Belagavi: “BJP condemns the Opposition of some political interests to the construction of a statue of Kittur Rani Chennamma in Chikkodi City, said Former MLC Mahantesh Kavatagimath. He added that the discussions have already been held with the Deputy Commissioner and the Minister concerned regarding the permission required for the construction of the statue.
He was addressing the public gathered in front of the Municipality in Chikkodi Town in the backdrop of the stay order on the construction of Kittur Rani Chennamma statue. Kittur Rani Chennamma is a freedom fighter as well as historical figure and thus Chennamma is a role model for today’s younger generation. It is against this backdrop that the construction of Chennamma’s statue has been taken up in Chikkodi Town. The Municipality, the trade association and the Statue Unveiling Committee had decided to unveil the statue on January 16 after passing a resolution in the Municipality. But the BJP condemns the Congress leaders standing behind the construction of Chennamma’s statue and opposing it by saying that the place where the statue will be constructed through the officials is not right,” he said.
“The legal permission required for the construction of the statue has been discussed with the higher authorities. Mahantesh Kavatagimath requested that no one should be disheartened over the controversy on the construction of the statue and maintain law and order as well as not be responsible for bad incidents.
