CHITRADURGA: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Tuesday said that Congress MLA Satish Jarkiholi has delivered a “deadly blow” to the faith and confidence on which religion is based. He was reacting to the KPCC working president’s statement on Hindu religion.
“Technically, he has been mentioned ‘Hindu’ in all his school and college certificates. Beliefs have been for several centuries and discussion on such issues is like hurting the sentiments of people”, the noted. He said that the party does not want any apologies from Satish Jarkiholi on the matter, and added that the public will decide.
Reacting to Opposition leader Siddaramaiah’s statement that people are not coming for BJP’s Jan Sankalp Yatra, Bommai said he will invite Siddaramaiah to come and witness the sea of people attending the yatra, which will soon turn into ‘Vijay Sankalp Yatra’.
Speaking on the appointment of an administrator for Murugha Mutt, the CM said that the government has received an application seeking an appointment of the same. “The government has sought a factual report from the Revenue Department on the situation and, based on the report, the next course of action will be decided”, he added.
He said nothing more will be discussed on this issue since the matter is pending before the court. (ANI)
