Channarayapattana: Bharatiya Janata Party Hassan Lok Sabha constituency candidate A Manju has opined, here on Sunday, May 12, that the Congress and Janata Dal (S) candidate Prajwal Revanna would be facing legal consequences, based on the assets information submitted to the Returning Officer.
Speaking to the media, he said that Prajwal had submitted false documents to the Returning Officer about his assets.
