Congress leaders agree to postpone Mekedatu padayatra headed for Bengaluru
Last Updated : 13 Jan 2022 02:31:07 PM IST


The Karnataka Congress on Thursday decided to postpone its 10-day Mekedatu padayatra (foot march), a day after the state government, pulled up by the high court, ordered an immediate ban on the opposition party's protest march which was taking place despite a massive surge in the state's daily Covid-19 cases.

Congress leader Siddaramaiah has said that they are concerned about the health of people in Karnataka. He added that it was their responsibility to ensure that the padayatra did not lead to more cases. He confirmed that the padayatra would resume once the third wave is over.
At the meeting, some senior leaders suggested dropping the padayatra as the court was observing their actions and they would be held responsible if there's a spread of Covid-19 infections in the district. They added that the padayatra was going against the sentiment of the people.
Few leaders were of the opinion to dare the government and walk at least till the border of Bangalore.
Earlier today, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) canceled the permission given to the Congress party to conduct a rally at the National College grounds.
BBMP had given permission to the Congress for the Mekedatu padayatra final day rally on January 19.
