Parking on roads in central Bengaluru will be restricted on Friday as two independent MLAs will take oath as ministers in the Karnataka cabinet later in the day.

According to Bengaluru Traffic Police, parking has been banned on the following roads:

Dr BR Ambedkar Road, from Balekundri Circle to KR Road on both sides; Raj Bhavan Road, from CTO Circle to Raj Bhavan junction; LH Road, from Raj Bhavan junction to Chalukya junction; Queen’s Road, from Balekundri Circle to Queen’s Circle; Palace Road, from Mysuru Bank Circle to Vasanthnagar underpass; Devaraja Urs Road, from Chalukya Circle to MS Building; Race Course Road, from Trilight junction to Chalukya Circle; Park House Road, from AGS Junction to CID Circle; interior roads of Cubbon Park; Millers Road, from LRDE Junction to Basaveshwara Circle; Infantry Road, from Ali Asker Road junction to traffic headquarters; Ali Asker Road, from Raj Bhavan junction to Ali Asker Cross; KG Road, from Police Corner to Mysuru Bank Circle; Old Post Office Road to Mysuru Bank Circle; Nrupatunga Road from KR Circle to Police Corner; Kasturba Road, from Hudson Circle to Queen’s Circle; Mallya Hospital Road, from Siddalingaiah Circle to RRMR Junction Road;

Cubbon Road, from CTO Circle to Manipal Centre; T Chowdaiah Road, from Old High Grounds Jn to Cauvery junction and Ramana Maharshi Road, from Cauvery Jn to Mehkri Circle.

Independent MLA H Nagesh and R Shankar of the Karnataka Pragnyavantha Janatha Party, will take oath as ministers at 1pm on Friday at Raj Bhavan.

“On Friday, Nagesh and Shankar will take oath and join the Cabinet. Shankar has agreed to merge his legislature party with ours,” Eshwar Khandre, senior Congress MLA and KPCC (Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee) working president said.

This will further cement the stability of the Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka with 119 members in the Assembly.

Incidentally, Shankar was part of the cabinet earlier as the Forest Minister but was dropped after a reshuffle. Following that, he had withdrawn his support from the government in the wake of a crisis when four MLAs led by former Minister and Gokak MLA Ramesh Jarkiholi started a rebellion against the party.
