The only crime of Mahesh Vikram hegde is that, he has been exposing the lies of Gandhi family.
Height of Vendetta politics, Coalition govt is imposing real emergency.
Realizing that their Unholy Alliance Government is on the death bed, CM @hd_kumaraswamy and @siddaramaiah have let loose State Police on Nationalists.— Chowkidar C T Ravi 🇮🇳 ಸಿ ಟಿ ರವಿ (@CTRavi_BJP) April 24, 2019
