Watch: Congress, JD(S), SDPI workers detained as protests rage in Karnataka

Congress, JD(S) and SDPI workers joined farm groups to protest against the farm bills, the land reforms, amendments to APMCs & labour laws.

Farmer groups had given a statewide shutdown call over the issues.

Protesters in Hubli were seen stopping buses as part of their protest.

SDPI, Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha, JD(S), Karnataka Rakshana Vedike joined the stir by forming a human chain at the Ashoka Circle in Shivamogga.

Some protesters were also detained by the police in Madikeri during their demonstration against the state & the central government.

Apart from the centre’s farm bills, the demonstrations were against two important amendments to the Karnataka Land Reforms Act and the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee Act passed by the Karnataka Assembly.

The protesters alleged that these laws will ruin the agriculture sector as people with moneybags will purchase agricultural land to convert their black money into white and turn agriculture land into real estate business.

Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa had appealed to the protestors not to create unnecessary confusion over the amendments.
