Karnataka Government (through Karnataka police), has banned VHP Chief Dr Pravin Togadia from entering Bengaluru, Udupi, Hasan, Chikkamagalur and Mysuru. Dr Togadia was expected to adress mega rallies at all these places. VHP strongly condemned this move by state govt, alleging a political conspiracy.
Here are few lines, the opinions by Dr Pravin Togadia shared with Vishwa Samvada Kendra, Karnataka.
Today (on March 9) Karnataka police went to my old home (which I have left over 10 yrs ago!), then to VHP office & my hospital at Karnavati or also called Ahmedabad of Gujarat. (The Hospital*, which I had donated to a trust run by VHP very long time back while leaving everything to work for Hindus!). The police went to all these places ‘hunting’ for me just to serve a notice of banning me for the rally at Mysore!
This is absolutely horrible & it is hounding an individual personally with some personal vendetta! I am surprised & shocked with such a strange behaviour of an experienced Chief Minister like Shri Siddaramaiah! If he wanted to ban my entry (as he did in Bengaluru & Udupi!), he could always give the notice to / at VHP Karnataka office. Sending police all the way from Karnataka to Gujarat (and, Gujarat police accompanying them to all these places!)…all seems quite strange.
Well, such is Kaliyuga!
No wonder, I was harassed by Karnataka police on way from Hosur (Tamil Nadu) to Bengaluru Airport at 01.00 am at night despite Tamil Nadu police escorting me objecting to the Karnataka police strange behaviour then too!
