Veer Savarkar flex row: Ruling BJP, Congress indulge in war of words

Bengaluru, Aug 16 (IANS): The leaders of ruling BJP and opposition Congress in Karnataka have indulged in bitter war of words over stabbing incident and sagging law and order situation over Veer Savarkar flex row in Shivamogga district on Tuesday.

K.S. Eshwarappa, BJP MLA from Shivamogga and former minister stated on Tuesday that if Hindu community rises, there is no question of survival of goondas belonging to Muslim community.

Eshwarappa met Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai over the development and stated that he won't categorise all Muslims as goondas. "That community should have criticised a group of four or five miscreants indulging in such acts. That task has to be done by the Muslim community leaders," he said.

"Opposition parties are dreaming that by bringing Hindu-Muslim communal violence, they can get power. This will not happen. Local Muslims and Hindus are living like brothers in Shivamogga city," he explained.

"The outsiders attached to SDPI and other organisations from Kerala are trying to incite violence. They won't succeed. The husband of Congress party corporator in Shivamogga is directly responsible for violence. Before making allegations on the BJP party, Congress should initiate action against them," Eshwarappa stated.

The attitude of the SDPI organisation to get political mileage in Karnataka has not changed. They reached the mindset of killing Hindus. Referring to the shooting of the main accused in the leg, he said, the government and police have given an example of how they are going to deal with the situation.

Opposition leader Siddaramaiah stated that BJP has the habit of lying and blaming Congress for everything. "BJP leaders pinch the baby and then pose as if they are pacifying it. Why Savarkar's flex was put up in Muslim majority area or why did they have to object to installing Tipu Sultan flex?" Siddaramaiah questioned.

They create confusion and trouble and then blame Congress, he said.

BJP Vice-President B.Y. Vijayendra has stated that boys at the tender age are roaming freely in Shivamogga city wielding knives and weapons. The repeated incidents have proved to be a blackmark on the state.

"The government should consider the case seriously and these elements must be tamed. Unnecessarily confusion is created in Shivamogga. The people who roam on streets are talking about freedom fighter Veer Savarkar. Including Opposition leader Siddaramaiah many are giving confusing statements. Congress party wants to go to elections through violent incidents," he stated.

The issue of removing flex of Veer Savarkar has resulted in violence and stabbing of two persons in Shivamogga city and prohibitory orders have been clamped till August 18. The police have arrested four persons and shot one of them in the leg.

    Siddu always tries to paint wrong picture in every press meet he tries to conduct. Divide and rule is the policy of Congress and this time around, thanks to publicly promoting SDPI and PFI, Congress may well get lesser votes than them as radicals will flock under these outfits

    There was nothing VEER about Savarkar ---- Only cleverly a prefix-- Pleaded with the British -- all under record -- in archives -- Escaped under Technical grounds the murder conspiracy of the MAHATMA -- Even after acquittal -- no notable service post independence -- No institutions -- nothing except ARM CHAIR writing -- now cleverly misappropriated ----by ruling dispensation --- SAVARKAR AND JINNAH were in agreement ----one the Muslim nation and the other the Hindu nation.-- meaning partition -- So now wrong theories floated about NEHRU -- being responsible --

    BJP does not have real heroes so narratives are manipulated.. Strangely taken Shri Vallabhai Patel ....(. nothing wrong except the approach ...divisive ...) ....but he was all along a congress man .. Shri Patel worked well with Panditji .. but needless stories planted on differences .. If there were differences it was discussed ..reasoned out and sometimes compromise as a solution ... natural in democracy ... Shri Patel sadly did not live long after independence but Shri pandit Nehru managed to hold India together .... There was a view by Europe .. USA that India would be balkanised by late 50 ‘s .. ..but with great vision .. holding elections .. etc etc massive projects .. education and big institutions..IIT .. Space ..etc ..we are now still growing & stronger after 75 years of a unified nation ..

    Mostly the kids in their early age act arrogant, stubborn, abusive but our grown up politicians act worse than that. Age only in their visible personality but brains are full of kichidi. signs of aging process ?
