BENGALURU: Despite the bandh call given by various organisations continuing on Wednesday, schools and colleges in the city are expected to stay open.

Deputy Commissioner of Bengaluru Urban district B M Vijay Shankar said, “There is no official holiday declared from the government and schools and colleges will function.”

However, private schools and colleges that have declared holiday following the bandh call have decided to work on the next two Saturdays to compensate for the days lost. A majority of schools have declared two days’ holiday as a precautionary measure.
