1 min read

Mysuru: Following the skirmishes at Varuna constituency allegedly involving BJP and Congress workers, at Siddaramanahimundi, Mysuru District Congress Committee has called it as a BJP doing.

President of Mysuru District Congress Rural Committee Dr B J Vijaykumar has stated that “When the campaign vehicle of BJP candidate V Somanna and Mysuru- Kodagu MP Prathap Simha was passing through Ranganathapura Gate towards Siddaramanahundi, dalit youths of Ranganathapura raised slogans in favour of Siddaramaiah. The BJP workers in campaign vehicle resorted to assault dalit youths, which was fiercely opposed by the latter. This led to skirmishes. But there was no incident of stone pelting and none from Siddaramaiah’s family were aware of the incident. The distance between Ranganathapura Gate and Siddaramaiah’s  residence is far and it is unfair to blame their family members for the incident.”

Somanna is facing a barrage of questions in every villages, while on campaign, by youths in groups in Varuna constituency. The supporters of former chief minister B S Yediyurappa and his son B Y Vijayendra are also unhappy with Somanna. The allegations of assault on BJP workers, is their own doing, Vijaykumar has stated.
