Rai is 24 Carat Gold, he has Concern for All Communities – Mayor Kavitha

Mangaluru: “The District Minister In-charge is a secular person and has concern for all. He is like 24 carat gold, in his 7 tenures as MLA including minister for 2 terms he has shown concern towards the poor and downtrodden. He does not have enmity with anyone. But in Kalladka those who had stabbed a Muslim youth are with Prabhakar Bhat. Since Prabhakar Bhat started to deliver inciting speeches, DK has witnessed communal violence”, said the Mayor of Mangaluru City Corporation Kavitha Sanil in a press meet held at the District Congress office here on June 20.

Kavitha further said, “In Politics when the elections are nearing, such situations occur. Those of us living in this district should not blame Ramanath Rai for silly reasons. Being the district minister he has concern for the people of the district. Because of communal violence in the district, being under pressure he had called the SP and advised him to take action against those responsible for creating communal violence. Whatever Minister Rai said is not wrong, he has done his duty.”

Addressing the mediapersons President of District Women’s Congress Shalet Pinto said, “Minister Ramanath Rai is a secular person and he respects everyone equally. But the BJP is protesting against him for asking the SP to take action against Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat. Some of the media have highlighted Minister Ramanath Rai in bad light. With the video clipping as a weapon against Rai, the BJP is trying to create communal violence in Kalladka.”

Shalet further said, “MP Shobha Karandlaje has no time for development work in her constituency. The people in her constituency are searching for her since she has disappeared from there and has come to Mangaluru to criticise Ramanath Rai. If she has the capacity, let her contest in Bantwal against Ramanath Rai and win.”

Addressing the mediapersons former president of District Women’s Congress Mamatha Gatti said, “For silly reasons, the opposition is calling for bandh and staging protests which affect the school going children and the working class. Minister Ramanath Rai has worked for the development of the district. In Bantwal whoever invites him for any programme, he visits their house and will have food with them. He does not discriminate anyone but the opposition is protesting against him for inviting the SP to his IB and asking him to take action against Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat. Being a Minister Rai has the responsibility to stop violence and create peace and harmony in the district.”

Mamatha Gatti further said, “When Karthik Raj was murdered our Dakshina Kannada MP stood with the accused and spoke of setting the district on fire. But the Congress did not make it a big issue, When Ramanath Rai being the district minister in-charge asked the SP to take action against Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat, the BJP started to stage protests and are involved in defaming Rai. We all are with Ramanath Rai because we know he is a good person and has worked for the development of the district.”

Corporators Pratibha Kulai, Sabitha Misquith, Appi, Nagaveni and others were also present.
