Egg attack: Congress to take out Kodagu Chalo on Aug. 26

August 19, 2022

Mysore/Mysuru: KPCC Working President R. Dhruvanarayan has said that the Congress party will take out ‘Kodagu Chalo’ on Aug. 26 to protest the egg attack and other disturbances during the visit of former Chief Minister Siddharamaiah to Kodagu yesterday.     

Addressing a press meet at Pathrakartara Bhavan this morning, he said “When former CM Siddharamaiah was visiting Kodagu to oversee the relief measures taken by the State Government in the rain-affected areas of the district and following complaints of non-payment of compensation and corruption,  he was attacked with egg, shown black flags and slogans were shouted asking him to go back. This is a Government sponsored programme. Why did the intelligence fail to foresee the event and why the Police did not take precautionary measures?” he questioned.

Charging the State Government of creating disturbances to cover up its failure on all fronts, Dhruvanarayan wondered why no precautionary measures were taken at other places after the attack on Siddharamaiah  in Kodagu.

“The Police were silent spectators. In a democracy, an Opposition Leader is equal to the Chief Minister. Kodagu is a land of warriors and has the reputation of sending one person from the family to country’s defence forces which is a sign of patriotism. In such a land, a cowardly act has been committed,” he rued.

The Congress Working President announced that the party will take out ‘Kodagu Chalo’ on Aug. 26 and disclosed that thousands of Congress party workers will participate in the protest.

MLA Dr. Yathindra Siddharamaiah, who too spoke, said that the cowardly incidents in Kodagu are an indication of BJPs ideological and intellectual bankruptcy.

H.D. Kote MLA Anil Chikkamadu said that there is a total collapse of law and order in the State and the BJP is creating communal disturbances.

    This clearly explains why Congress is losing!! When a person is murdered by privileged section of the society (you guess) in the broad day light, Siddu and his party either preaches us peace or gives the benefit of double or yell discrimination and stands by the murderers to defend their right to Kill! He has repeatedly called Modi all kinds of names and accused him as even ‘Narahanthaka’ with no proof! Now he expects all respects as an ex-CM. An egg thrown on a car can’t be termed as an assassination attempt, yet he wants us to believe it is one and hand the culprits instantaneously! I don’t know if the egg thrower wanted to kill by throwing eggs and especially when Siddu was inside the car. If that was his idea I should say he is an idiot and must be hanged not for his crime but for his stupidity! He should learn some lessons from Tippu followers who are with Siddu now who have a lot of experience in that area!
    Siddu is coming to Coorg where every child knows what Tippu did and trying to preach us about the nobility of Tippu does not fly! Just like Savarkar Photo has no place in ‘Muslim area’ as per Siddu, Coorg is Hindu area where ‘Tippu the king Massacred thousands of Hindus and converted them by the sword!
    And Siddu thinks it is government sponsored? He may even say that it was Modi who orchestrated it! That claim should make even Rahul look brainy and improve his image!
    Siddu thinks this type of statements make him the CM, Unfortunately, his rivals are not BJP but Kumaranna and DKShi and each one is much smarter than this moron!

    Hey Sunil George
    Reading your stupid rant above, I should conclude that you purchased your ‘Dr’ title, as you sound totally dim witted and an ignorant moron.
    These days , the BJP is as corrupt as Congress was, and is as dynastical as Gandhi family is. Siddu is an opposition leader, and the job of an opposition leader is to oppose. the government pointing out the issues. Look at what is happening in the US, a great democracy of Abrham Lincoln. Trump was raised on false pretence on the orders of Biden, because, Biden fears Trump will win the presidency in 2024. Hence democrats are for the humiliation of a former Republican president.
    What Siddu is suggesting is a peaceful protest. You may not like it. But that is his job. BJP will do the same. I am of the age, when I have watched Jansangh taking out marches like this in 1970s, with Vajpayee leading them. That was democracy.
    You have a country there where you either have the Turin Italian Barmaid Sonia Gandhi as your leader or the wife deserter Modi-who abandoned his wife after marriage putting her in a life time of misery as your leader.. Both choices are bad.
    Have you been to Gujarat? There Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah is running the state behaving exactly like Sanjay Gandhi under Indira Gandhi. That is BJP dynasty in action, just like Gandhi dynasty!!
    I am weary of Indian Muslims and Christians-both converted from Hindu communities in various time of Indian history, pontificating. Since, you are a Chritstain just go and see Vatican politics.. You will find out every Cardinal there is as badly behaved as Siddu is, because they are fighting to become the next Pope, jus like Siddu wanting to become the CM. The same kind of politics can be found in Anglican Christian hierarchy!
    You see Sunil George, Congress ruled the country and the state for years, and it is now BJP ruling for years. Power corrupted Congress and power has corrupted the BJP.
    Be careful Sunil George. Modi’s best friend Yogi Adityanath, the BJP CM of UP, considers Christians as infidels and not Indians as he does with Muslims!

    Hello Sunil George
    One would have thought, given that you proudly brandish your title, you would be a bit more wiser. But you are not!
    In a democracy, the ruling party and opposition parties are all rivals. Just check the term ‘rival’. It is not as if the rivals ate just JD(S) and others to Congress! That is a stupid thinking. A massive ignorance of how democracy works.
    You are a Christian. The BJP looks at you in suspicion. The BJP is a Hindu Party The Karnataka BJP CM Bommai introduced anti-conversion bill directed against both Muslim and Christian conversions. Hence, your support to them seems nonsensical. If Congress were to be in power, it is only a matter of time that the state will get Congress government, the BJP leaders will do the same.
    In India, both parties are equally bad.
    I am not sure, why you are so much exercise about what Siddramaiah said. His march should be peaceful, which was what Gandhiji did too.
    In London , Washington and Berlin , there are constant marches every week ends by pressure groups, politicians and the like. That is democracy in action.
