BJP Stirring Up Mandya to Find Political Base: DCM D K Shivakumar

Bengaluru, Jan 30: Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar today accused the BJP of stirring up emotions in Mandya to build a political base in the district.

Speaking to reporters on the controversy around Hanuma Dwaja, he said, “BJP leaders are trying to disturb peace in Mandya for political gains. BJP candidates lost deposit in many of the constituencies in Mandya and hence they are trying to find a political base by joining hands with the JDS. Their efforts will not pay off as the people of Mandya are tolerant and secular and they won’t fall for gimmicks like this. Our objective is to ensure peace.”

Asked about the comments of the BJP leaders that Congress is anti-Hindu, he said, “We are all Indians first. Kempegowda Committee and Dalita Sangharsha Samithi also want to hoist the flag there. Are we not all Hindus? Are the people of Mandya not Hindus? BJP is trying to create disturbance for its own gain.”
