Siddaramaiah criticised for not accompanying president to Udupi

BJP district president Mattar Ratnakar Hegde has condemned Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for not accompanying President Pranab Mukherjee to the temple town.

“The chief minister crossed all barriers of decency in terms of democratic principles. He avoided a visit to the Sri Krishna Mutt in order to continue with his adamant behaviour to not enter the Sri Krishna temple,” he added.

Hegde said that the former district in-charge minister Vinay Kumar Sorake should stop his unruly behaviour of using his men to disturb the development works taken up by the BJP-led Yellur Gram Panchayat.

He added that June 21 would be celebrated as Yoga day and the district BJP is organising Yogasana camp on the occasion.

“Former Chief Minister Yeddyurappa will arrive in the district on June 23 and address a huge party rally in Karkala in the morning. He will meet the Dalits in Karkala and address their grievances.

He will address the media on his arrival at Udupi and later attend the rally in Udupi where more than 5,000 members are expected to take part. The former minister Aravind Limbavali, Ravi Kumar and the Udupi-Chikkamagaluru parliamentarian Shobha Karandlaje will be the chief guests,” said Hegde.
