The padayatra launched by Congress leaders from January 9 is a politically motivated programme.

Siddaramaiah has accused that Tamil Nadu BJP leaders are being incited against it.Will the Congress leaders of Tamil Nadu support the Padayatra?”Bommai asked.

Reacting to Siddaramaiah’s charge Bommai said, we need to work unitedly for the cause of Karnataka’s language,land and water.DPR has been prepared for the Mekedatu project.

It is before the Central Water Commission.State government has taken the project seriously. Efforts are on to realise it.”

RSS or BJP have nothing to do with Ramanagar incident: CM

RSS and BJP have nothing to do with the Ramanagara incident,Bommai said.Replying to DK Shivakumar’s reaction on the spat over Ambedkar’s stature that happened at the programme in Ramangar, Bommai said,unveiling of Dr BR Ambedkar and Nada Prabhu Kempe Gowda’s statues was a pre-scheduled programme.

Many meetings have been held about it.Media itself is witness as to who triggered the argument.It is a very unfortunate incident.The concerned people should introspect about it he added.
