The ‘Go Back’ campaign against Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP and Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Shobha Karandlaje, has escalated as BJP workers in Chikkamagaluru voiced their objections to her candidature during a recent party gathering. The discontent among party workers regarding Karandlaje’s nomination has been brewing for some time, with the campaign initially manifesting through postcard campaigns and social media activism.

‘Go Back’ Campaign

However, tensions reached a new height during an election-related meeting held at the BJP office in Chikkamagaluru, attended by MLA Araga Jnanendra and BJP leader Bhanu Prakash. Amidst the discussions, several party workers took the opportunity to express their dissatisfaction with Karandlaje’s candidacy. Their primary contention stemmed from Karandlaje’s alleged lack of rapport with the block committee leaders of the party despite representing the constituency for the past decade.

The dissenting workers were vocal about their opposition, emphasizing the need for the ticket to be allocated to a candidate from Chikkamagaluru. They questioned the legitimacy of Karandlaje’s candidacy, particularly in light of recent statements made by B S Yediyurappa, a member of the BJP Parliamentary Board, suggesting her victory by a significant margin. This led to speculations regarding Karandlaje’s status as the official candidate, fueling further discontent among the party ranks.

Efforts by BJP district president Devaraj Shetty and other party officials to pacify the agitated workers proved futile, as they resorted to staging a dharna at the party office. The situation took a different turn with the arrival of former MLA C T Ravi, who appealed to the protesting workers to prioritize the party’s interests above individual grievances.

Ravi urged the agitating workers to consider the larger national interest and focus on ensuring Prime Minister Modi’s re-election. He emphasized the importance of unity within the party and cautioned against actions that could inadvertently benefit opposition parties. Ravi’s plea underscored the need for solidarity among BJP workers, urging them to collaborate with JD(S) counterparts and strive for a comprehensive victory across all constituencies in Karnataka.

The intensification of the ‘Go Back’ campaign against Shobha Karandlaje reflects the internal discord within the BJP ranks, highlighting the complexities surrounding candidate selection and party unity. As the dissent continues to simmer, the forthcoming developments in Chikkamagaluru’s political landscape remain uncertain, with implications extending beyond the constituency’s borders.

Chikkamagaluru: The discovery of over 50 empty cartridges in a reserve forest area of Karnataka has caused concern among locals and conservationists. The Saragodu-Tatkola reserve forest area of Mudigere taluk in Chikkamagaluru district is known for its biodiversity and serves as an important habitat for many endangered species.

According to police sources, the cartridges were found on the Kannagadde link road side of the reserve forest area. Forest officials immediately rushed to the spot and seized the cartridges. The police have registered a case and are investigating the matter, monitoring vehicles plying on the road.

Deputy Conservator of Forest NE Kranti spoke to the media about the discovery, saying, “More than 50 empty cartridges were found on the roadside. A complaint has been lodged with the police and they are investigating.”

The reserve forest area is home to many endangered species, including tigers, leopards, and elephants, and any disturbance to their habitat can have serious consequences for their survival.

It is important for locals and visitors to the area to respect the laws and regulations in place to protect the reserve forest and its wildlife.
