The Congress on Wednesday lodged a police complaint claiming that its workers were attacked during a door-to-door campaign in the Lakshmidevi Nagar ward in Rajarajeshwarinagar.
Bangalore Rural MP D K Suresh said ex-corporator Velu Nayakar, who was with the Congress, attacked party workers 'at the behest' of the BJP candidate Munirathna.
Congress workers even staged a protest outside the Nandini Layout police station demanding action.
'In Lakshmidevi Nagar ward, during the campaign, Velu Nayakar attacked our party workers at the behest of Munirathna. Our local leaders say the attack happened with police support,' Suresh, who is leading the Congress' campaign in Rajarajeshwarinagar, told reporters.
