No permission has been given to MES to hold the session. The MES had planned to invite Maharashtra deputy CM Chagan Bhujbal and Raj Thackrey on January 16 for the Maha Melava as a parallel session to the legislative session to begin on the same day.
“MES is playing with the sentiments of Kannadigas and Marathis. But we will not get in their way. We’ll intervene if they create law and order problems,” Yeddyurappa said.
The material brought by the MES for the said Melva was confiscated by the police.
