Bengaluru, May 8: Karnataka Police has summoned BJP National President JP Nadda and party member Amit Malviya to appear at Bengaluru’s High Grounds police station over a tweet by BJP Karnataka, accused of targeting the SC/ST community.

The summons, issued for their appearance within seven days, is part of an ongoing investigation. This follows the police instructing social media platform X to remove an animated video shared by the BJP state unit. The video allegedly discouraged SC and ST members from voting for a particular candidate.

This led the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) to request the Election Commission to take action against JP Nadda and other BJP leaders for allegedly violating the model code of conduct.

The Congress complaint to the Karnataka Chief Electoral Officer states that the video was posted on social media by the official account of Karnataka State Bharatiya Janata Party, managed by Amit Malviya, on May 4.

The Congress denies the BJP’s claims that their manifesto proposes diverting funds from SC, ST, and OBC communities to the Muslim community, accusing the BJP of spreading false information during the Lok Sabha elections to secure votes.
