Chikkamagaluru: Her vitriolic writings against RSS in her tabloid, Gauri Lankesh Patrike, might have cost journalist an and activist Gauri Lankesh her life, said BJP MLA and former minister Jeevraj at a meeting in Koppa taluk of Chikkamagaluru on Wednesday.
The audio clip of the MLA addressing the party workers’ meet has gone viral and in the clip, Mr Jeevraj says that Gauri Lankesh had written a report headlined, “Chaddigala Marana Homa” (the slaughter of RSS). “If only she had refrained from such writings, she would probably have survived. Gauri Lankesh was like my sister and she might have written against us which is acceptable in a democracy,” he says.
Lashing out at CM Siddaramaiah, Jeevraj says that action should have been initiated against erring persons when 11 BJP/Sangh Parivar members were murdered in the state.
