Education Minister BC Nagesh was defeated in the assembly elections held in the Indian state of Karnataka.

According to media reports, BC Nagesh as the education minister had launched an anti-hijab campaign in the state and stopped the admission of Muslim girls wearing hijab in educational institutions.

BC Nagesh is a senior leader of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He was defeated by Congress candidate Shadakshari by a margin of more than 17 thousand votes in the Karnataka elections.

In the Karnataka assembly elections, the Congress defeated the BJP in a landslide. Congress won 130 seats while BJP managed to win only 66 seats.
