Mangaluru, Dec 2: Members of Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha on Wednesday, December 2 demanded the BJP-led Mangaluru City Corporation to rename Lady Hill circle as Brahmashri Sri Narayana Guru Circle.

Addressing a press meet at a private hotel in the city, Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha executive committee member Dharmendra said, "Cry to rename Lady Hill circle as Brahmashri Sri Narayana Guru Circle is a long pending demand. Though the Congress opposed to rename the circle, BJP-led city corporation members are silent on the issue. The BJP which came to power in the name of Hindutva should re-name the circle as Brahmashri Sri Narayana Guru Circle.

"If the BJP fails to rename Lady Hill circle as Brahmashri Sri Narayana Guru legally, Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha will rename the same through an alternate way.

"Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha will hold a massive protest soon after gram panchayat elections demanding to rename the circle," he said.

Speaking on the graffiti scribbled on the wall of an apartment and at the old police post at the court premises, Dharmendra said, "Graffiti on the wall supporting terrorist organizations is a threat to the internal security of the country. It is also the failure of BJP's administration.

"BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel's statement over winning 90 percent gram panchayats in forthcoming elections has paved way for several doubts. During the Vidhana Sabha elections, several Hindu youths lost their lives in communal violence," Dharmendra said.

He also alleged that the BJP is involved in polarisation politics by creating communal discord in the society.

Speaking on the BJP's re-introduction of the Anti-Cow Slaughter Bill, Dharmendra said, "BJP in the state should enforce a bill which brings complete ban on cow slaughter and the accused should be booked under the IPC section 307 (attempt to murder) and 302 (murder).”

He also said that if BJP follows true Hindutva, it should reveal lines drawn to prevent conversion in the white paper without making it an issue in the manifesto for the next elections.

Taking a dig at BJP leader Jagadish Shenava's statement to a private channel on graffiti row, Dharmendra said, “Jagadish Shenava should define the word 'appreciate', used during a television programme.”

Rajesh Pavitran, state working president; Kamalaksha Polalli, district working president; Kamalaksha M, district organising secretary; Pramod Swami, convener, Bantwal Vidhan Sabha constituency, and others were present.

    Useless people.
    If you really want to fight fight for any of the following.
    1)Proper drainage and proper sewage treatment.
    2)Industrial area company most of the companies dont follow norms.
    3)RESERVATIONS for locals in the companies in SEZ.
    4)Many wineshops serve liquor like in bar and restaurant which is illegal.
    5)No proper roads.
    6)Many new apartments dumping their toilet watse directly into rain water launders.
    7)Deforestration.
    8)5 toll gates in a distance of 120kms.
    9)Depleting ground water level.
    10)Exploitation of rivers with chicken waste and many wastes.
    11)brothels and such activities .
    And many more...leaving all these real issues aside if you are behind changing names...that shows your desperate for attention and have no real concern about the society..

    Renaming " Virus " has not sprung overnight !!! Rather it has been in place, decades ago !!! The earnest desire by Nationalist, to erase painful memories, under alien marauders, religious tyrants, Dynastical rulers and lastly the rule of the despised British crown !!! Bombay became Mumbai... Bangalore to Bangaluru... Mangalore to Mangaluru... This list is endless... Renaming is certainly, a very sensitive subject, all sections of the society, must be taken into confidence, controversies should and must be avoidedat all levels and then only a suitable name, which is acceptable to all should finally, be considered !!!

    If at all renaming, ideal thing is to rename it 'Amma Vrutha', Ammas' Circle or Mothers' Circle as Everyone has or had a mother. It is like respecting all mothers and Our Lady also a motherly figure!

    If their real intention is to honour Sri Narayana Guru and name a circle after him, then please request to name more important circle i.e. circle which is in front of Mangaluru City Corporation. This is busiest circle and should be appropriate.

    Look like they own the street and whole India. Why the law and order is lacking when someone openly challenged by publicly if you dont do it then we will change the name who has give them that power. . Please dont make peaceful India into civil war zone where international communities stop respecting you and stop businesses activities which will hurt India economically. Name change on street is not helping poverty or social responsibility. Go and help poor people than waste your time on publicity drama. We are all come to this world nothing and same way go back naked. Why simbly flight for nothing

    These people talk about cow slaughter ban. How many of them have given any help to the cow shelter at kenjar? What have they done for the cows on the streets? The cow shelternat kenjar will lose its land for a coast guard academy. Why no protests there? Why only selective issues?

    In the midst of a severe economic depression and an intense agitation by farmers going on and spreading like wild fire over farm reforms, here these chaps are fighting for name changing oblivious of the burning issues plaguing the country!

    The courts should pass a blanket ban on name changing business as it also disturbs the peace & harmony in society!

    By changing the name. they want to show that the tracks were laid by them, while they are just riding the train. It is just like claiming success on someone's achievement. I have full respect for Sri Narayan Guru. Do something good in his name and not this cheap act.

    Once Lady Hill, its Lady Hill forever. This is not Uttar Pradesh. Had you guys choosen neutral name would people given a thought of consideration, but no, you want to saffronize each and everything and wipe out the identity of other faiths. Your intentions are bad, we like minded will never support such ill thoughts.

    Today Dharmendra is the chairperson to address the press meet to rename LADY HILL CIRCLE...
    Tomorrow may be AMITABH will hold press meet from another organization to rename one more circle. In between SHOBHA, KATEEL AND IVAN will show their faces with their supporters for some other reasons...So the list will continue day by day... No one cares for the grievances of the MANGALOREANS.
