Tipu Sultan descendants threaten legal action against Union Minister Anantkumar

On Sunday, the Congress tweeted pictures of state BJP leaders wearing Tipu-style turban. The Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has been in thick of controversies for his anti-Islam comments and assaulting a doctor in his district a few months ago.The government's decision to celebrate the day on November 10 previous year had drawn much criticism from the BJP and the RSS, who termed this act of the Congress as "minority appeasement". While the Opposition BJP flayed the government for patronising a programme in the name of a "tyrant" and called for debate over Tipu, another section of society hailed the decision as "historic", considering Tipu's valiant struggle against the British.

"It is being made into a political issue".

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah also took a dig at Yeddyurappa in Mangaluru. She also claimed that a majority of the district police officials had tried to convince the State government to not hold Tipu Jayanti functions in view of law and order issues, but the government was adamant on the celebrations.
