Bengaluru: MyNation has learnt from highly placed sources in the BJP that, close on the heels of Tipu Jayanti celebrations being called off after BS Yediyurappa took over as the chief minister, the BJP government in Karnataka is planning to drop cases against Hindu activists who are involved in various cases across the state during the previous Congress government.
Two BJP MLAs KG Bopaiah and Roopali S Nayak have written a letter to the chief minister to withdraw cases which were filed against Hindu activists when they protested against the celebrations of Tipu Jayanti and the death of Paresh Mehta, a Hindu youth who was killed in Uttara Kannada in 2017.
