Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) president Narayana Gowda has warned of laying siege to the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha if the two controversial name boards put up by pro-Mahrashtra activists are not removed before the end of winter session.
Gowda was referring to the ‘Maharashtra Rajya’ board at the entrance of Yellur village and ‘Samyukta Maharashtra Chowk’ name board put up recently on Khade Bazaar Road in the city.
Gowda said KRV will remove both the ‘illegal’ boards if the government fails to do it on its own before the deadline.
“MES, like a terrorist organisation, is acting against Kannada and Karnataka in the border area,” he alleged. He also urged the government to book MES leaders under the Goonda Act.
Gowda said his organisation will not remain silent if the MES puts up such boards in Karnataka. He also urged the government not to permit MES to hold a convention on the first day of the legislative session.
Gowda said KRV will organise a convention at Jat in Maharashtra, where kannada speaking people are a majority.
