Bengaluru: The call for a nationwide rail-roko campaign by the farmer-leaders in Delhi against the Centre’s farm laws evoked a mixed response in Karnataka on Thursday.

In Bengaluru, the protest was low-key but there was a good turnout of protesters in Raichur, Belagavi and Davangere. According to information received, the agitation took place in Yeshwanthpur Railway station in Bengaluru, Mysuru, Raichur, Belagavi, Vijayapura, Davangere, Hubballi-Dharwad, Koppal and Kolar.

The agitators tried in vain to storm into the railway station to stop the trains. In Raichur, Belagavi and Davangere, protesters were arrested, sources said. In Bengaluru, the agitation was led by farmer-leader Kuruburu Shanthakumar but there was no great impact.
