Mangaluru, Jan 12, 2018: Vishwa Hindu Parishad Working President M B Puranik has demanded that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah take back his words describing the BJP and the Sangh Parivar men as ’terrorists.’
Speaking to reporters here on January 12, Friday, he said BJP and the Hindu outfits are known for their patriotic spirit and that they are not traitors. He also wanted to know why the CM targeted the BJP and the Parivar outfits instead of speaking about his Government’s works at the Moodbidri convention.
He charged the CM of pursuing an anti-Hindu stance. Puranik further alleged that the government which stopped Kollur Temple funds for the mid-day meal of Kalladka Sri Rama School and also did not allow supply of Kollur food for the Udupi Dharma Sansad had managed to arrange the temple food for the CM’s Sadhana Samavesh.
Earlier, the VHP and Bajrangdal leaders met Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy who is in the city, at the Commissioner’ office and submitted a memorandum seeking steps to end Love Jihad and cattle smuggling.
They also demanded a ban on the PFI. The Minister spoke to the Hindu leaders for a few minutes.
Jagadish Shenava, Bhujanga Kulal, Sharan Pumpwell and others were present.
