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.
