Speaking to mediapersons, RSS leader Subramanya Holla said that the state government is celebrating the Tipu Jayanti to strengthen its vote bank by appeasing the minority community. ”Tipu Jayanti is an insult to Indian history. Tipu had destroyed many temples in the state. He was against Hindus and had destroyed nearly 8,000 temples,” he said.
