Bengaluru, Jan 24: Conveying his "best wishes" to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his 'Bharat Jodo Yatra', former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda on Tuesday complimented him for fighting hatred and violence by spreading the message of harmony among people.

The JD(S) supremo has also expressed his inability to participate in the concluding function of the Yatra in Srinagar on January 30.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge has invited leaders of several like-minded parties to join the concluding function in Srinagar.

In a letter to Kharge, thanking for the invitation, Gowda said, "It is appropriate that the function is being organised on the day the father of the nation (Mahatma Gandhi) attained martyrdom."

"I may not be able to attend the function in person, but my best wishes are with Rahul Gandhi. He is fighting hatred and violence and has walked 3,500 kms from Kanyakumari to Kashmir spreading the message of harmony among people.

Please convey my deep appreciation to him," the 89-year-old leader said.

Bengaluru, Jan 26: "In the next 25 years of the golden period of Amritkal, it is our duty to construct a respectable and developed India, which will make our nation the crown of the world," said Karnataka Governor Thawarchand Gehlot on Thursday.

Addressing the public on the occasion of the 74th Republic Day celebrations at the Manekshaw Parade Ground in the city on Thursday, Gehlot emphasised the citizens' commitment to strive for the country's development and celebrate its achievements.

Calling Karnataka one of the progressive states in the country, he provided a brief update of the 14 schemes implemented in the state as part of the 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav' programme. These schemes and programs range from employment generation, agriculture, housing, education, and health, to entrepreneurship, industry, women empowerment and more. 

"Karnataka stands fourth in the latest SDG India Index report 2020-21," the Governor said, adding that it retains its position as the most innovative state and is the best performing state under the Startup Ranking of the states by Government of India. 

"I have faith that all of you will not just take active part in public life, but also encourage everyone to contribute to our nation's progress," he said. 

Gehlot urged citizens to work together for the health and prosperity of the state. "Let us resolve to strengthen the sovereignty, unity, and prosperity of the nation and move forward," he said. 

Speaking after paying tributes to the martyrs at National War Memorial, Chief Minster Basavaraj Bommai wished the people on the occasion of RD celebrations.

Mangaluru, Jan 19: Dharmendra, the general secretary of the Karnataka state unit of Akhil Bharath Hindu Mahasabha, who is reportedly mulling contesting from Mangaluru North constituency in 2023 assembly polls, has raised voice against the reservation policy of Basavaraj Bommai led BJP government. 

Speaking to media persons here, the Hindutva leader said that movement against reservation will be carried out shortly. A meeting of those who oppose reservation will be convened in Mangaluru to decide on the future course of action, he added.

Already, anti-reservation committees have been constituted in 30 districts in the state and a protest is being planned at the Freedom Park in Bengaluru. He said that if the Congress divided the country on the basis of religion, the BJP is dividing Hindu society in an organised manner through reservation, which is against the constitution.

Dharmendra said: “Some mutt heads are engaged in a protest demanding reservation to a particular caste, and the BJP government is heeding to their demand and is announcing reservation.

The question is whether the act of mutt heads is justifiable.” He said the elected representatives have to be taught about reservation as envisaged by Dr B R Ambedkar in the constitution. Ambedkar wanted to give reservations only to the suppressed class for a few years to bring them to the mainstream of society.

Instead of allowing people to lead a dignified life with self-respect, the government is making them beg for quota, which is condemnable. He accused the BJP of using reservation for vote bank politics and to gain political mileage. ABHM is also considering approaching the high court in this regard.

Meanwhile, Mahasabha has decided to field candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in all constituencies in DK district. Dharmendra is likely to contest from Mangaluru North constituency.
