Tipu Jayanti: CM warns action against trouble-makers

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday warned that strict action would be taken against those who take the law into their hands on the occasion of Tipu Sultan Jayanti scheduled on November 10.

“The BJP leaders are trying to divide the society. Yeddyurappa had praised Tipu Sultan when he was in the KJP. This shows his double standards,” he told reporters on seeking his reaction to the BJP threatening to launch a protest against the government’s decision to organise the Jayanti.
