Sorake and ShobhaUdupi, Nov 23, 2014: Udupi District in-charge Minister Vinaykumar Sorake got himself entangled in a controversy over a remark targeting Udupi-Chikmagalur MP Shobha Karandlaje.

Sorake who initially was unrelenting to comment when scribes questioned him about the Kiss of Love campaign, later said the CM has already issued a clarification. However, when scribes persisted and drew his attention towards a remark made by Shobha, he only said Shobha seems to be an ‘expert in it.’ However, when scribes wanted an explanation, the minister maintained a silence.

As expected, Sorake’s statement drew flak from the BJP. District BJP Chief Tingale Vikramarjun Hegde  lashed out at the Minister for his ‘derogatory’ statement and demanded an apology from the minister. He also alleged that the minister has crossed the limits of decency  through his statement.
