‘Revanna Republic of fear’ — how sexual assault, caste bias & abuse of power defined life in Hassan

At the time, there was no way they could have challenged the authority of the Revanna family. Such was the sense of fear in Hassan, the Janata Dal (Secular) bastion where Revanna family ran its writ over all matters of land, caste and local administration. The villages of Hassan, hidden behind swathes of coconut trees in the lap of Kalappanahalli hills, are now in full glare of the country. There is little room for doubt that the most prevalent emotion the Revanna family elicits here is not respect or adulation, but ‘fear’. Residents compare the family’s rule here with that of the most infamous dictators in history and mythology — ‘Aurangzeb’, ‘Mussolini’, ‘Saddam Hussein’ and even ‘Duryodhana’.

Karnataka | Battle of the guarantees

The electoral landscape in karnataka has been marked by a curious paradox since the turn of the century. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been the biggest beneficiary of seats in parliamentary polls in the state since 2004, but has yet to win a state assembly election outright. At the same time, the Congress has come to power twice in Karnataka with a clear majority over these two decades, but has never gone beyond a single-digit seat tally in the four Lok Sabha polls held during these two long decades.
