Shobha Karandlaje, BJP MP from Udupi Chikmagalur, has claimed that the Kerala government is only interested in vote bank politics and is not concerned with those who indulge themselves in anti-national activities. Her remarks came after a case was registered against her for allegedly passing misinformation.
Hail Kerala Govt!— Shobha Karandlaje (@ShobhaBJP) January 24, 2020
Instead of acting against the discrimination happened to the dalit families of Cherukunnu, they lodged a case against me!
High time for entire society to unite against these pressurising tactics of non-performing, biased left govt.@TimesNow @BJP4Keralam
Speaking to news agency ANI, she said, "Unfortunately they (Kerala govt) have booked case against me. They don't look at people who do anti-national and anti-social activities. They only think of vote bank."
The Vice President of the Karnataka unit of BJP is caught in the middle of a controversy after a police case was filed for a tweet. Malappuram DP Chief Abdul Kareem confirmed that a case was filed against her for spreading misinformation and misleading public under Article 153(a), IPC 120 of Section 34 IPC.
The complaint was filed against her after she tweeted that a certain section of Hindus was denied water since they supported the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Malappuram. After the case was filed against her, she said that she had received information from a source and that she was not spreading fake information.
