Daijiworld Media Network – Mysuru (EP)

Mysuru, Oct 10: “Celebration of Tipu Jayanti is against the culture of the land. Though JD(S)-Congress is a coalition government, celebration of Tipu Jayanti should be stopped,” urged Mysuru-Kodagu constituency MP Pratap Simha.

Speaking at a programme after offering puja to Chamudi deity and inaugurating Dasara, he said that the celebrations of Dasara is a gift of Mysuru Arasas.

“Tipu Sultan was responsible for the blood shed of such a family. Respect Mysuru kings at least now. Stop Tipu Jayanti at least during your term,” he requested chief minister Kumaraswamy who was on the dais.
