BJP President Rajnath Singh on Monday condemned the attack on women in a Mangalore pub and said he will hold discussions with the Karnataka chief minister on the issue.
About 15 to 20 activists, reportedly belonging to Sri Ram Sena, had barged into a local pub in Mangalore on Sunday and beaten up women guests accusing them of behaving in an "obscene manner."
"The act is condemnable and whoever is responsible need to be booked and justice need to be delivered," Singh told reporters in New Delhi.
"I would be holding discussions with Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on the issue on Monday in Bangalore," he added.
He would be taking a halt in Bangalore on his way to Mysore where he will attend a rally.
