Bangalore, April 18: The Bangalore IED blast on Wednesady (April 17) has once again exposed the sinister designs of political parties in Karnataka.

Moreover, as Karnataka Assembly Elections 2013 are slated on May 5, both ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and opposition Congress are trying to cash in maximum out of the tragedy.

Fortunately, all the injured 16 people in the blast are said to be out of danger.

Around 10.30 am in Malleshwaram, located in north Bangalore a bomb went off just few metres away from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headquarters.

Just an hour later, a senior Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad tweeted, "If the blast near BJP's office in Banglore is a terror attack,it will certainly help the BJP politically on the eve of election."

Thus, politics started over a terror attack.

Then, BJP leaders started saying that the blast was targeted at them and accused Indian Mujahideen being responsible for the blast, even before the probes are over.

After that came an "explosive" statement from Congress.

"It is quite possible that the BJP is encouraging these blasts to gain in elections. The party benefited after the blasts on the Hubli court premises during the 2008 assembly elections," said Congress leader Siddaramaiah.

The newly floated KJP leader Shobha Karandlaje acted matured and said terror attacks should not be politicised.

"It's a question of security of the nation and lives of people," she said.

In an official release, the BJP claimed that "there is no doubt on BJP leaders and party workers being targeted by the attackers" and that the explosion was aimed at hampering the preparations of the party for the elections, although it didn't identify the attackers nor their motive in attacking the BJP workers at this point of time.

"It's mainly done to demoralise and instill fear in the party workers," the ruling party stated.

But, the "smart" voters of Karnataka know that "dirty politics" is played over terror attack in India's IT hub.
