Splitting hairs: BJP offers scissors, Madhu Bangarappa fires back

Splitting hairs: BJP offers scissors, Madhu Bangarappa fires back

Bengaluru, May 29 (UNI) Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister, Madhu Bangarappa, is facing criticism from BJP members for his hairstyle reminiscent of cricketer MS Dhoni's, sparking a heated debate.
The BJP has voiced disapproval of Bangarappa's long, unkempt hair, with some even offering to sponsor his haircuts. This controversy arises following earlier ridicule directed at Bangarappa for admitting his difficulty in reading Kannada fluently.
Tensions escalated when Bangarappa's brother, BJP's Kumar Bangarappa, questioned his educational credentials, challenging his claim of being a graduate. BJP State President Vijayendra Yediyurappa commented on Bangarappa's appearance, emphasising the importance of presenting oneself neatly, especially for someone in charge of the education sector.
