Deve Gowda faced the ire of the BJP

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers across Karnataka hit the streets on Monday to protest Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) chief HD Deve Gowda’s use of invectives against Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa. Protesters garlanded the former prime minister’s portraits with shoes and burnt his effigies.

The political mudslinging over the NICE project plunged to an unprecedented low with former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda calling Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa and state Advocate General Ashok Harnahalli ‘bastards’ on Sunday.

Gowda’s angry outburst came when he accused the CM and the Advocate General of conniving with the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise Ltd (NICE), which he alleged had grabbed land from farmers for the Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project.
