Attempt to Wave Black Flags at D V Sadananda Gowda in the City Foiled

Mangaluru: When Union minister of Law and former chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda arrived at the Rabindra Kalabhavan of the University College in Hampankatta on Thursday, a group of persons are said to have waved black flags at him.

The Netravati Protection Committee had months ago announced that two former chief ministers hailing from the district would be greeted with such protest every time they visited the district, because of their pro-Yettinahole stand. The Yettinahole project is feared to be detrimental to the westward-flowing rivers and rivulets in the district.

The protesters from the committee, numbering about nine, were arrested by the Bunder police and then released.

There are also unconfirmed reports that eight volunteers of Sri Rama Sene also planned to wave black flags on the same occasion.

The Bunder police who got advance information about it are said to have stopped them half way through and taken them into cusody. They were released later.
