Speaking to media persons, the minister said that nobody should play politics over such cases. Whichever be the party or organisation, they should not make statements that result in communal violence. Both the victims of the violence have been given Rs 5 lakh as compensation by the government. Already government has asked for a regional probe and also local police are investigating the case. Those involved in the violence will be punished as per law, he said.

He also assured to hold peace talks with the two communities and bring situation under control. “All necessary arrangements have been made for tomorrow’s bandh,” he said.

The Siddaramaiah government defended Tipu Sultan and said that he was a secular ruler. “He was a model king in the entire country. A section of people criticise him out of prejudice.”
