1 min read

Mysuru: Taking a strong exception to Education minister CN Ashwathamarayan’s comments on Siddaramaiah, youth Congress leaders staged a protest here on Thursday.

Youth Congress leader Mohammed Haris Nalpad led the agitation at JLB Road in front of Indira Gandhi Congress Bhavan on Thursday. They also burnt an effigy of the minister. Minister Ashwathanarayan while addressing a Public rally in Mandya allegedly compared Siddaramaiah with Tipu Sultan and had called people to “finish off” Siddaramaiah like how Tipu was finished.

Siddaramaiah later tweeted that “Higher Education Minister is appealing people to kill me like how Tipu was killed. Ashwathnarayan why are you trying to instigate people? Get the gun yourself.”

As his comments drew sharp criticism, the minister on Thursday regretted his statement. “I regret the statements made if it has hurt Siddaramaiah. I don’t have any personal differences but it’s only political and ideological,” he said.
