Known for his controversial remarks, the Union Minister Anantkumar Hegde claimed he was the target of a failed assassination bid on Tuesday.
This he said as a car in his convoy was involved in an accident in Karnataka’s Haveri district.
It need be mentioned that Karnataka is poll bound and Congress as the ruling party too has good chance of return to power.
Hegde alleged that there was a “deliberate attempt” on his life and claimed that a truck tried to ram into his car but hit a vehicle which was part of his convoy.
It emerged that one of his support staff suffered a fractured shoulder.
Hegde went on to identify the driver as one Nasir and urged the police to ensure proper police inquiry into the incident.
Hegde said that the vehicle was driven in the wrong direction and had been parked on the road horizontally.
The truck tried to hit his car when his convoy approached.
Meanwhile Karnataka authorities have promised to look into the matter.>
