Mangaluru, Nov 14, 2018: Chikkamagaluru MLA CT Ravi has launched a scathing attack on the state government and has accused the government of pursuing double standards.
Speaking to reporters here on November 14, Wednesday, he strongly condemned the arrest of Kodagu journalist Tammaiah, who, he said had exposed the cruel deeds of Tipu Sultan. "Someone who just spoke about Tipu’s misdeeds is arrested while people like Prof Bhagwan, Yogish Master and others are not arrested despite their hate comments. The police remain silent even when people like Girish Karnad hold placards saying I am an Urban Naxal," said Ravi.
He also claimed that demonetization has actually strengthened the economy of the nation. He said it was Congress government which helped entrepreneurs like Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya get loans.
District BJP Chief and Puttur MLA Sanjeeva Matandoor, MP Nalin Kumar Kateel and other leaders were present.
