HJV asks DC to withdraw complaint against Jagadish Karanth

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Nov 26, 2021: The Hindu Jagarana Vedike has demanded the withdrawal of the complaint lodged by Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner Dr Rajendra K V against the Vedike’s  Organising Secretary Jagadish Karanth over the latter’s  speech during a meeting at Karinja recently.



Speaking to reporters on November 25, Thursday, Radhakrishna Adyanthaya, Regional Executive Committee Member of the Vedike, said the case against Karanth was a bid to  suppress the voice of those who are fighting against the illegal quarrying around the Karinja temple.

He said quarrying was being done unlawfully around the temple area since 2007 and that repeated appeal to the elected representatives as well as officials have yielded no result. It was in this backdrop  an awareness meet was held on November 21, he added.

Karanth in his address at the meeting had set December 21 as the deadline for the administration to  suspend illegal quarrying in Karinja area. "If the demand is not heeded, thousands will march to the  DC office and hold him by his collar," Karanth had reportedly warned.
