JD(S) will support Bharat Bandh: HD Deve Gowda

Hassan: HD Deve Gowda said that JD(S) will be supporting the Bharat Bandh called by the Congress party on Monday.

He said that, he will support the bandh but will not be participating in any event as he will be meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, he said.

Gowda said, he and Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, accompanied by some MPs of the BJP and Congress, will be meeting Mr Modi to impress upon him the need to allot more funds for rehabilitation work in flood-affected areas particularly Kodagu district. “Those who are not part of the delegation to New Delhi, will be taking part in the bandh,” he stated. 

Regarding the bandh, he said that constant hikes in fuel prices have burdened the common man and have adversely affected trade and commerce in the country. “The hikes are too much for the common man to bear,” he added.
