Action to be taken against outfits that gave bandh call: Ramanath Rai

Mangaluru: Suitable action would be initiated against all organisations which gave bandh call in Dakshina Kannada district on Saturday violating Supreme Court directives, district-in-charge Minister B Ramanath Rai said.

“Organisations which gave illegal bandh call opposing the Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s visit to Dakshina Kannada district will be made accountable for all the loss and damages to properties during the bandh,” Rai told reporters here.

Those who owned responsibility for consequences by giving letters in writing would have to face action and even properties owned by such organisations would be seized to make up for the losses on the bandh day, Rai said. It was the responsibility of the Karnataka government to provide security to the visiting chief minister of Kerala and the state did an exemplary job, he said.

State transport department officials who did not facilitate buses operations on February 25 would also face disciplinary action, he added.
