Fight for Datta peeta to continue: Minister

Higher Education Minister C T Ravi has said that lot of injustice has been meted out at Hindus when it comes to Datta Peeta. “We will continue our political, religious and legal fight to free Datta Peeta,” he said.

Speaking to presspersons after taking part in Shobha Yatra on Wednesday, he said that all those who believe in the power of the Peeta, can take part in Datta Jayanthi celebrations.
“We have not invited anyone this year. Last year, the one who had taken part in Datta Jayanthi celebrations had become Chief Minister. Later, he forgot Peeta. The society will never accept anyone who makes false promises. Those who have forgotten Datta Peeta will not be in power for long,” he said hinting out at former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa.

“All grama devatas have taken part in Shobha Yatra for the first time in the history. The tradition will continued, to unite the people.” Bajrang Dal convener Sooryanarayana said that Datta Jayanthi is a programme organised by Bajrang Dal and Sangh Parivar. “We will not allow politics to enter into it,” he clarified.

“We want Datta Peeta to be declared as Hindu peeta. Muslim brothers should voluntarily vacate the tombs,” he said.

Distribution of sarees as a part of Anusooya Jayanthi celebrations at the house of C T Ravi is a personal issue. It has nothing to do with the Sangh Parivar, he said.
