Dakshina Kannada: Indira Canteens of Renewing Over Congress Warns | Mangaluru News – Times of India


MANGALURU: Congress has warned BJP that its plans of renaming Indira Canteens will lead to agitations in Dakshina Kannada district.
AICC secretary Ivan D’Souza said on Tuesday that Indira Gandhi was not a leader of Congress alone.
“Indira Gandhi was a leader of the masses. But BJP national general secretary CT Ravi has been making political statements without studying history. We will send Ravi books so he can learn history. BJP has commenced a new policy of changing the names of schemes launched by previous governments. Let them launch new schemes and name them after a leader of their choice. There are several roads in India which are named after former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. But the Congress has never renamed any one of them. If BJP continues to play ‘name politics’, they it will not win next elections,” D’Souza said.
The former MLC also questioned the BJP as to why it could not change the name of Mangaluru International Airport (MIA). “BJP government is not capable of removing the name ‘Adani Airports’ at MIA,” he criticised.
On ‘hookah bar’ remark against former PM Jawaharlal Nehru, D’Souza said Ravi has no moral rights to speak about Nehru.
