MYSURU: MP Shobha Karandlaje has alleged that election and police officials who are supposed to keep a vigil and check distribution of liquor and money  have turned mute spectators.
Speaking after submitting a memorandum to Election officer D Randeep to check election irregularities, she alleged Congress leaders led by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah are involved in anti-democratic activities in both Nanjangud and Gundlupet constituencies.

She said police are going by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s words and not by Deputy Commissioner D Randeep’s directions. She accused the police of harassing BJP leaders and workers.
In the wake of former minister M Mahadev’s family extending support to the BJP, the election officers raided Mahadeva’s farmhouse.

She demanded that the Chief Minister clarify what the police officials receive and how many bottles were seized from the farm. Shobha said police had seized a mobile publicity van around 9.30 pm when the Election Commission permitted campaign rounds till 10 pm.
Shobha charged sector officer Mahesh and head constable Krishna with misbehaving with Zilla Panchayat member Managala Somashekar while she was standing on the roadside.
Alleging that the BJP workers have found Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi distributing money in a choultry, she said election officer Jagadesh and Police Commissioner Subramaneshwara Rao failed to take action and act against those involved in illegal acts.
