Prime News, State, Bengaluru, February 14:- Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president B S Yeddyurappa, along with a BJP delegation, on Thursday, submitted a memorandum to the Governor, Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala against the stone pelting on the residence of BJP legislator, Preetham Gowda, in Hassan. He also added that they will send a memorandum to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
“We have submitted a memorandum to the Governor over the incident of stone-pelting at the residence of Preetham and manhandling of his family. We will also send a memorandum to Rajnath Singh,” said Yeddyurappa.
Yeddyurappa led a BJP delegation to meet the Governor on the incident that took place on Wednesday evening.
On Wednesday, Janata Dal (Secular) workers allegedly pelted stones at the residence of BJP MLA, after an audio recording, purportedly featuring Gowda went viral. One BJP worker got injured in the incident.
According to media reports, in the audio clip, Gowda, is allegedly heard commenting on the health of JD(S) supremo and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda. The BJP MLA claimed that the voice is not his. Reportedly, Preetham Gowda, in the clip, is telling a man named Santosh that Deve Gowda “would die soon” and Kumaraswamy “is unwell” and that JD(S) “will soon be history.”
Reacting on the issue, Kumaraswamy had said, “Mysuru IG and Hassan SP briefed me. As per information, some followers of Deve Gowda were holding a protest over statements made against him. Some BJP workers provoked them and the incident happened.”
“I have asked the police to probe the matter and take strict action,” he had asserted. (MR, Inputs: Agencies)
