Estimated loss of around Rs 4,000 crore during two bandhs
Bengaluru industrialists have estimated a loss of around Rs 4,000 crore during the two bandhs in a week. They say that this could cause the economy that has just recovered from the pandemic to collapse. Therefore, instead of bandh, permission for protest should be given.

Although there is a decision of the Supreme Court, but we will not harass them, let them call the bandh.
