Modi should answer if Iftar meet at Krishna Mutt is correct: Mutalik

Pramod Muthalik

Sri Ram Sene president Pramod Muthalik on Monday sought to know from Prime Minister Narendra Modi whether Pejawar Mutt seer Vishveshateertha Swami's act of organising Iftar meet at Krishna Mutt was correct.

"The BJP, the Congress and the JD(S) have failed to protect interests of Hindus. Voters shouldn't support these parties as they try to appease Muslims," he told reporters here.

"Voters should support either Shiv Sena or any other party in favour of Hindus. The voters should press NOTA option if none of the candidates is in favour of Hindus," he said.

A total of 40 candidates from Shiv Sena are in the fray and about 5 of them are likely to emerge victorious, he said.

"The BJP is keeping Ram Mandir issue alive due to votes. Praveen Togadia was sent out of Vishva Hindu Parishad as he questioned the BJP's commitment to the construction of Ram Mandir," he charged.

Mutalik claimed that the BJP did not have candidates for Raichur Assembly segment.

"They brought Dr Shivaraj Patil from the JD(S) and issued him the ticket. The Congress candidate Syed Yasin, an MLA for two terms, developed only Masjids, Madarsas and Muslim burial grounds. The JD(S) candidate is anti-national as he has been backed by MIM. Therefore, the voters should support the Shiv Sena candidate Rajachandra," he said.
