Procession

DAVANGERE: Jayalakshmi, who was alleged to have been sexually exploited by M.P. Renukacharya, now Excise Minister, took out a procession in Honnali along with many activists demanding that Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa drop him from the Cabinet. After the procession, Ms. Jayalakshmi submitted a memorandum to the tahsildar of Honnali in which she said that Renukacharya was unfit to be Minister. She was supported by many organisations such as the Brashtachara Virodi Vedike. She warned the Government that she would mobilise the support of all women’s organisations if no action was taken. — Staff Correspondent
