BJP leaders fast in Karnataka against Parliament disruption
Bengaluru, April 12 (IANS) BJP's central ministers and its Karnataka leaders are observing a day-long fast on Thursday in cities across the state to protest the disruption of Parliament's budget session by opposition parties.

Javadekar, along with union ministers from the state Ananth Kumar (Parliamentary Affairs), D.V. Sadananda Gowda (Statistics and Programme Implementation) and other BJP workers staged a protest at Maurya Circle in the city centre.

BJP President Amit Shah, who is on a two-day visit to poll-bound Karnataka, held the protest before the Deputy Commissioner's office in Dharwad in the state's northwestern region.
Shah was joined by the party's state unit chief B.S. Yeddyurappa, MPs Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Pralhad Joshi and the party's state leader Jagadish Shettar among others.
The fast comes after the Congress, led by President Rahul Gandhi, observed a day-long fast on April 9 in Delhi against atrocities on Dalits and others.
