Revoke permission for yatras: Cong to K'taka Govt

Written by: Staff

Bangalore, Nov 21: Apprehending communal disturbances in Karnataka, KPCC President Mallikarjuna Kharge today appealed to the State Government to withdraw permission given to the Bharatiya Janata Party and Sangh Parivar to take out yatras in the State.

Addressing a press conference here, he said that as a prelude to holding 'Shobha Yatra' at Datta Peetha in Chikmagalur district, the Sangh Parivar had decided to take out 'Sudharshan Yatra', causing concern among the minorities. The Government would be held responsible if any untoward incident took place, he warned.

Mr Kharge asked the Government to take all measures to honour the Karnataka High Court's order issued in March last, directing the Government to maintain status quo at Datta Peetha in Chikmagalur.

On the December four by-election to the Chamundeshwari Assembly byelection, he said that getting a hint of the Congress victory, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and his Deputy B S Yediyurappa were issuing statements in frustration. The Chief Minister was indulging in threatening voters, especially poor ones, he alleged.
