Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP/ANK)

Mangaluru, Oct 9: Addressing a press conference in the city on Monday, October 9, Dakshina Kannada district in-charge minister, B Ramanath Rai, severely criticized BJP, Uttar Pradesh chief minister, Yogi Adityanath, and Hindu outfits.

On the cancellation of national BJP president, Amit Shah's proposed visit to the city, he felt that it was cancelled because of the fact that BJP leaders have lost their hopes of good performance in Dakshina Kannada district. He expressed confidence that Congress will get popular votes in the district during the next election, as he felt that the people will this time support the party that protects communal harmony.

On the issue of Yogi Adityanath's criticism about the state government, Rai pointed out that hundreds of small children had died in Uttar Pradesh for want of oxygen and that law and order situation in that state has been abysmal. "Yogi Adityanath has not been able to perform in his own state, but he has the guts to come here and give advice to others," he pointed out.

“BJP are a group of radicals who instigate communal violence for the purpose of vote. A lot of innocent people were killed like Harish Poojary and Karthik Raj just to instigate communal violence and to gain votes. BJP should be ashamed to roam with the accused of Vinayak Baliga’s murder. Harish Poojary was not involved in any organization and Karthik Raj murder was politicized by BJP,” stated Rai.

On a query about Nalin Kumar’s allegation that drug mafia has been on a rise since four years, Rai replied, "I do not agree with the statement of Nalin Kumar Kateel, as drug mafia existed even during BJP's rule. Drug mafia has to be controlled for which a special team will be formed soon.”

He also said, “To bring an end to the scarcity of sand, the government has ordered to provide license for the extraction of sand in both CRZ and non-CRZ areas.”

Commenting about the controversial statement of Sri Ram Sene head, Prmod Mutalik, seeking to sever business links with Muslims, Rai took Mutalik to task in singular. "Mutalik is nobody. He is trying to become a leader by raining abuses against others," he said. Ramanath Rai also said that respectable persons have no place in BJP as it is full of radicals.

Lampooning Bajrang Dal, he stated that a person facing highest number of cases is offered the post of the president in that outfit while the post of the vice president goes to people with second highest number of cases.

Mayor Kavitha Sanil, Corporator Shashidhar Hegde, Mithun Rai, Ibrahim Kodijaal, BH Khader and others were present.

    First Set right your State Govt Hospitals Primary Health centers & Roads, especially drainage in Bangalore, Mysore then if you have spare time condemn the others. one month after Bangalore is in the same condition that instead of BMTC service now Govt have to think of giving Boat service in the city. Law & order situation fully failure, honest police officers are insulted by Govt, now anybody can murder any one at any time any place in Karnataka. Govt is busy dividing society by Caste politics, New Religion sponsorship etc, shame. All Congress ministers are busy in collections for next elections.

    Rather than scaring minorities in the name of BJP, Modi, Yogi now congress should concentrate on things that matters most in current political scenario. People are not brainless to get frightened by politicians speeches, they can switch sides at any time. Do the congress has anything else to say other than Modi-Modi-Modi, Yogi-Yogi-Yogi, get into some constructive & productive work.

    I strongly agree with "kalandar Mannapu, Puttur ". BJP is shining across the country , Congress becoming a party with peanut count. Without really analyzing what made them to reach this pathetic state , these shameless people are commenting just like that. BJP leaders with roar... obviously because whole nation is giving them mandate... your prince and queen are silent and looks taken some shelter at Italy. Must have all backup plans in place after 2019 election. So, these local leaders are still not realizing where the public has taken them to... and commenting on BJP... ayyo ayyo.... let someone show them a mirror please...

    I'm always seeing Ramanath Rai talking only about BJP has done this thing, they are communal etc. Ok agree to all this. I'm seeing from the last 25 yrs that Congress is losing there base when you see the no. of MLA's from Congress and BJP. Congress cannot win Lok Sabha election from the last 25 yrs from Mangalore. We need to investigate why this is happening. There must be issues within the Congress that they are not able to get votes. Reasons might be many. All the 3 muskeeteres i.e Janardhan Poojary, Oscar Fernandes, Veerappa Moily are the most useless politicans. Many might not agree with this. It's a fact. They only talk BJP is that etc etc but they the don't say what they can do for the people. They will say they will give 30 kilos rice etc which is eye wash. They will never say we will give job opportunities for the youth. I was seeing recently when outsiders were getting jobs in Mangalore non of the Polictians came out and spoke against it. This is the apathy. Only Kannada Rakhsana Vedike came out. This same applies to BJP also. All the politicians in our Undivided District have made there money other than Halady Shetty from Kundapur, All our Politicians are having big houses, property etc etc. Pls we need Politicians who will do improvement withregards to Infrastructure like Roads, Water, Job Opportunities for our youth in Banks, Pvt Sectors. We need Politicians who fight for this and then you see the difference. Now only our Politicians talk that BJP is Communal, Congress claims that they are secular etc etc. All are same they are making money by fooling and giving statements like they are perfect. Drug Mafia is poisoning our youth. This must be fought with all stengths else in the next 20 yrs we might have a situation like Punjab where drugs are rampant. Youths irrespective of Religion must come out and fight else Politicians will take us all for a ride.

    I fully support Mr. Rai. The Sangh Parivar is out to change the face of the country. I was listening to the programme "We the People" on NDTV and I was shocked to hear the comments and remarks from eminent people, scientists and so on claiming that the BJP is generously and forcefully distorting modern science with some 5000 year old science. Pathetic...............
