Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje said on Saturday that she had written to the deputy commissioners of Udupi and Chikkamagaluru, asking them not to mention her name in the invite for the Tipu Jayanti celebrations in the two districts.
Opposing the celebrations organised by the Congress government in the state, she called Tipu Sultan "anti-Hindu and anti-Kannada". The government was practising vote-bank politics, Shobha added.
Will mention Hegde's name in Tipu Jayanti invite, says CM
