The video clip of Karnataka Environment Minister Ramanath Rai directing Dakshina Kannada SP to arrest RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat for the recent communal clashes has irked pro-Hindu groups in the district.

Activists of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal, on Monday, briefly blocked the road at PVS circle in Mangaluru, protesting Rai’s speech.

The activists, who had blocked the road, began shouting slogans and waving flags, alleging that the Minister was abusing his power to get “innocents like Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat arrested for no reason at all.”

Angry protesters also called for Rai’s resignation and also demanded that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah sack the Minister if he refuses to step down.

As news of the road block spread, the police intervened and arrested the protestors in a few minutes, ensuring that the traffic flow was not affected.

VHP and Bajrang Dal leaders including Sharan Pumpwell and Bhujanga Kulal were detained by the police.

“The protest was organised without seeking permission from the police, and hence the protesters were arrested under the orders of the DCP. We have deployed security in the area,” Mangaluru Police Commissioner TR Suresh said.

Also, in Bantwal taluk, the BJP’s SC Morcha district President, Dinesh Amtoor, filed a complaint with the Bantwal town Police on Monday. In his complaint, Amtoor has accused Rai of making provocative and libelous statements and has requested the police to arrest Rai.

Meanwhile, in Kundapur, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal carried out a protest at Shastri Circle and demanded Rai’s resignation.

“The Congress party, which put people seeking justice behind bars during the emergency 42 years ago, is exiting the country now. It has been misusing its power in the state for four years. Now, Ramanath Rai, who holds considerable power, is pressurizing the SP to arrest Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat by framing him under some sections of law. This has to be c…
