According to media reports, a complaint has been registered against Thammaiah who works for a local monthly for making an indecent comment on Tipu Sultan during a program organized against the state-wide celebration of Tipu Jayanthi.
Condemning action against Santhosh Thammaiah, principle opposition party BJP launched a blistering attack on the Congress-JD(S) coalition government.
Senior BJP leader and Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje took to Twitter and slammed Karnataka government for crushing the voice of dissent.
Responding to the development, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Prathap Simha also backed Thammaiah and took a swipe at the state government’s move against the scribe.
