Vokkaliga Seer warns against destabilising HDK Govt.

June 28, 2018

Bengaluru:  Spatikapuri Mahasamsthana Mutt’s Nanjavadhuta Swamiji on Wednesday warned that any efforts to pull down the JD(S) Congress coalition Government headed by H.D. Kumaraswamy (HDK) in the State would attract backlash from the Vokkaliga community.

He was speaking at the Kempegowda Jayanti celebration organised by the Department of Kannada and Culture here yesterday.

Criticising the efforts to topple CM H.D. Kumaraswamy’s Government (HDK belongs to Vokkaliga community), the Seer said that those behind it will have to face politically adverse consequences.

“If something goes wrong with the Kumaraswamy-headed coalition government, the people behind it will have to face the wrath of Vokkaliga community.”

Exuding confidence that Kumaraswamy would continue as the Chief Minister for five years, the Seer said that it was the responsibility of Water Resources and Medical Education Minister D.K. Shivakumar to ensure that this happens. The entire Vokkaliga community should support Shivakumar in this, he said.

Chief Minister Kumaraswamy, in his address, said that a Skill Development University named after Bengaluru Founder Kempegowda will be set up in the State in the coming days.

Water Resources and Medical Education Minister D.K. Shivakumar urged the CM to name one of the Universities carved out of Bangalore University after Kempegowda.

Adichunchanagiri Mutt Seer Sri Nirmalanandanatha Swamiji and Vishwa Vokkaligara Mahasamsthana’s Kumara Chandrashekarnatha Swamiji also spoke on the occasion.

Marking the Nadaprabhu’s birth anniversary, Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Heritage Spots Development Act-2018 came into effect on Wednesday. The Act will ensure development and protection of sites belonging to Kempegowda’s period.

    Kumaraswamy appealed to the seers, “Restrict your caste feelings to your domain or else directly enter politics if you want to indulge in politics. You should guide us to tread on right path, correct us if we go wrong. Your job is to propagate the goodness of the religion, serve the people, not to indulge in politics in the name of caste,” he said.
    Someone please show this news clip to this ‘vokkaliga seer’.
