BJP creates ruckus in Karnataka Assembly on slogan issue, Congress rubbishes charge

Bengaluru, Feb 28 (UNI) The BJP on Wednesday created a ruckus in the Karnataka Assembly over its allegation that Congress Rajya Sabha MP Syed Nazir Hussain's supporters had raised chants of Pakistan Zindabad on the premises of the state legislature, even as Congress members rubbished the accusation.
Raising the issue in the House, Leader of the Opposition R Ashoka alleged that the chants were heard after Hussain was declared winner in the Rajya Sabha poll in Karnataka held on Tuesday.
"The incident of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ sloganeering has created an atmosphere of fear in the state… If they raise such a slogan here (at the Vidhana Soudha), they will raise slogans in all streets of the state," Ashoka said, as angry BJP members barged into the well of the House and protested, following which the assembly was adjourned.
