The Bharatiya Janata Party Sunday hit out at the Congress for allegedly backing therioters and never its personal Pulakeshinagar MLA R Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy whose home was set on hearth by the rioters on August 11 evening.
“The Congress says that the innocent people are being arrested. Who is innocent? The man who is sitting next to me (Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy). He should get justice,” BJP state vice-president and Mahadevapura MLA Aravind Limbavali mentioned at a press convention at Murthy’s residence. Days after the incident, Limbavali visited Murthy’s home which was broken.
He was accompanied by BJP’s Bengaluru Central MP P C Mohan. He was referring to Congress state chief D Okay Shivakumar’s assertion on Saturday that the police have been serving notices to folks to terrorise them and forcing them to present a press release beneficial to them.
Limbavali alleged that the Congress leaders have demanded the discharge of harmless folks arrested in connectionwith the case. “By calling the rioters innocent and demanding theirrelease, what are you going to achieve? Instead of bothering about your vote bank, you should have spoken a few words infavour of your own MLA,” he opined.
Likening the riot with the stone pelters of Kashmir,the BJP chief alleged by no means ever within the historical past of Karnataka an incident like this has occurred the place an MLA’s home wasset on hearth.
