Following the lowering of the “Hanuman flag” at Keragodu village, Mandya district, Karnataka, the situation has become more tense. The village now has a large police presence. Workers from Bajrang Dal, Janata Dal Secular, and Bharatiya Janata Party have voiced their disapproval.
On Sunday, the Hanuman flag was taken down by the authorities from the 108-foot-tall pillar. In its place was erected the national flag. Regarding this occurrence, the opposition is occupied with cornering the state government.
The residents of Keragodu village staged a protest on Sunday when the officials arrived and began taking the flag. On the location, police were also called. Upon the officers’ attempts to persuade the locals, they lost their cool and began to cause trouble. The police were then forced to use lathi charges.
By making a commotion, the infuriated citizens vented their resentment of the Congress administration and Congress MLA from Mandya Ganiga Ravikumar. There were also protests against the Siddaramaiah government using slogans. The police were then forced to use lathi charges.
Keragodu residents and those of the twelve neighboring villages have raised funds and had a flagpole erected next to the Rangamandir. Workers from the BJP and JD (S) were also actively involved in its founding.
