Will pull down Manohar Parrikar govt, threatens Muthalik
Belgaum (Karnataka), Aug 21: Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik on Wednesday decided to legally challenge the decision of Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to ban him as unconstitutional and also threatened to pull down the latter's government from power.

Muthalik said he would write to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat about the situation and also accused the Goa chief minister of having turned the BJP into the Bharatiya Jesus Party with the Christians' influence.

On Wednesday evening, Parrikar told the state assembly that his government had banned the Hindu right-wing outfit of Muthalik, fearing violence against women in pubs and night clubs in the state. The Ram Sene caught the headlines in the past for targetting women in pubs and night clubs in Mangalore.

Requests were made to the Goa government from a number of quarters seeking a ban on Muthalik's entry into the state. Muthalik had announced his intention to set up a branch of the Sene in Goa last September.

The Goa govt decided to ban Muthalik fearing violence against women

A miffed Sene chief asked why the Goa government decide to ban his outfit when other "evils" were allowed to work in the state, said a Deccan Herald report. He said the Goa government didn't take any steps against the drug, pub and sex mafia but targetted a patriot with a clean record like him.

This is not the first time that Muthalik and Parrikar had a tiff. During the general election earlier this year, Muthalik's BJP membership was put on hold within hours of joining the party for the chief minister of Goa had reportedly objected to his inclusion.
