An in-house state unit of the BJP on Wednesday requested a complete state ban on the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), for its alleged involvement in August violence (DJ Halli riots) in different parts of the city. In riots, a Congress MLA’s residence and two police stations were torched.

BJP vice-president Arvind Limbavali said that the riots were pre-planned and social media was used extensively for the same.
 
 "A Taliban-like situation prevails in DJ Halli and KG Halli. Efficient officers should be deputed by BBMP and the police for the area," Limbavali demanded.
 
 State BJP president Nalin Kumar Kateel, commenting on the report, said that the riots were a result of leadership crisis within the Congress. "Intelligence failure is not the cause for the riot. The Congress is," he said.
 
 Limbavali said that the report will be submitted to the state government on Thursday. 

Conspiracy to end (careers of) Dalit leaders, open support of Congress to anti-social elements and planned violence by SDPI are among of the reasons quoted for the riots in the BJP report.
