Mangaluru, Dec 12, 2017: Expelled Congressman Harikrishna Bantwal who is now with the BJP has alleged that the Samarasyada Nadige held today under the leadership of DK District in-charge Minister with the participation of several organisations was a flop show.
Speaking to reporters here, Harikrishna said only 500 people participated in the rally and stated that it was not a Samarasyada rally but a ridiculous rally.
He questioned the necessity to hold such a programme when harmony could not be achieved during the last four years of Rai’s tenure. He also stated that there would be no harmony as long as Rai remains a minister.
’No support from Janaradhana Poojary’: Harikrishna Bantwal has claimed that senior leader Janardhana Poojary has not extended support to the rally. He also alleged that using a photo of Rai with Poojary at a wedding ceremony, false publicity was given that Poojary has backed the rally.
BJP spokesperson Jithendra Kottari was present.
