Bengaluru: Former Chief Ministers Siddaramaiah and H D Kumaraswamy have opposed the naming of a new flyover at Yelhanka after V D Savarkar.

Both have stated in their tweets that naming the flyover after Savarkar is an insult to the freedom fighters from the State.

May 28 is Savarkar’s birth anniversary, in view of this, CM Yediyurappa had nominated his name for the flyover which the CM will be inaugurating. BBMP has already approved this name for the flyover.

Siddaramaiah criticized the government’s decision and tweeted, “The decision to name the flyover after Savarkar shows that the spirit of this government is not to act as an elected government. Are you seeking the cooperation of the opposition parties for such anti-people decisions?

The decision of the State government to choose V D Savarkar for the Yelahanka flyover is an insult to the freedom fighters from the soil. Therefore, the state government should immediately abandon the decision and name the flyover after a freedom fighter from the State.”

H D Kumaraswamy too expressed his outrage in tweets, “The state government’s decision to nominate Savarkar’s name for the Yelahanka flyover is a disgrace to those who have fought for the prosperity of the state.”

“There are many great people who worked for the development and prosperity of the State before and after Independence. Their name could have been nominated for the flyover. Are any other State’s naming their flyovers after other State freedom fighters? On behalf of the people of the State, I urge the State government to take back this decision.”
