Mangalore, Feb 5:The Federation of the Dakshina Kannada Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes Unions observed a silent protest at Ambedkar Circle, here today, demanding the arrest of Vishweshwar Bhat, Editor, Vijaya Karnataka.

The Federation is protesting against the defamatory articles written by Mr. Bhat against Mr. Umeshchandra, Lecturer, Mangalore University. It has alleged that Mr. Bhat is trying to settle personal scores with Mr. Umeshchandra through Vijaya Karnataka. It has also stated that Mr. Bhat is trying to incite communal feelings and hatred against SC, STs through his writing.

The Federation has demanded that the Dharwad University should withhold the doctorate which it is planning to award Mr. Vishweshwar Bhat. It has appealed to the administrative board of the paper to relieve Mr. Bhat of his post.

If Mr. Vishweshwar Bhat does not resign from his post, a protest would be launched in the entire State against the paper. A national campaign against the publications of The Times of India group would be held if the demands of the Federation are not met, it has stated in a leaflet distributed at the venue.

Mr.Bhat brought some innovative ideas in to VK.alright.But he also trivialised it.I remember an article wherein Pratap Simha had compared sales of Anantamurty's rujuvatu with Bhyrappa's Avarana!Even Bhyrappa's admirer's like me were not amused!

Dalits should boycot Vijay Karnataka and Times of India newspapers. this will teach them a lesson. As the article said Bhat is settling personal scores..there is nothing new in this and he always used newspaper to blackmail politicians, leaders etc. Protest and boycott must be used by dalits and others with dignity to protest Bhat s articles.
