Bengaluru: The Kannada Development Authority on Tuesday issued notice to the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) asking for an explanation at whose behest they are following a three-language policy.

"Is there any order on this? Give us a clarification on this if no government has asked you to do it, what powers do officials have to take a policy decision on a three language policy?" read the notice.

There has been no response to the notice issued last week.

"I have asked officials to check out what is the policy followed in Kerala and West Bengal and other places. After that we will take a decision," said CM Siddaramaiah

The city woke up on Monday to find Bengaluru Metro signboards with Hindi letters on them vandalised. Hindi letters on the boards of Chickpete and Majestic stations were covered with paper and taped carefully.

These metro boards were in Kannada, English and Hindi but only the parts with Hindi were covered.
