Karnataka: Angry mob attacks ex-CM Yediyurappa’s house in Shivamogga


Former Karnataka chief minister and senior BJP leader B S Yediyurappa’s house has been attacked by an angry mob in Shivamogga district on Monday.

According to reports, a large number of protestors belonging to the Banjara community are not happy with the state government’s recent decision to provide internal reservations in Schedule Caste/Scheduled Tribe (SC/ST) community.

The decision was made on March 24 where a 6% internal quota for SC (Left), 5.5% for SC (Right), 4.5% for SC (touchable that includes the Banjara community) and 1% for others was recommended.

Many in the Banjara community feel that the decision would take away their SC status and hence demanded that the state government withdraw the decision with immediate effect.
