Mysuru: Tension prevailed for sometime as two groups made a bid to name Mahtrumandali circle in V V Mohalla after Dr B R Ambedkar and poet laureate Kuvempu.

On Wednesday evening two groups argued with each other, forcing the V V Puram police to block the Tempe Road and Kalidasa Road to avoid further chaos.

One group strongly demanded to establish Mathrumandali circle as Dr BR Ambedkar Circle, while another group tried to place a flex of Kuvempu in the middle of Mathrumandali circle and celebrate the day as it was the poet’s birth anniversary.

However the police stopped Kuvempu’s followers considering the dispute.

DCP (Law and Order) Pradeep Gunti visited the spot and resolved the issue by dispersing both the groups.

However, as a precautionary measure police security is tightened at Mathrumandali circle.

It may be mentioned that recently a section of residents of Paduvarahalli made a bid to install a bust of Dr B R Ambedkar at the circle allegedly illegally, triggering flash protest.
