Mysuru: Former MLA and Kannada Chaluvali Vatal Paksha leader Vatal Nagaraj and film producer and Kannada activist Sa Ra Govindu were detained for allegedly making a bid to block Mysuru-Bengaluru highway near Columbia Asia Hospital in the outskirts of the city on Sunday. 
Vatal Nagaraj had called a flash protest against the recent decision of the state government to form Maratha Development Authority. Besides, the government had  also announced grants for the authority, thus irking the activists who are vehemently opposing the decision. 
Vatal Nagaraj stated that “we have given a deadline till November 30 to the government take back the decision regarding the Authority. On the other hand, we have already called for Karnataka Bandh on December 5”, he added. 
Vatal also claimed that “we have been receiving a good response as nearly 1,500 various organisations including the app based cab aggregators and many more organisations have extended their support to the bandh. We will definitely observe bandh”, Vatal Nagaraj reaffirmed.
Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa is like a dictator. Karnataka didn’t see any such CM in the history. We will observe black day in Bengaluru on Monday, Vatal Nagaraj warned.
Vatal and Sa Ra Govindu who were accompanied by scores of activists were also detained and taken in a waiting police van.
