Bangalore, Dec 6: Farmers and local Kannada outfits have planned to 'gherao' the Krishnarajasagar (KRS) dam today as district authorities ordered closure of all schools and colleges in Mandya district in view of tension over Supreme Court's order to Karnataka to release water to Tamil Nadu.



Protests erupted across Mandya district Wednesday evening.

The Bangalore-Mysore highway was blocked in Mandya, Gejjalagere and Srirangapatna in protest against the release of water.
