BJP stages protests ahead of Tipu J security tightened in K taka

A day ahead of Tipu Jayanti , the BJP Friday staged protests against Karnataka government-sponsored celebrations for the birth anniversary of the controversial 18th century ruler of erstwhile Mysore kingdom, Tipu Sultan. The party, which has appealed to the government to drop the celebrations, staged demonstrations at several places including Bengaluru, Mysuru and Kodagu, in the state. The JDS-Congress coalition government led by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, last week, had said Tipu Jayanti would be celebrated on November 10 in continuation of the previous Congress government s policy, prompting the BJP to announce protests. However, Kumaraswamy is not scheduled to attend main function here to be inaugurated by Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara. The Chief Minister s Office in a statement said Friday that Kumaraswamy would not take part in any official function for the next three days in view of doctors advice. On the advice of doctors, the chief minister will take three days
