Addressing BJP supporters in the panchayat town of Yelaburga of Koppal district today, Mr Kateel said, “We are devotees of Lord Rama, Lord Hanuman. We offer prayers and obeisance to Lord Hanuman, and we are not Tipu’s descendants. Let’s send Tipu’s descendants back home”.

Will you then send to the jungle those who are staunch followers of Tipu? Think about it. Do you think this state needs Lord Hanuman devotees or descendants of Tipu? I am issuing a challenge to those who are staunch followers of Tipu should not survive on this fertile land” he added. He also reiterated that a majority of people think that Tipu Sultan was a bigoted tyrant who forcefully converted thousands.

Slamming Congress in one of his rallies that set the tone for the election, Yogi Adityanath had said that Karnataka was the “the land of Hanuman” that was ruled by the erstwhile Vijayanagara Empire. He also attacked the erstwhile Congress government in Karnataka for celebrating his birth anniversary for two consecutive years despite several protests across the state.

Earlier this month, Kateel had courted controversy by claiming that the upcoming assembly elections in the state were about “Tipu vs Savarkar”. He had said that “the Congress allowed the celebration of Tipu Jayanti, which was not required and spoke disparagingly about Savarkar.”
