CHAMARAJANAGAR: A peaceful bandh was observed in Chamarajanagar on Tuesday in response to the bandh call by the district unit of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike. The bandh was called to urge the Union Government to take steps to stop the ongoing Rs. 1,334-crore Hogenakkal Integrated Drinking Water Project taken up by the Tamil Nadu Government until the joint survey work was completed at the disputed area of Hogenakkal falls.

The Chamarajanagar district police detained more than 43 vedike activists, including district unit president C.M. Manjunath Gowda, when they tried to take out a procession against the Tamil Nadu Government. They raised slogans against Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu M. Karunanidhi at Bhuvaneshwari Circle.

All business establishments, including hotels, theatres and banks, remained closed. KSRTC buses, including inter-State buses, stayed off the roads, leaving people stranded at bus-stands. Schools and colleges declared a holiday owing to the bandh call.

Rural bus services were the worst affected and people were stranded at bus-stands. Government departments registered poor attendance most officials had to commute from Mysore. Government hospitals, medical shops and the vegetable market functioned as usual.
