DHARWAD: Protesting the pro-naxalite stand of the Kannada Sahitya Parishat (KSP) president Dr Chandrashekhar Patil, the Dharwad unit members of the Akhila Bharathiya Vidyarthi Parishat (ABVP) took out a rally here on Friday. The protestors formed a human chain at the Jubilee Circle and raised slogans against Champa.
ABVP organising secretary Prakash Kattimani alleged that Champa converted the recently concluded Kannada Sahitya Sammelana in Shimoga into a naxalite convention and had insulted the Kannadigas by providing opportunities to Gauri Lankesh and Vittal Hegde.
Santosh Devaraddi, Sagar Nidvani, Sharanu Angadi, Shivanand Deshnur and Shivasomanna Nittur led the agitation.
