Explosion near BJP office in Bangalore, 16 hurt

Sixteen people were injured, two of them seriously, in an explosion in a congested locality near the office of Karnataka's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)

New Delhi: The explosion near Karnataka's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) office will help the party in next month's assembly elections, Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad said Wednesday.

"If the blast near BJP's office in Banglore is a terror attack, it will certainly help the BJP politically on the eve of election," Ahmad said on Twitter. The election will be held May 5.

His remarks were criticised by the BJP as unwarranted and uncalled for.

"Such remarks are uncalled for and should not have come from a senior Congress leader. The party (Congress) has already accepted defeat in Karnataka," said BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi.

Sixteen people were injured, two of them seriously, in the explosion in crowded residential locality of Malleshwaram in north Bangalore.

 

The Congress party however distanced itselg from Shakeel Ahmad's remarks.

 

"Any terror incident is a matter of concern... it is a national and international problem... it is a challenge for the country... it should not be seen as political gain," Dwivedi told reporters after the blast in Bangalore, in which 16 people were injured.

The Congress distanced itself from Shakeel Ahmad's tweet, saying the party had nothing to do with it and it was his personal view.

"I have not seen his tweet. What he said is his personal view and the party has nothing to do with it," added Minister of State for Home R.P.N. Singh.
