BSR Congress

BSR Congress is a political party based in Karnataka in India.

BSR Congress was formed after some of the leaders in Bharatiya Janata Party in Karnataka split. Some of the prominent members in the party include Reddy brothers - Janardhana Reddy, Karunakara Reddy and Somasekhara Reddy.

The party was formed after the arrest of Reddy brothers in the Bellary mining scam.

B Sreemarulu, a close aide of Janardhana Reddy is also member of the BSR Congress.
