Addressing the Press at Circuit House on August 23, Tuesday he said that  it was shameful to note that University College campus was used to conduct a political programme in which Amit Shah participated."The homage paid to  Rani Abbakka was just a political drama," he alleged.

He also said that  authorities have been asked to restrict such programmes in the College  campus in future. 

Rai condemned the incident wherein  cow vigilantes had   made a murderous assault on Praveen Poojary over cattle transportation issue.  He dubbed Sangha Parivaar   as "Chaddi Parivaar" and alleged that the  Parivar activists were mentally unstable and attacked innocent people in the name of cow protectors. Now even minorities and   SCSTs targeted by cow vigilantes, he said.

 The cow vigilantes in Dakshina Kannada are Bajrangdal activists who are mostly with criminal background with many facing  several cases  in the twin districts. "BJP and Chaddi Parivaar are spilling  venom on youth to indulge in immoral activities," he added.

District Congress has already submitted memorandum to Western Range IGP for thorough probe and strict action against the attackers of Praveen Poojary, Rai informed. 

DK Interim Congress President Ibrahim Kodijaal, Mayor Harinath, Former Mayor Shashidhar Hegde, Youth Congress President Mithun Rai, Kavitha Sanil and others were present
