MLC Vishwanath castigates Muthalik for raking up communally-sensitive issues

Prime News, National, Karnataka, Politics, Mysuru, April 25:- Bharatiya Janata Party MLC A H Vishwanath on Monday (April 25) slammed Sri Rama Sene chief Pramod Muthalik for raking up communally-sensitive issues in the State. “After all, what is his local standing? It is a tragedy that the state government is not able to take action against such people. The government doesn’t belong to either the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) or Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP). Who is Muthalik to dictate terms to the government? The government’s inaction will send wrong signals to the people.”

Reacting to the examination scam for recruitment of Police Sub-Inspectors (PSIs) that has rocked the entire system in the State, Vishwanath said, “The sanctity of examinations has taken a beating. It is unfortunate that they are not able to conduct professional examinations properly.”

In response to another scam in Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC), he said, “Qualified people are not getting a chance. If corruption rules the roost, what can we expect? People have started complaining against the state government. The Chief Minister Basavaraj S Bommai should consider this issue seriously.”

Much to the surprise of reporters, Vishwanath offered to help Congress leader Siddarammaiah win from the Hunsur constituency if he is ready to contest from there. We have helped so many people to win the elections from here. Siddaramaiah gave good administration as the Chief Minister. We need such people in the Assembly. The government needs to utilise his expertise.”

On senior BJP leader B S Yediyurappa’s refusal for the Shivamogga Airport to be named after him, Vishwanath said, “He has a point. Shivamogga has produced many great people. Rashtrakavi Kuvempu was born here and why not name the airport after him. We should stop political gimmicks at least now.” (MR/KS)
