The Deputy Commissioner  was speaking at a  meeting convened at his office on January 8, Friday to  help various individuals and organisations  to put forth suggestions to ensure that there are no bundhs in the district.

Frequent bundhs would affect the district known to be an educational hub and has students from  various parts of the nation studying here, the DC said.

DK District in-charge Minister  B Ramanatha Rai who was also present appealed to the public and organisations not to resort to bundhs for any reason. Bundhs do not help in achieving anything, he added.

City Police Commissioner  Chandra Sekhar suggested that a place similar to the Freedom Park in Bengaluru be chosen in Mangaluru too in order to hold protests without causing inconvenience to others.

Jagadish Shenava, VHP District President said though his organisation was not in support of bundhs, it was forced to hold bundhs to ensure that its demands were not ignored.

United Muslim Organisation  President and former mayor Ashraf said so far no action has been taken against those giving calls for bundhs. "In  a more recent bundh, we have seen police themselves forcibly closing down shops," he alleged.

Social activist Vidya Dinker, Mangaluru Bar Association President S.P. Chengappa,  Yogish Shetty of Tulunadu Rakshana Vedike, Rahim Uchil of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike and  Vasanth Achari of CPI(M) also voiced their opinion.

Bundhs have to be banned because it harm the economy and the reputation of the place. In a single day there is so much loss as the whole business is not able to transact. But sometimes police act forcible in shuttering the shops present at the center

It not the public the protesters and the Government has to decide because people follow the bundhs for their personnel safety.
