Exclusive: Bengaluru Youth not supportive of Kiss of Love campaign
Bengaluru, Nov 21: Bengaluru has been upbeat about the Kiss of Love which is likely to be held at the end of this month. The anti-moral policing campaign that took Kochi and Delhi by storm, is likely to be held in the city by Nov end.
OneIndia visited a few colleges and asked a few students, what they thought about this campaign of love.
OneIndia spoke to students of Vijaya, Surana and NMKRV college Jayanagar. Most of the colleges students, both boys and girls, feel that, if at all the organisers want to conduct such activity they must do it outside Karnataka.
If people want to kiss, let them do it inside their house, not outside, they said.
We spoke to Manoj Gowda, Mithun Gowda, Madan, Vijay and Chandan, known as 'Gallery Guys' of Vijaya college.
Their unanimous opinion was that, Kiss of Love should be banned. If Kerala, Tamil Nadu people want to show their love publicly by kissing, let them do it. We have got nothing to do with it. We can't help if somebody want to jump into the well, they said.
Though the boys were bold enough to respond, not many girls came forward with their opinions. However Ramya of NMKRV responded to our query. She said, Bengaluru people certainly don't like this.
It is people from outside who are spoiling the environment. What is the necessity of kissing in public, she shot back with a question. We will not be part of it, let's leave it to high society.
ABVP activist Lakshminarayan was even more furious when asked about Kiss of Love. "News papers make all sorts of news, but this we will never allow this to happen in Bengaluru. We shall stage protest against anti-society activity," he said.
