Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Nov 18, 2014: Senior Congress leaderhas lashed out at Sri Rama Sene Chief  Pramod Muthalik for his recent statement calling people to ‘Chop the hands of rapists.’

 B Janardhana Poojary


Speaking to reporters here on November 17, Monday, the former union minister said the Sri Rama Sene leader was encouraging cruelty through such statements and added that no one has the right to take law into their hands.

Poojary also referred to the 2009 Amnesia pub attack case in Mangalore in which Sri Rama Sene activists were the accused and questioned whether Muthalik  has preferred to forget the way in which the Sene activists treated young women who were in the bar at the time of the incident.

As expected, Poojary also hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said the Prime Minister instead of visiting foreign nations and speaking about safety and empowerment of women, should try to  visit different parts of the nation and assuage the women who are victims of violence.

“The Prime Minister should also visit Mangalore to know the situation here,” Poojary demanded.

Harikrishna Bantwal and  Leelaksha Karkera were also present at the press meet.

While Poojari conducts a press meet,no other politican/ elected representative like Rai,Bangera,Bava,Lobo.Ivan from his party takes part in it..I fail to understand the real motive behind this fact.Whether there is a devide in city congress leaders.What is Poojari’s ststus in the party to address the meet.Why Mutalik is not being arrested for wrong utterings as it is his party’s own govt in the state.

Poojary may be of the opinion that Modiji too indulge in actvitiies like what he is doing now at Kudroli temple now!! Pojjary should stop ’taking on’ Modiji as he was a rejected piece by the people of Mangalore. However people enjoy always Vidhooshaka part in yakshagana!!!
