Mangaluru, Mar 14: Congress veteran and former union minister has threatened his party high command that he would contest as a rebel candidate from Dakshina Kannada if the party gives ticket to M N Rajendra Kumar, President of South Canara District Central Co-op Bank Ltd.

82-year-old Poojary, who in the past has served as the General Secretary of All India Congress Committee as well as President of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee, had registered successive victories in four Lok Sabha polls in Dakshina Kannada before facing five back to back defeats in the same constituency against different BJP candidates.

Speaking to media persons today here, the Billava stalwart said that even though the Congress has not considered him while short-listing the names of the aspirants from Dakshina Kannada, he would meet incumbent Congress supremo Rahul Gandhi and former supremo Sonia Gandhi within a couple of days and demand ticket for the 2019 polls.

He said that he was aware that there were many aspirants from Dakshina Kannada such as B Ramanath Rai, Rajendra Kumar, B K Hariprasad and Vinay Kumar Sorake. However, he said that at any cost the party should not field Rajendra Kumar, who according to him is corrupt.

Poojary also opposed MLC Ivan D’Souza’s candidature. “I am sure D’Souza will not get the ticket and if he gets, I will contest against him too,” he said.

“If the party ignores my plea and fields Rajendra Kumar, then I will for sure contest independently,” warned Mr Poojary. However, he did not clarify if he would rebel against the party even if it fields a candidate belonging to his own Billava community.

Cong never took firm stand over Ram Mandir fearing loss of Muslim or Hindu votes: BJP

Bengaluru, Aug 8: Congress is confused on the Ram Mandir issue and in dilemma to take a firm stand fearing loss of Muslim or Hindu votes, according to BJP leader and Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi.

"Congress opposed BJP's stand on constructing Ram Mandir in Ayodya, it called Lord Ram fictional and even decided to break the Ramsetu. Now, Congressmen are speaking the other way. Congress cannot think beyond vote bank politics which is in its DNA itself. Congressmen think that they are born to be in power," he said while speaking to media persons. 

He said that BJP is all for constructing a grand Ram Mandir peacefully and legally, due to its conviction and not for politics. Same was the case with the revocation of Article 370 for Jammu & Kashmir. Anti-national activities have comparatively come down now. 

Some people do not want everything going smoothly in the country, and Congress and Asaduddin Owaisi are among them, Joshi opined, adding that the Congress is merely frustrated.

Shivamogga, Aug 5: Karnataka Minister KS Eshwarappa on Wednesday hailed the laying of foundation stone (bhoomi pujan) for a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya and said "Kashi Vishwanath and "Krishna Janmasthan temples have to be liberated".

"It is a good day that the foundation stone for Ram Temple has been laid. A beautiful temple will come up, but there are Kashi Vishwanath and Krishna Janmasthan temples which have to be liberated," Eshwarappa said.

The minister said that there is a "sign of slavery" at Krishna temple in Mathura and Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi.

"The whole nation is dreaming of Shri Krishna temple in Mathura and Kashi Vishwanath temple. I have visited the two temples. 

There is a sign of slavery. Mosques are there at holy places. When I visited the place at Mathura, I witnessed the wall. When we look at the wall, we feel like we are still slaves," he said.

"While visiting Kashi, there is also a structure of slavery. Dream of Hindus is fulfilled in Ayodhya. One day, it will be fulfilled in Mathura and Kashi. Mathura Sri Krishna and Kashi Vishwanath will be freed and temple will be built," Eshwarappa added.

The Places of Worship Act, enacted in 1991, says that religious character of a place of worship existing on the August 15, 1947 shall continue to be the same as it existed on that day. The Act kept Ayodhya case out of its purview.
