Karna BJP president asked to appear before court in bandh call case
Bangalore: A local court on Wednesday issued summons
to BJP state unit President K S Eshwarappa to appear before it
on May 28 in connection with a call he gave for a state-wide
bandh on January 22.
Hearing a private complaint filed by advocate Dharmapal
Gowda, the Seventh Additional chief metropolitan Magistrate
Jayashankar directed Eshwarappa to appear before it on May 28,
failing which warrants would be issued.
The court had earlier asked Eshwarappa to appear before it
today, but the BJP leader failed to do so.
The BJP leader was reportedly in Puttaparthi to offer his
last respects to Sai Baba.
Eshwarappa had issued a bandh call after Karnataka
Governor H R Bhardwaj granted sanction to prosecute Chief
Minister B S Yeddyurappa over alleged denotification of lands.
