the State which are to be held soon. Until his intervention, we will conduct protests at different stages. "Finally, we will also stage protest in front of Parliament in Delhi", he said.

The educational institutions have chose to remain shut in view of the security of the students.

A holiday has been declared to the schools and colleges on January 25th as precautionary measure. The bandh has been announced on the same day BJP National President Amit Shah is to address a rally in Mysuru. The outfits, which are protesting against the non-implementation of the Kalasa-Banduri dam project, want Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene in the dispute between Karnataka and Goa, the Hindustan Times reported. "BJP has started the parivartana yatra for not only to change the government, but also to bring change in the lives of youth and to give security to the women of Karnataka", he said. "From this land of Mysuru, the land of goddess Chamundeshwari, my only appeal to the people of Karnataka is to root out corrupt, malicious and oppressive Siddaramaiah government", Shah said. Attempts have been made by Karnataka to amicably solve the issue pending before the Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal through discussion have failed to bear fruit.
