Mangaluru, Jan 19, 2018: District Congress spokesperson A C Vinayraj has slammed Harikrishna Bantwal, a former Congressman, who is now with the BJP, for hurling unnecessary allegations against DK District in-charge Minister B Ramanatha Rai.
Speaking to reporters here on January 19, Friday, he said Harikrishna Bantwal joined the BJP with the sole intention of maligning Ramanatha Rai.
On Harikrishna’s allegation that the Congress had used the photograph of Shree Narayana Guru during inauguration of various developmental projects in Bantwal, Vinayaraj said the allegation was nothing but a joke. He said photo of Shree Narayana Guru was used during the Narayana Guru Mandir inaugural at Muda Sajipa and not during any political programme.
"Harikrishna Bantwal is answerable to the Billawa community as to whose photo should have been used at the inaugural instead of the photo of Shree Narayana Guru.
