Prakash Raj targets Yogi Adityanath over Tipu Jayanti remarks

The noted actor Prakash Raj has taken objection to the statements of Adityanath. In a tweet, Prakash Raj says: "Yogi ji orders people of Karnataka “don’t celebrate tippu sultan in the land of hanuman” dear sir.. what’s your agenda again...#justasking" with a set of photos showing BJP functionaries and BS Yeddyurappa himself celebrating Tipu Jayanti, complete with the headgear Tipu was noted to wear.





Recently, Yogi Adityanath had come to Karnataka for a BJP event, during which he, like some BJP leaders before him, targeted the incumbent Congress government for celebrating Tipu Jayanti.

During his speech, Yogi said that "When Lord Hanuman is being worshipped across the country, the Congress government in Karnataka, the State known for Vijayanagar Empire, is promoting the worship of Tipu Sultan. The Congress is insulting our rich tradition. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah should have respected the feelings of the people while making statements about beef consumption. With continuous murder and poor law and order situation, 'Rakshak' has become 'Bhakshak' here, and anarchy is prevailing,"
