Karnataka: JDS workers pelt stones at BJP workers in Hassan, BJP leader injured

The grave incident took place when a group of JD(S) party workers, who were protesting against the Hassan BJP MLA Preetham Gowda at his residence, resorted to stone pelting towards the BJP leaders and other party workers present at the spot.

In a shocking incident, party workers of Karnataka CM Kumaraswamy’s Janata Dal (Secular) have resorted to a deadly stone pelting against a BJP leader in Hassan district of Karnataka causing serious head injuries.

The grave incident took place when a group of JD(S) party workers, who were protesting against the Hassan BJP MLA Preetham Gowda at his residence, resorted to stone pelting towards the BJP leaders and other party workers present at the spot, seriously injuring Rahul Kini, state executive committee member of BJP Yuva Morcha.

Previously, an unauthenticated audio tape allegedly featuring MLA Preetham Gowda had gone viral, in which a person claiming to be Preetham Gowda had criticised former Prime Minister HD Devegowda leading to the violent protests against the BJP leaders in the Hassan.

The injured BJP leader has suffered a life-threatening blow on his head and has been admitted in the Chamarajendra District Hospital, Hassan.

Meanwhile, former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has expressed shock against the vandalism of the Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy led JD(S) workers and held him responsible for the attack on the BJP leader in Hassan. He further added that the senior party leaders will be heading to the Hassan to hold a protest march in the next couple of days. The BJP is also mulling to declare a district bandh in Hassan to protest against the incident tomorrow.

Preetham Gowda, a first time MLA had created history after he had defeated JDS in its fortress, Hassan. The BJP’s inroads into the JDS bastion had unnerved former Prime Minister HD Devegowda and his son HD Revanna, the de-facto head of the JDS.
