50 taken into custody for black flag demonstration against Gadkari

The BJP has chosen actress Hema Malini, who will file her nomination papers tomorrow, for the bypoll.

The by-election was necessitated to fill up the vacancy caused by the death of M Rajsekhara Murthy of JD-S.

Activists of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike staged the protest in front of Bengaluru International Airport when Gadkari arrived here to participate in a rally organised by BJP.
The rally is being held to mark the completion of 1000 days in office of the first BJP government in the South.

Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa had yesterday welcomed the BJP central leadership's decision to field her from the state, amid reports that ruling BJP's Karnataka unit was ignored in selecting Hema Malini to contest the by-poll.
