Mysuru, March 7:- Karnataka Rajya Nayakara Hitharakshana Vedike staged a protest in front of the court and demanded the arrest of those who tried to show disrespect to the statue of Periyar Ramaswamy.
“Periyar Ramaswamy is one among those who fought against the caste system. He held hands of the oppressed class and spread the message of equality. Defacing his statue is unacceptable. Tamil Nadu government should consider this issue seriously and arrest the miscreants,” the protesters said.
State president Dyavappa Nayaka, Prabhakara Hunsur, Sridhar Chamundibetta, Paduvarahalli Ramakrishna, Raju Market and others were present. (MR/KS).
