Mysuru: Scores of leaders of bhovi community have staged a protest against Rural Development and Panchayatraj Minister K S Eshwarappa on September 22.
The protesters under the leadership of former chairman of Bhovi Development Board B V Seetharam staged a road block during the arrival of Eshwarappa to the Goddess Chamundeshwari temple.
Seethram told media “the bhovi community that is known as ‘Vadda” has been insulted by Eshwarappa by using the same word to disgrace former chief minister Siddaramaiah. The community has its contribution in building stairs to the temple, KRS Dam and other structures of yore and still continue to involve themselves in the related works”.
The placards with the portraits of morphed pictures of Eshwarappa as a demon was held during the protest.
