Mangalore, Jan 7: Former Union Minister and senior Congress leader B Janardhana Poojary criticizes RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat for his hatred speech against other religions during Hindu Sangama. Hence the government must take stringent action against him.
Addressing the media persons at the press meet held at Congress Office on Jan 7, Tuesday, Poojary said that being a doctor, he must be involved in social welfare activities, but in the case of Bhat, he has involved himself in raising communal issues through the provocative speeches.
He also said that, though he is a Hindu activist, Bhat do not know the value of religion and goes against it by hurting the religious sentiments of other community.
Poojary also said that Hindu is a pure religion with culture, tradition and respect and Bhat is lacking the knowledge and values and is destroying the purity of the religion.
The government and police department must take stringent action against Bhat and the organizers of Hindu Sangama, or else I will take action against the government, Poojary warned.
He also condemned H Anjaneya, social welfare minister for demolishing the Vidhana Soudha wall. Hence CM must strict action must be taken against him since Vidahana Soudha is like temple and no one has the right to touch it.
Leaders Vijay Kumar Shetty, Kodijal Ibrahim, Kallige Tharnath Shetty, Sadashiv Ullal and Harikrishna Bantwal and others were present.
