Bengaluru: Farmers in Karnataka dumped flowers on the roads in the main market in Bengaluru Monday as part of ‘Bharat Bandh’ in protest against the Centre’s three agrarian laws. Farmers in and around Bengaluru grow flowers as a crop and they brought truck loads of roses, marigold and other flowers and dumped them while shouting slogans against the Modi government.

The flower protest was part of agitation organised by pro-farmer organisations backed by a number of other social and political outfits. Many organisations staged protests in front of Town Hall in Bengaluru.

However, the response to the bandh was lukewarm. The Karnataka government had put in place elaborate security measures to ensure that there was no untoward incident or disturbance to daily activities. A few farmer organisations held ‘Rasta Roko’ on major national and state highways during the dawn to dusk bandh. But the police were able to evict them.
