Statewide shutdown strike scheduled in Karnataka on December 5; disruption likely

TIMEFRAME expected from 12/1/2020, 12:00 AM until 12/5/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Kolkata). COUNTRY/REGION Karnataka state


A shutdown strike is scheduled to take place in Karnataka on Saturday, December 5. The strike has been organized by several pro-Kannada groups and is being held to denounce the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s decision to open a fund to assist Maratha communities in the state. Participants of the strike allegedly believe that the fund will promote non-Kannada language and culture. In addition to the strike, a related march is scheduled to take place from the Town Hall to Freedom Park in Bengaluru.

A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are likely in the vicinity and the surrounding area of the event.


Those in Karnataka are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
