Bengaluru: BJP Yuva Morcha workers took up a 'cleansing' programme by using 'gau-mutra (cow urine)' to purify the place that was the venue of a programme attended by actor Prakash Raj organised by Leftist thinkers.

The programme was held over the weekend at the Raghavendra Mutt in Sirsi in coastal Karnataka. Apparently, Prakash Raj criticised the Uttara Kannada MP and Union Minister Anant Kumar Hegde in his speech which did not go down well with the BJP Yuva Morcha.

Thus on Sankranti day, many of the BJP Yuva Morcha workers, led by the local city unit head Vishal Marate, thought it fit to 'cleanse' and 'purify' the entire area where the programme was held and the stage used by the actor for his address.

"These self-proclaimed intellectuals have brought in impurity in our religious place, by holding their programme here. In fact, all of Sirsi town has become impure because of the visit of these people who insult Hindu gods and who endorse beef-eating," said Marate.

Society will not forgive such "anti-social Leftist thinkers", Marate added.

Not the one to buckle under the pressure, the actor asked if the "cleaning and purification service" will follow him wherever he goes.



The programme was titled 'Our Constitution, Our Pride'.

Prakash Raj has been a trenchant critic of the BJP and has constantly raised questions about the important matters of the day. He has not shied away from confrontation and debate.
