The city will play host to a State-level convention of pro-Hindutva organisations. The event aims to bring together various outfits on a single platform.
National president of the Sri Ram Sene Pramod Muthalik told presspersons here on Saturday that the State-level convention would be held here from November 8 to 10.
The convention will deliberate on various pro-Hindutva issues and also chalk out plans for taking the ideology further. It would be based on similar conventions held in the last two years at Goa by organisations like Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Sri Ram Sene, Sanathan Samsthe and others. The convention will be held at Vasavi Mahal behind the new KSRTC Bus Station here and inaugurated by Banjara seer Sevalal Swami.
With the 2014 polls just around the corner, the appeasement of Muslim voters has intensified, Mr. Muthalik alleged.
The State launched the ‘Shadi Bhagya’ scheme to release Rs. 50,000 each for the marriages of young Muslim women. “It has also launched another scheme to give Rs. 2 lakh for Muslim youths to purchase vehicles and take up self-employment in the tourism sector,” he charged.
A rehabilitation camp for the youth would be held by the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti in Bagalkot, from November 12 to 18, according to Mr. Muthalik.
