Mangaluru, Sep 15: District Congress president Harish Kumar said, “BJP showed their true colours with the demolition of religious places in the state.”
Addressing media here on Wednesday September 15, Harish Kumar said, “The BJP formed government with the votes of Hindus and have taken contract of Hindutva. Now they have shown their true colours with the demolition of temples. It is said that notice has been served to the Mysuru district administration over removal of unauthorized religious structure. Undoubtedly, there is government’s hand in this removal. No deputy commissioner and Tahsildar has courage to demolish religious temples without the hand of the government. This can be termed as politically sponsored move.
“The government has received criticism from Hindu groups and their own leaders. Hindu groups have called for protest. Is this a drama to protest against their own government? People are tired of the drama and will not encourage them further. Chief minister Basavaraj Bommai said not to hurry in demolition of temples. Does it mean that they should make some delay and demolish them?
“Bommai should have apologized for the move. We urge the government to identify places and reconstruct the temples which have been demolished,” he said.
