Siddaramaiah laid foundation stone on Hindu activist Paresh Mesta’s Dead Body – Karandlaje
Udupi: Udupi- Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje on Friday, December 8, accused chief minister Siddaramaiah and said that he had laid the foundation stone in Uttara Kannada district, on the dead body of Hindu activists.
While speaking at a press meet held at her office, Shobha said that chief minister Siddaramaiah had visited Uttara Kannada district on Wednesday and Thursday. During his visit, he launched many programmes in the district. While he was launching projects, violence had erupted in Honnavar town between two communities. In the violence, a Hindu activist of Chandapur village, Paresh Mesta (21) had gone missing. The Police in spite of knowing that Paresh had gone missing suppressed the issue in order to allow chief minister Siddaramaiah’s programme to go on smoothly in Honnavar. On Thursday the Chief minister’s programme completed successfully by laying foundation stones for 52 developmental projects.
Shobha further said that the chief minister had personally known that Hindu activist Paresh Mesta was killed by Jihadi activists. But he along with the district administration had purposely not disclosed the death of Paresh Mesta. When Sharath Madivala was killed in Mangaluru the same chief minister Siddaramaiah’s programme was scheduled in Adyar. The hospital authorities made a delay in announcing his death to allow chief minister Siddaramaiah’s programme to finish in Adyar.
In the last 4.5 years, Hindu workers have been continuously killed in Karnataka. This is proof of how lightly the Congress government and chief minister Siddaramaiah is taking these incidents. The State government must act soon lest the people will teach it a befitting lesson in the upcoming elections, she added.
During the violence in Honnavar, the culprits had thrown footwear at the Shanishwara Temple and also damaged many bikes and BJP leader Sooraj Nayak’s Car. Sooraj Nayak had personally contacted the district SP, but the police failed to control the situation. The police resorted the Lathi charge on the BJP activists, the culprits were openly using swords and other weapons, and police were not taking any action against them. Two Hindu activists were seriously injured and admitted to Manipal Hospital, many others are admitted to the Honnavar Hospital. After our demand, the Manipal Hospital doctors’ team will conduct the post-mortem of Paresh’s body. She also said that she will visit Paresh’s house in the afternoon and console the family.
When questioned on the statement made by senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “neech aadmi”, Shobha said that it shows the Congress mentality. Mani Shankar Aiyar has directly insulted the SC and ST community. Why he used the “neech aadmi” word against Narendra Modi? Congress should answer this. His suspension is just an eyewash. The Congress Party has challenged the weaker and backward sections of India by calling the Prime Minister as neech, the people will teach them a lesson, she said.
