BENGALURU: Karnataka Rakshana Vedike state president Narayana Gowda and others were taken into preventive custody during a protest in front the KPCC office on Queen’s Road on Tuesday. The High Grounds police released them later.

At 11.30 am, at least 200 activists tried to barge into the premises shouting slogans against the party. They were condemning the Congress for publishing its BBMP election manifesto in Tamil, Telugu and Urdu, which they said was to attract voters of communities which speak those languages. Congress has also published its manifesto in Kannada and English. 

Narayana Gowda told Express that Congress was using cheap gimmicks to lure voters. Calling Congress leaders “hypocrites,” he said they deliver public speeches in Kannada but had insulted Kannadigas by publishing the manifesto in other languages. “We condemn their pseudo attitude and urge them to take back their manifesto in other languages.”
