The decision to deny permission to the Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti (MES) to hold the “Maha Melav” was politically wrong decision, according to a senior Minister.
KPCC member L.B. Karale did not appreciate the decision of the Government to deny permission to MES to hold its convention. He observed that the Government had acted undemocratically under the pressure from some Kannada groups.
Mr. Karale sought to convey that MES had no case against Karnataka or Kannadigas. They are against the States Reorganisation Commission injustice.
BJP leader Suresh C. Angadi, MP, said he and Rajya Sabha member Prabhakar B. Kore had insisted that there was nothing wrong in according permission, as the MES meet held on September 25, 2006, was peaceful.
