Kodagutense As Govt Gears Up For Tipu Jayanthi Event

BJP MLC, Appachchu Ranjan said, "Tipu killed several Kodavas and converted many of them. The celebration of Tipu Jayanthi is an insult to Kodagu"


The Kodagu district administration has decided to celebrate TipuJayanthi on November 10. But the Tipu Jayanthi Aacharane Virodi Samithi at Somwarpet has announced its plans to call for a Kodagu Bandh on the same day and also observe the black day.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal leaders who held a press meet at Madikeri, said they would extend complete support to the bandh called by Tipu Jayanthi Aacharane Virodi Samithi and added that they will hold a protest in front of the DC office on November 9.

BJP leader and MLC Sunil Subramani said "Tipu destroyed 310 temples in Kodagu. Former CM Siddaramaiah who celebrated Tipu Jayanthi, lost his position and this time, it will definitely affect the prospects of CM H.D. Kumaraswamy."

Another BJP MLC, Appachchu Ranjan said, "Tipu killed several Kodavas and converted many of them. The celebration of Tipu Jayanthi is an insult to Kodagu."

Meanwhile, Kodagu district minister Mr Sa Ra Mahesh washed his hands off and merely said though local MLAs had spoken to him on the cancellation of Tipu Jayanthi celebrations atleast in Kodagu, he would not be able to take a decision on his own. “Adequate arrangements are being done for a peaceful  Tipu Jayanthi celebration in Kodagu. No one should hurt anyone's feelings. If attempts are made to spoil peace, strict action will be taken," he said.

The Kodagu district administration has decided to hold Tipu Jayanthi at the old council hall at Madikeri, at the taluk office in Virajpettaluk and at Channabasappa hall of the junior college in Somwarpettaluk on November 10.

Southern Range IGP Sharath Chandra visited Kodagu on Wednesday and met Kodagu SP Dr Suman D Pennekar to review security arrangements.
