Mangaluru: Former Union minister and Member of Parliament, M. Veerappa Moily, was mobbed by a group of protestor with black flags and footwear in their hands on Saturday September 12.

The agitators who were slamming the much-controversial Yettinahole river diversion project held a demonstration right in front of a function venue where Moily was an invitee.

The activists tried to stop which when Moily was about to leave. He stepped out of his car and received ten questions related to Yettinahole project from protesters who wanted him to answer them and attend discussions scheduled for September 19.

He tried to convince the activists but in vain. They alleged that Moily was responsible for Netravathi diversion and Yettinahole project even as he returned to his car. The protesters tried to stop Moily’s car and also displayed footwear and black flags. The men were arrested by policemen.

“Veerappa Moily and D V Sadananda Gowda are the two leaders responsible for Yettinahole project. We are opposed to this as it will adversely affect the environment and people in the region. Henceforth, these two leaders should not be invited to any event in the district. If they are invited we will disrupt the programme,” warned Sahyadri Sanchaya convener Dinesh Holla.
