Udupi: MLA Raghupati Bhat slams Siddaramaiah for tweet condemning cops’ ‘saffron’ attire


Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (JD)

Udupi, Oct 17: MLA Raghupati Bhat has condemned former chief minister Siddaramaiah’s tweet over police wearing saffron coloured clothes on the occasion of Dasara.

Siddaramaiah had tweeted two photos of police personnel of Kaup police station in Udupi and Vijayapura police station in which police personnel of respective stations were seen wearing saffron coloured clothes.

The former chief minister had condemned the act and also added, "Not just the dress, give trishul and ordain them with violence thus the dream of jungle raj will be fulfilled.”

Replying to Siddaramaiah’s tweet Bhat said, "Police have worn traditional attire on festival day. What's wrong in it? You wear skullcap on Tipu Jayanthi and wear Topi when visiting the Masjid. You need to see everyone equally as you are in a responsible position.”

Speaking to the reporters in Udupi, Bhat said "Why do you fear seeing saffron? You do not remember the fraternity when visiting temple wearing green shawl and skullcap. Saffron represents sacrifice. As you had opposed saffron concentrating minority votes, Congress has reached this position today. I support the police personnel. This shows his mentality. Trishul is a weapon worshipped by Hindus. Giving Trishul to police is a good idea.”

    Bhandu Mam ...A man like bhat winning has got nothing to do with congress inefficiency..It is not the man but the seat which has won....The venom in the minds of gullible people have been filled up soo soo much that they dont care who and why,They just think that minorities are their enemies and they want the same party in power which hates minorities..Else Bhatta doesnt even have 5% chance against Madhwaraj

    Govt servants including Police should avoid religous attire at Govt Functions. They are liberty to done any attire at private functions. Br Bhat being an elected MLA should know the rues of service by now.

    Bhat there should be a uniformity, don't talk about your illiteracy. Siddharamaih said right, now situation in SK is very delicate, don't support, we need peace, because of you (Ministers) making baseless statement and public has to suffer.

    Is police station government or private entity ? Police can wear any color dress as they want but why to wear in police station property ? Police station is not their private property to use. Tomorrow other religion people can also wear any cloths and take pics. This is nothing but to saffronize the police dept. What Siddaramayya said is absolutely correct. No one should worship and follow any religion in GOVT property.

    the MLA forgets that officers on duty have no religion - Siddararaiah is right in deploring the act. People like him help polarise society. CM Bommai also appears to be on the same page.

    Please note religion is a private and personal matter, celebrate at home and not at your work place unless you are prepared to celebrate all the festivities irrespective of religion. After all these days India has become an extreme Communal venomous intolerant nation.

    One by one in every state MLAs from BJP are joining congress. No need for EVMs to be scrapped either tampered or clean. No money with BJP for Operation Kamala. G-23 in congress are reconciling and uniting as one big force and electing Rahul Gandhi unanimously once again as party president. BJP is desperate and losing support from everywhere. Single vote in TN. It’s new tsunami wave against BJP. Trishuls are knocking congress doors for security.

    If Bhat is winning consistently in Udupi, what to say of the Congress? Invincible forts of Congress they were at one point of time ! Waqt Waqt ki baat hai ! Remember 1991 when Rajiv had cone to inaugurate renovated Gokarnatha Temple ! Full Congress men ! Successive Dasaras all Congress affair ! This time MP Nalin Kumar inaugurates. Full BJP affair... not a Congress man to be seen ! Everything comes a full circle folks ! Regarding this Sidda he has become a head ache for the Congress. He has also started walking like a crab these days. Visiting mosques at odd hours, eating samosas and mumbling nonsense within the mask to rhyme with prayers inside has become his routine. Sidda, Pappu and now Siddu are 3 aces of the ruling party now. One falling over the other to ensure victory for the ruling party... Some sample dialogues if three... 1.Sidaa... Tasleema No Ivathu Ilaa Rasagulla. 2.Siddu.... Aaloo Aaloo.. Luia Lu Lu Lucia. 3.Pappu : I am going to meet those who have been killed and let you know.... ( Latest video clip )With these kind of Dumbaas really... A man like Bhat winning , tells you story of Congress in a nut shell.
