Yadgir (Karnataka): The bandh call given by Hindu organisations to protest against the recent `hate speech` by Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi evoked good response here on Saturday.
Shops and commercial establishments downed shutters and vehicles remained off the roads, police said.
Hindu outfits took out a procession demanding stern action against Owaisi.

They also submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner, to be handed over to President Pranab Mukherjee, demanding action against the MLA.

Some persons threw stones at a government office in which window panes and two vehicles were damaged, police said.

Several political parties have strongly condemned Owaisi`s remarks, accusing him of using inflammatory and derogatory language in his speech while addressing a public meeting (MIM Jalsa) at Nirmal town of Adilabad district in Andhra Pradesh last month.
