Amid the vote counting underway in Karnataka, a snake entered the BJP camp office premises in Shiggaon, spreading chaos among the people present there, NDTV reported.
According to the report in NDTV, the occurred at the Shiggaon Constituency, where Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai is running for re-election for the fourth time straight.
“A snake had entered the BJP camp office premises in Shiggaon, spreading chaos among the people present there, but it was later rescued, and the building premises were secured amid the CM's presence,” the report said.
Shiggaon is one of the most closely watched seats since Congress candidate Yasir Ahmed Khan Pathan and Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai are in an extremely close contest, the report mentioned.
According to reports, CM Basavaraj Bommai, who is running for reelection for the fourth time in a row, has a strong electoral advantage.
However, after a high-decibel campaign during which all three key players in the fray-the incumbent BJP, the Congress, and the Janata Dal (Secular)-went at each other and pulled out stops and heavyweight campaigners to woo voters, the verdict in the battle for the Karnataka Assembly now rests with the people's court, and results will be out in a few hours, the report mentioned.
