Mangalore, 24 Dec 2013 :  “Gandhi family members Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi have sacrificed much for the cause of the nation and the party. They are our leaders. Congress party strongly condemns the act of damaging the banners with the portraits of these leaders,” said former union minister B Janardhan Poojari.

He was speaking after flagging off a protest rally organised by the Gurupur Block Congress Party and party leader Vijayanath Vittal Shetty at Mijar Bollechchar on December 22, Sunday to condemn the act of a few anti-social elements in destroying the banners.  Poojari handed over the party flag to Shetty to kick-start the protest rally.



Poojari said such destructive acts are not acceptable to the Congress, patriots as well as the Almighty. “The Congress party on its part has never resorted to such acts at any time. Our party wants peace in the nation and this is a protest for the cause of peace,” Poojari added.

The Padayatra  passed through Ganjimutt  and concluded at Gurupur Kaikamba. The protestors later  submitted a memorandum to the police officials at Bajpe police station.

State Health Minister UT Khader,  MLA JR Lobo, Vijayanath Vittal Shetty, Congress leader Suresh Ballal, Gurupur Block Congress President Prithviraj RK, Neelaya M Agari, UB Ibrahim, Mamatha Gatty, Celine Fernandes, Harikrishna Bantwal, Prakash Shetty Thumbay, Mithun Rai, Altaf, Abdul Azeez Basha, Krishna Amin, Ashraf and others participated in the protest.
