Karnataka: Congress MLA’s workers ransack Rani Channamma University for not ‘inviting’ him

Karnataka Congress workers allegedly went on a rampage and ransacked Karnataka’s Rani Channamma University because their leader and MLA Satish Jarkiholi was not invited to the blood donation camp organised by the varsity. A voluntary blood donation camp was organised at the university auditorium when Jarkiholi’s supporters barged in and got into a heated argument with the university authorities, disrupting the blood donation camp.

The Congress workers even allegedly assaulted the vice chancellor of the university for ‘ignoring’ their leaders and slapped him and ransacked his office. They were upset that some BJP leaders were invited for some previous functions but the Congress MLA wasn’t invited for foundation laying of an underpass held a few days back. After allegedly slapping and assaulting the VC, the group then went about breaking windows and damaging interiors.

According to The New Indian Express, the VC went inside his cabin in a bid to escape the mob and has switched off his mobile phone and has been inaccessible to the media. The police reached the spot but by then the goons had fled. According to Times Now, the police has neither filed an FIR nor suo moto cognisance has been taken regarding the incident. It is believed that beause of the political clout, the police is hesitant to take action against them.
