Protests at literary meet

Staff Correspondent

Hiriyur (Chitradurga district): Protests, disturbances and chaotic scenes marked the inauguration of the 10th District Kannada Sahitya Sammelan here on Wednesday. The programme witnessed a protest soon after the arrival of former Minister and Hiriyur MLA D. Sudhakar. As if waiting for his arrival, some persons reportedly belonging to the BJP, climbed up the podium to protest his arrival. Caught off-guard by this sudden action, the police rushed to the stage to clear the mob. Taking charge of the situation, the police immediately whisked away the protesters. Meanwhile, there was a scuffle between the protesters and the supporters of Mr. Sudhakar. Political rivalry is believed to be the reason behind the act.
