Attack on workers: BJP to hold statewide protests

The BJP has threatened to hold statewide protests if those involved "in gate-crashing into party office and attacking" party functionaries in Koppa in Chikkamagalur district are not arrested. The BJP has blamed Congress workers for the attack on Saturday.

In a press statement on Sunday, BJP state general secretary Shobha Karandlaje said that with Assembly polls fast approaching the Congress has started to resort to "goondagiri in order to browbeat the BJP".

Following the incident, Sringeri BJP MLA DN Jeevaraj and party workers are staging protest demonstration in Koppa. This protest will continue till the culprits involved in this violence are arrested, she stated.

"The reluctance on the part of the police to nab the miscreants is a proof that the culprits and anti-social elements are getting protection from the government," Karandlaje claimed.
