Mangaluru, Sep 26, 2017: BJP state Minorities Morcha Vice President Rahim Uchil has filed a private petition in a local court against DK District in-charge Minister B Ramanatha Rai alleging that the minister had made an offensive remark against Yuva Brigade leader Chakravarthi Sulibele while participating in a public meeting at Asaigoli near Ullal on September 22.
As per the complaint, Rai had dubbed Sulibele as ’Sule Bele’ which conveys a wrong meaning in Kannada. Rai has also accused Sulibele of being an ’anti-national’ at the same meeting, Rahim alleged in his complaint.
He has also provided newspaper clippings of the report as well as a CD of Rai’s speech.
Rahim Uchil said even Chakravarthi Sulibele was present at the programme and the speech had gone viral on social media causing much humiliation to Sulibele.
