Mandya: MP Sumalatha Ambareesh from Karnataka on Thursday flayed the decision of the Karnataka Chief Minister to remove erstwhile Mysuru ruler Tipu Sultan from school textbooks.

Opposing the move of BJP Government vehemently, she said: “Any unilateral decision taken without discussing with those who matter is also unfair.” Speaking to media, Sumalatha added: “Nobody is cent per cent sure about the good and bad in the history. Some are based on fiction too. Hence, it is better advised to take decisions on such contentious issues only after eliciting the opinions of experts on the subject.”

Sumalatha also voiced against the reported move of the NDA government to sign the regional comprehensive economic partnership (RCEP) agreement, announced to safeguard the interest of farmers.
