Mangaluru: The rightwing outfits have clarified that they will not be observing a bundh on Friday, November 13. However, to condemn the state government’s move to celebrate Tipu Jayanti and the death of Kodagu VHP leader Kuttappa, roads will be blocked from 11 am – 12 pm throughout Karnataka in all the district and taluk centres, the leaders of Vishwa Hindu parishad and Bajrang Dal, Jagadish Shenava and Sharan Pumpwell informed.

CM should resign: VHP

“The state government is responsible for all the tension and unrest. All untoward incidents have been taking place due to Siddaramaiah’s vote bank politics. Innocents like Prashant Poojary and Kuttappa were killed owing to the same reason. Siddaramaiah should own moral responsibility and resign,” Sharan Pumpwell demanded.
