Suresh Angadi(MP) and Sanjay Patil MLA who were in the eye of the storm after their recent support for the saffron flag have publicly apologized to the Kannada speaking people for hurting their sentiments.
The Belgaum police have filed a first information report (FIR) against BJP candidate Suresh C. Angadi and MLA Sanjay Patil in connection with hoisting of a saffron flag on the new premises of Belgaum City Corporation (BCC) and allegedly making inflammatory speeches.
These politicians are hard to be understood. Take the above example of the two BJP leaders, who came on their own at the Corporation premises and when there was a spat with the MES activists Angadi proudly took the saffron flag and demanded it’s should be put up. Once this was done the Kannada activists demanded the removal of Angadi as the candidate and succumbing to their demand made an apology.
That day they both were there to show their support for Marathi people and when Kananda people arose they turned back. My point is here not to bring forth the language bias but the mentality of the politicians in general. Tomorrow you could see Angadi speaking in Marathi and again saying that saffron flag must be hoisted. They come to ask for the votes once in 5 years and the same situation is all over the country. Now how can one believe on the BJP candidate?
May what it be, this time the elections are not as simple as they were all these years. Development issues have never come up for discussions, the whole campaign might just go off in settling this issue alone.
