Bengaluru: Tamil Nadu will observe a bandh between 6 am and 6 pm on Tuesday to pressure the Karnataka government to release Cauvery water.
Though the bandh has been called in Cauvery delta districts, several political parties have backed the agitation and the shutdown is likely to be total in the neighbouring state.
An officer from the transport department said that KSRTC and private bus operators are likely to cancel the services on Tuesday as agitators might target these vehicles. “The KSRTC will run all the night buses on Monday. But a decision on running the services on Tuesday will be taken based on the feedback from our officers in Tamil Nadu,” he said.
Private bus operators too will wait and watch. “We will cancel the services if the Karnataka registration buses are attacked,” said Mr Ramesh Holla, a bus operator. Train services will run as usual on Tuesday.
