Congress supporters shout ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans

Belagavi, May 14, 2023 (PPI-OT): As the Congress demonstrated a “massive victory” against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Karnataka Assembly elections, some unidentified people shouted “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans outside a counting centre in Tilakwadi, Belagavi.

Indian media reports said those who shouted pro-Pakistan slogans were allegedly supporters of the grand old party. The incident happened at Tilakwadi police station where some “excited” supporters shouted “anti-India” slogans when Congress candidates secured victory against the saffron party.
