A woman with Twitter handle Dr. Som Dutt claimed to have ‘suffered’ at the hands of Surya and questioned why the BJP had not done a background check before giving him the ticket. She also alleged she was not his first victim or would be the last and also claimed to be ready to share the proof.
However, the comments were later deleted, the screenshots of which were later shared by Karnataka Congress on Twitter.
Sharing few screenshots of the tweets posted by the concerned woman accusing Tejasvi of manhandling, Karnataka Congress said, “Is Tejasvi Surya another M J Akbar in the making?”, while attacking the saffron party on the choice.

28-year-old Surya, a lawyer, filed his nomination on Tuesday, March 26.
