National Election Watch list

Three MPs from BJP on the Election Watch list

"In Karnataka alone three BJP candidates have criminal cases against them. Ananth Kumar who will contest from Bangalore South constituency has cases slapped under 10 sections of the law. He is alleged to have caused hurt to extort property and also said to have rioted with deadly weapons.

Ananth Kumar Hegde, who is contesting from Uttar Kannada constituency, too has a case of promoting enmity between two religious groups. He is also said to have defiled a place of worship to insult a religion and disrupt harmony.

Prahlad Joshi, who is contesting from Dharwad constituency, has also been a part of rioting and wrongly restraining people. He is also alleged to have assaulted public servants to stop them from carrying out their duty. He is also said to have set properties on fire to cause damage to others

Good for us.  Waiting for the other parties' names on this.
