Great, so today was again a bandh. Life came to a standstill across Karnataka (including Bangalore)
Thanks to this Bandh, we achieved the following:
- Karunanidhi said that Tamil Nadu will be happy with just 215 TMC ft of Kaveri water, and Karnataka can have 465 TMC ft as it had desired.
- Union Water Resources Minister Saifuddin Soz said that his earlier statment that Cauvery verdict will be implemented was taken out of context and clarified that this was never his stand.
- Productivity of all the industries in Karnataka sky rocketed.
- The average citizen (or clueless guys like me) became more sympathetic to the cause.
If we did not achieve any of the above by having yet another bandh, will someone enlighten me on what was the whole point of having this forced shutdown?
Btw, Is Bangalore City turning into a Bandh City?
