Addressing a press conference in Bankasana village, Minister Bangarappa highlighted the urgency of maintaining decorum in politics, particularly as the election season unfolds. He sternly rebuked those engaging in divisive tactics, stating that sowing seeds of discord between religions for political gain was unacceptable.

Bangarappa called attention to Hegde's election in the last Lok Sabha polls, where he garnered the trust and confidence of the people. However, the minister lamented that Hegde has failed to uphold that trust by remaining notably absent from parliamentary proceedings.

Expressing his dismay, Bangarappa condemned the audacity of elected representatives who openly expressed intentions to alter the constitution created by Dr Ambedkar. He criticized the singular reference to the chief minister, deeming it as the "height of meanness." Urging the public to take a stand, he stressed the importance of teaching such politicians a lesson in the upcoming elections.
