The arrest of actress Ragini Dwivedi in connection with the Bengaluru Drug racket may put the BJP government into defence mode as the actress was not only the star campaigner for KR Pete candidate Narayana Gowda but also was welcomed with aarti along with CM BS Yediyurappa's son BY Vijayendra last year during Karnataka by-polls.
The Karnataka BJP unit may be under severe criticism and opposition might use this as an opportunity to point fingers after pictures and videos of Karnataka CM's son BY Vijayendra along with now arrested actress Ragini Dwivedi has gone viral.
The two had arrived in KR Pete last year to campaign for the BJP during by-elections and Ragini went on a door-to-door campaign on behalf of BJP candidate Narayana Gowda.
Videos and pictures of the same have stormed Twitter and other social media platforms and may put the government on the defensive.
The opposition, especially former CM HD Kumaraswamy who fired the opening salvo stating the BJP toppled his government with “cricket betting and drug trade money” may use the same to corner CM BS Yediyurappa and other BJP leaders.
Meanwhile, memes have also started to float attracting criticism of the BJP.
CCB police raided her house on Friday morning after she failed to appear before the sleuths on Thursday. The police, after 6 hours of grilling in connection with the drug consumption and circulation case, arrested her at 6:30pm and sent her government to a remand home.
As soon as the news of the arrest was out, so did her images and pictures with the BJP leader emerge to set social media on fire.
