FIR Filed Against BJP Leaders Shobha Karandlaje, Tejashwi Surya, and PC Mohan Following Election Commission’s Directive

Following a directive from the Election Commission (EC), BJP leaders including Union Minister Shobha Karandlaje, Tejashwi Surya, and PC Mohan have found themselves embroiled in legal trouble. The EC instructed the Karnataka chief electoral officer to promptly address the DMK’s complaint regarding alleged violations of the model code of conduct.

FIR Filed Against BJP Leaders Shobha Karandlaje


An FIR has been lodged by the Halasuru Gate police, invoking sections 143, 149, 188, 283, 290, and 268 against the aforementioned BJP leaders and 41 others concerning the Nagarathpet incident. This incident stemmed from a protest led by BJP MP Tejasvi Surya and other party workers following an altercation where a shopkeeper was assaulted for purportedly playing devotional songs.

Additionally, Shobha Karandlaje faced legal action in Tamil Nadu, with the Madurai Police booking her for “promoting enmity” between different groups due to her controversial remarks.

In response, Karnataka Minister and Congress leader Priyank Kharge criticized the BJP leaders for habitually making baseless allegations and exacerbating societal divisions. He asserted that the FIR was warranted due to their incendiary speeches, particularly highlighting the Union Minister’s role in fostering animosity between states.

Kharge emphasized discrepancies in the narrative surrounding the Bengaluru incident, citing the shopkeeper’s statement indicating the music played was not specifically devotional. He also pointed to videos suggesting misrepresentation by Bengaluru South MP Tejasvi Surya regarding the nature of the music. Furthermore, BJP MLA Uday Garudachar purportedly acknowledged the incident as a personal dispute.

The Election Commission directed swift action against Karandlaje and requested a compliance report within 48 hours.
