Bengaluru: While several Kannada organisations have called for a statewide bandh on Friday and the anger over the Supreme Court verdict on Cauvery favouring Tamil Nadu spread, bus services between the two states took a hit on Tuesday with a Karnataka State Transport Corporation bus set on fire at Salem in Tamil Nadu.

KSRTC cancelled 700 buses to Mysuru, Mandya, Ooty and several parts of Tamil Nadu. Many parts of Karnataka, especially near the KRS Dam in Mandya and Bengaluru erupted with protests affecting normal life. Flash protests by Kannada outfits were seen in Marathahalli, Hosur Road and Mysuru Road affecting the traffic flow to two major IT corridors and between Mysuru and Bengaluru.
