Congress dharna continues

Congress dharna continues

February 18, 2022

Bengaluru: The indefinite day and night stir launched by the Congress in the Assembly Council Hall here demanding sacking of RDPR Minister K.S. Eshwarappa for his reported remarks that the saffron flag would be hoisted atop New Delhi’s Red Fort, entered the third day today, with the Opposition party severely targeting Eshwarappa for his  alleged unconstitutional remarks.

Maintaining that the Govern-ment, apart from sacking Eshwarappa should book  sedition charges against him, the Congress legislators led by KPCC President D.K. Shivakumar and Opposition Leader Siddharamaiah refused to call off the dharna.

A day after Eshwarappa made the remark, the Congress has been on an indefinite dharna in Vidhana Soudha since Wednesday evening.

Meanwhile, as the Congress party’s indefinite dharna continued, Assembly Speaker Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri  this morning made efforts to convince the Congress leaders to withdraw the dharna. But his efforts seemed futile as the Congress was unrelenting on its demand for the ouster of  Eshwarappa.

On Thursday, former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa  and a couple of Cabinet Ministers too tried to convince the Congress Legislators, but in vain.

Meanwhile, the Karnataka Assembly Session was adjourned to Monday amidst uproar.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Congress dharna continues”

  1. Sam says:

    “Today in this country, we are discussing Hindutva and Hindu vichara (ideology). People used to laugh at one point when we said a Ram mandir will be constructed in Ayodhya. Aren’t we constructing it now? In the same way, sometime in the future, after 100 or 200 or 500 years, bhagwa dhwaj may become the national flag. I don’t know,” Eshwarappa told reporters
    So, Congress is sitting on a Dharna because Eswarappa said that between 100 to 500 years National flag may change.
    Fair enough!
    But, What were congressmen doing when Khalistanis Pulled down the national flag and hoisted the Khalisatni flag on Red fort?
    Is Congress thinking only about the future between 100 to 500 years and not concerned about today? after 100 years none of us exist!
