Mangaluru, Aug 24,2017: BJP Yuva Morcha in Karnataka will organise huge bike rallies, ‘Mangaluru Chalo’ from five cities of the state urging Karnataka government to ban two communal organisations, Popular Front of India (PFI) and Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD), said Mysuru-Kodagu Lok Sabha MP, BJP youth leader, Pratap Simha told a bevy of media representatives in the city Aug 23, Wednesday, while releasing a poster about this.
The bike rallies are scheduled to arrive in Mangaluru on September 7 from Hubballi, Shivamogga, Bengaluru, Mysuru, and Chikkamagaluru with a participation of 10, 000 bikes, Pratap Simha said launching the poster of ‘Mangaluru Chalo’ Rally. The bike rally from Hubballi is scheduled to start on September 5, while rallies from other places will begin on September 6.
Speaking KFD and PFI, Pratap Simha said, both organisations have been promoting communal hatred in Karnataka and around the country soon after their formation. As evidence to their act, when R Ashok was home minister in BJP led government in Karnataka, as many as 175 criminal cases were filed against 1,600 memebers of KFD and PFI.
However when Siddaramaiah became the chief minister of the state, he withdrew all the 175 cases registered against PFI and KFD in an attempt to defend them. The move of the present chief minister has pushed the communal organisations to move with their communal objectives further in the state, Simha said.
