CM Siddhramaiah is doing a great job: Veerappa Moily

Mangaluru: Chief Minister Siddharamaiah has taken correct decision in denotification case, said former union minister Veerappa Maoily.

Speaking to the press persons here on Saturday January 24, Moily said, as promised the scandal has been handed over for judicial inquiry. Judicial inquiry is greater than CBI. If the oppositions have any documents they can submit to the commission, he added.

Formation of Bharatiya Hindu Parishat is against the principles of Congress party. We don’t agree on this, Moily said. He also stated that it is left to the party high command to take action against the founder of BHP.

Taking jibe at Amit Shah, President of BJP for his comment of Congress free India, Moily said, this is one task which even British failed to do. Shah must remember that in 1984 their party had won only two seats. The party which indulges in such statements will perish in no time, said Moily.
