MPs accused of neglecting Kannada

The BJP and the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike criticised both the MPs since they took oath in English.

Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday, Member of Legislative Council and State government chief whip Dr Shivayogi Swamy said that Moily and Muniyappa should have taken oath in Kannada respecting the sentiments of the citizens of the State. “By taking oath in English they have neglected Kannada,” he alleged.
