Attack on Congress leader in Bellary rural results in injury

Bellary

A clash between BJP and Congress workers during polling in the Bellary rural constituency in Karnataka on Wednesday resulted in injuries to a local leader who had recently switched from BJP to Congress.

During polling in the Bellary rural constituency in Karnataka on Wednesday, Umesh Yadav, a local leader who had recently joined Congress after leaving BJP, sustained head injuries in a clash between workers of the two parties. The police arrived at the scene and dispersed the violent mob. Another incident was reported at booths 159 and 160 in the Gangavati central constituency, where BJP workers allegedly clashed with workers of the Karnataka Rajya Pragathi Paksha Party (KRPP).

In the ongoing Karnataka Assembly polls, Gali Janardhan Reddy, the mining baron of Bellary, has formed his own political party, the Karnataka Rajya Pragathi Paksha Party (KRPP), and is contesting from the Gangavati assembly seat. Minor clashes have been reported in the area over the past few days, possibly due to the KRPP’s potential to draw votes away from the BJP.

The vote counting for the Karnataka Assembly polls is set to take place on May 13.
