Mysuru, April 16:- Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president Dr B H Manjunath condemned the statement by MLA and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) working president Dinesh Gundu Rao who asked the public to beat up Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with slippers if he visits the state again.
“Though Adityanath is the Chief Minister, he is the seer of Gorakhpur Mutt. The mutt has a close relationship with Adichunchanagiri Mutt in Karnataka and both are of Natha panth. Rao has insulted the followers of Natha panth with his words and voters of Karnataka will teach him a lesson in the Assembly elections,” Dr. Manjunath added. (MR/SH).
