HUBLI, MARCH 11. An indefinite "lay siege to the Vidhana Soudha" agitation will be launched by the State Government daily wage employees, regularised employees, and honorary and rural employees from March 21. In a statement here, K.S.

As there has been no response from the Chief Minister, the federation has decided to go ahead with its programme.
