BENGALURU: A Congress leader on Monday threw petrol inside the premises of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) office and threatened to set it on fire.
According to reports, Narayanaswamy, a close aid of Congress MLA Byrati Basavaraj, took the grave step after a fake document which he submitted was rejected by an official.
The video posted by local channels show Narayanaswamy splashing petrol from a bottle in the BBMP office at Bengaluru’s Horamavu.
The official had reportedly refused to provide a fake land document as per his demands.
Narayanawamy is also the block president of KR Puram in Bengaluru.
Basavaraj is said to be a close aid of Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
Meanwhile, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee chief tweeted:
I have instructed our Bengaluru District North District Congress Committee (DCC) to immediately suspend Narayanswamy.— Dr. G Parameshwara (@DrParameshwara) February 20, 2018
