The police should act in haste and publicise effectively that the city is now safe. If this is not done immediately, the FDI's coming in to the state, the current booming businesses will feel insecure for sure. Bengaluru has created an important place in the world map. Our country looks at Bengaluru with pride and respect.

With this sort of importance & publicity bestowed upon Bengaluru, we need to cash in on that and get our voices heard all over the world about our stance on elevating Kannada, Kannadiga & Karunaadu.
