The BJP had organised a rally and a public meeting outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office where they set a deadline for Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to act on its three main demands before the State Legislature meets for the winter session at the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha in Belgaum. Namely announcement of State Advised Price (SAP) for sugarcane for the current crushing season, release of Rs. 1,800 crore due to various co-operative banks on account of the waiver of crop loans, and dropping of Minister of State for Infrastructure Santosh Lad.
Later in the evening it was learnt that the DC has issued a notice to the organisers of the public meeting of Bharatiya Janata Party in front of his office within the D.C. Compound without obtaining necessary permission and also prolonging the event for longer time.
However, BJP district president Eranna Kadadi denied that the event was organised without permission and also about the receipt of the notice.
