Mysuru: “Mysuru Hotel Owners’ Association will not support the all-India bandh against the farm laws on Monday September 27,” said Association President C. Narayana Gowda here on Saturday September 25.
In a media release, he stated that, “Farmers are the backbone of the country. We buy vegetables, fruits and milk from farmers. Four months’ curfew during the first wave and three months’ curfew during the second wave of the Corona virus pandemic, we went through enough problems. The hotel industry has taken the beating. We are yet to recover from the losses. We have employed around 25,000 workers.”
He further said, “The hotel industry comes under essential services. We are trying to recover the losses incurred during the lockdown period. Given this scenario, I don’t think we can support the bandh call. Our working President Chandrashekar Hebbar and other office members were of the opinion that this is not the right time to support the bandh.
