Residents of Chalavadikeri blocked BJP leaders from entering their locality to create awareness about the Citizenship (Amendment) Act on Monday.

A few Muslims and those belonging to SC/ST communities formed a human chain when the leaders and the party workers reached there to distribute pamphlets. They asked the leaders to go back.

The situation was tense for about half an hour as members of the two sides had an argument. The BJP leaders departed after the police persuaded them not to enter inside.

“We aren’t against the BJP. We are living in harmony in our locality. We don’t want anybody to divide us,” H L Santosh, a resident of the locality, told DH.

The BJP leaders have decided to visit Chalavadikeri on Tuesday to distribute pamphlets about the CAA.
