1 min read

Mysuru: Prof K S Bhagwan and other like minded leaders on Saturday staged a protest against the recent decision of the State Government to cancel Tipu Jayanti.

Bhagwan accompanied by the president of Forum for Tipu Jayanti Celebration Zakeer Husen staged protest near the deputy commissioner’s office in the city.

Bhagwan told media ‘The government should either withdraw the order or cancel all other Jayanti celebrations in the State. Tipu was a freedom fighter who is wrongly being portrayed by vested interests’.

Pejawar seer Sri Vishwesha Theerta should be aware of the facts before saying that ‘celebration of Tipu Jayanti would create tense atmosphere in the society’.

The recent decisions of the chief minister gives rise to the doubt that whether the present government will continue the programmes launched by the Congress government headed by Siddaramaiah. It was Siddaramaiah who had taken a decision to celebrate Tipu Jayanti.

A memorandum was submitted to the Tahsildar of deputy commissioner’s office.
