As part of his two-day ‘carpet bombing’ campaign on Apr. 29 and Apr. 30 in North Karnataka, Old Mysuru and Mysuru regions, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a road show on the evening of Apr. 29 from Magadi Road till the Sumanahalli Junction via NICE Road. The Bengaluru Rural District Police have diverted traffic and have made arrangements for vehicle movement on alternative roads.
On Apr. 30, the PM will visit Channapatna and as a result, the Mysuru-Bengaluru Expressway will be closed for traffic from 11 am to 4 pm on that day. The PM will address a rally at Mathikere-Shettihalli where thousands of people are participating.
According to a notification issued by Mandya Deputy Commissioner H.N. Gopalakrishna, all vehicles moving from Mysuru via Maddur towards Bengaluru have been diverted via Hemmanahalli Gate (near Hotel Adigas) to proceed towards Kestur-Huliyur Gate and join the Mangaluru National Highway.
Vehicles travelling from Mysuru to Bengaluru via Mandya have to take the Bannur – Kirugavalu – Malavalli – Halagur – Kanakapura route. Vehicles travelling from Kollegal and Malavalli towards Bengaluru have been asked to take the Malavalli – Halagur – Kanakapura route.
