No politics in the name of religion: Minister Dr HC Mahadevappa

Mysuru, March 20:- District In-charge Minister Dr H C Mahadevappa has said that there is no question of dividing the Hindu religion.

He was speaking to the media persons in the city during his visit on Tuesday.

“The state government has approved the request of the Lingayat community for a separate religion status. Congress doesn’t need to do politics by dividing a religion,” he said.

Responding to his candidature from Bengaluru, the minister said, “I don’t want to go away from the district. I share a special bond with the Mysuru region. People of Nanjangud and T Narasipur have blessed me over the past 30-40 years. I will not contest from C V Raman Nagar in Bengaluru. I will be with the people of Mysuru and do the works of the party. Congress will win the 2018 Assembly elections. The party high command will finalise the tickets and we will stand by what the party says.”

“I am also an aspirant for the party ticket from T Narasipur. I have submitted my application. If my father doesn’t contest, I will. I won’t contest from Bengaluru. If I have to contest, it will be from T Narasipur,” said Sunil Bose, son of Dr Mahadevappa, who accompanied his father. (MR/KS).
