Mysore/Mysuru: Strongly condemning the amendments to Karnataka Land Reforms Act, farmers under the banner of Karnataka Rajya Raitha Virodhi Kaide Horata Samithi, staged a demonstration in front of the Regional Commissioner’s office here on Monday.

Earlier, the farmers took out a bike rally from the Samithi office located near Gun House on Nanjangud road to the Regional Commissioner’s office, passing through Basaveshwara Circle, Sayyaji Rao road, K.R.Circle, D.Devaraj Urs road, JLB road, Metropole Circle and Hunsur road.
