Belagavi: Police detained scores of pro- Kannada activists who made a bid to enter the district defying prohibitory orders on Monday.

The members of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) Praveen Shetty faction led by their leader were on ‘Belagavi Chalo’ to Suvarna Vidhana Soudha, but stopped at Hirebagewadi checkpost. They were informed about section 144 CrPC in place prohibiting the assembling of four persons and above in groups.

Later, as the activists refused to budge, police took the activists into custody and took them in a waiting bus.

Praveen Shetty who condemned the police action said ” We were here to support the State Government against Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti ( MES) and Shiv Sena. It was not right on the part of MES men to descecrate the statue of freedom fighter Sangolli Rayanna.”

Also Kannada activists raised slogans against Mines and Geology Minister Halappa and Legislative Council chairman Basavaraj Horatti at Belagavi.

Shetty said “A meeting of Kannada organisations is convened in Bengaluru on Wednesday, where future course of action will be decided. Vatal Nagaraj, Sa Ra Govind and several other prominent Kannada leaders will be attending the meeting.”
