Kalburgi (The Hindu): Replace it with a celebration of A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s life: Yatnal. The former Union Minister Basangouda Patil Yatnal has urged the State government to withdraw its decision to observe Tipu Jayanti from next year. Addressing presspersons here on Saturday, Mr. Yatnal accused the former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who began observing Tipu Jayanti, of trying to appease a section of society.
He demanded Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy celebrate the birth anniversary of the former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.
By maintaining a distance from the Tipu Jayanti celebration, Mr. Kumaraswamy has clearly expressed his opinion about the decision, he said.
Taking exception to Congress leaders making personal attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mr. Yatnal issued a stern warning to Congress leaders and President Rahul Gandhi not to cross the limits of public decorum or else they would have to pay for it.
Replying to a question, Mr Yatnal said that the Congress’ efforts to forge a grand alliance to defeat the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha is futile.
“How will a grand alliance work without a Prime Ministerial candidate?” he asked.
