Prime News, National, Farmers, Protest, Mysuru, September 27:- The support for the all-India bandh call against the farm laws seems to be from a couple of farmer organisations. Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha, Hasiru Sene and Samyukta Kisan Morcha have joined hands to fight against what they call draconian farm laws.
Some organisations are only extending moral support and are not part of the protest. Some of the protesters had gathered near Mysuru KSRTC Bus station to disturb the vehicular movement.
Members of SDPI, PFI, CPI, CPI-M, AIDC and AITC who came in a rally to Sri Rangacharlu Memorial Town Hall shouted slogans against the central government. KRRS district general secretary Hosakote Basavaraju led the protest.
DCPs Pradeep Gunti and Geetha Prasanna and ACPs from some of the stations are keeping a close watch on the proceedings. Enough security has been ensured to stop protesters from disrupting the movement of vehicles.
Mysuru Commissioner of Police Dr Chandragupta has warned organisations, not to force-shut shops. He said police will be forced to take action against such organisations.
“All the police stations in the city have geared for any eventuality. People who indulge in arson or looting of public property will face legal action,” he said.
Most of the schools and colleges in the city were functioning normally. Public transport was as usual. Business activities were also normal. The busy Devaraja Market witnessed usual business. Autorickshaw and cab services operated like any other day.
SSLC supplementary examination began today and most students made it to their respective exam centre.
The exams are being conducted at People’s Park, Vijaya Vittala School and Nirmala Convent School in Mysuru and one centre each in T Narasipura and Hunsur. (MR/KS)
