Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai opined that there will be pro and anti beliefs and arguments on noted personalities like Savarkar and Tipu Sultan. Since these are historical facts it is common to have pro and anti arguments.

But in case any rationality,it must be defended with rationality and oppose the same with it. Such issues must not be dragged to streets and create law and order problems.

Talking to reporters here on Sunday on his way to participate in a number of programs in Haveri district, he said former prime minister,late Smt Indira Gandhi has praised Savarkar as great son of the country.

In democracy,responsibility is on them to decide till level they can defend somebody on what platform. If they understand this,it is possible to work despite having differences.

Our responsibility

Instruction has been given to provide proper security to opposition leader.However, it is left to political parties to give political touch to thus incident. But maintaining law and order is the duty of all political parties,he added.
