    Section 144 imposed around Mall of Asia in Bengaluru

    The mall will remain shut for 15 days

    The police say it is a precautionary measure

After activists of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike went on the rampage in Bengaluru a few days ago demanding that English signboards be removed and Kannada accommodated, the Bengaluru Police have imposed Section 144 around Mall of Asia in Byatarayanapura. They have also decided to shut down the mall for 15 days as a precautionary measure.

It might be recalled that a case too had been filed at the Kodigehalli police station in this regard.

Demand for Kannada signboards 

Things took a violent turn when aggressive activists of Kannada organisations decided to take law into their hands. As a result, they went on demolishing boards at will. Though at that point in time, the government remained silent, it ordered that FIRs be filed against the vandals, clearly understanding that the Brand Bengaluru image was taking a hit.

President of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Narayana Gowda, among others were also arrested and sent to Parappana Agrahara.

Now, chief minister Siddaramaiah has decided to promulgate an ordinance declaring that the signboards employ a 60-40 formula.

Several netizens had urged the government to take action against the members as they felt such hooliganism would not do any good anyone, irrespective of their intentions.
