Siddaramaiah’s master-stroke

April 16 2018

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had proposed to grant a separate religion status to the Lingayat of the state, and now this very move is proving to be the master stroke because now 70 organisations of Lingayats have written a letter to Modi and Shah, urging them to immediately accept this proposal of Siddaramaiah and have given them a deadline to consider it as early as Wednesday. They have also threatened that if this proposal is not accepted by this Wednesday, the Lingayat vote bank will shift to Congress in the upcoming elections. At the same time BJP argues that Basavanna (12th century Lingayat philosopher) was a follower of Hinduism, but the organisations are not ready for it.
