Bhatkal: “The rumors about disturbance and confusion within the Congress after BJP National President Amit Shah’s arrival to the state are just lies”, said minister of food and civil supplies U T Khader.

Speaking to the press during his visit to Bhatkal on 11th August, Thursday he said, “Even if 10 Amit Shah visits Karnataka, it won’t cause any harm to the Congress party.”

He further said that no one from Congress party is going to join BJP as a result of this visit by Amit Shah. Congress is a strong and stable political party and hence, we should wait till December and find out how many people from other parties join Congress.

When asked about stopping of government grants to Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat’s schools, he said that the funds were being raised by the schools from the Kollur Mookambika temple in an illegal manner. This matter had been in the dark due to the former temple administration. But due to the creation of new administration, the matter came out into the open and as soon as the government learned about it, the reliefs were stopped. There is no political reason for the withdrawal of funds.

On being asked about the party’s influence being less in coastal regions, U T Khader said that even Kalladka Bhat can tell how strong support Congress has in coastal areas. Compared to the previous elections, this time Congress will gain more seats here.

He even said that the Congress government will see that the culprits behind Sharath murder case will be behind bars through effective police investigations and also work to bring peace in Dakshina Kannada district. He also answered stating that police are conducting an investigation, on being asked about the suicide case of Kavya from Alva High School.

Rabita general secretary Younus Kazia, Tanzeem general secretary Altaf Kharoori, Tanzeem vice-president Inayatullah Shabandari, Jali panchayat president Abdul Rahim and others were present on this occasion.
