Published on : Saturday, December 5, 2020

In Mysuru, the Karnataka bandh called by different Kannada organizations is anticipated to get a very poor response, as maximum organizations related to hospitality and business have taken the decision of not participating in the bandh, actively.

A part of the stakeholders, including Travellers and Hotel Owners’ Association have taken the decision of not closing their businesses on December 5th for the Karnataka Bandh called against the state government for establishment of Maratha Development Authority (MDA). The representatives of over ten organizations have taken the decision to shun the bandh as their life is slowly returning to normalcy from Covid-19.

To quote Mysuru Travel Association president B S Prashanth, “We are not ready to close business as we have incurred a huge loss due to Covid induced lockdown. As we have started recovering, it is highly difficult to close business. Meanwhile, we are not against the organisations. We will express our protest by wearing a black band.”

To quote Mysuru Hotel Owners’ Association president C Narayanagowda, “Hotel business is one among the others which was severely affected due to Covid-19. Hundreds of people depend on hotels for their livelihood.”

To quote S. J. Ashok of Tourist Guides Association, “The tourism sector is slowly returning to normalcy and the bandh will have adverse affect on tourism industry.”
