Mangaluru: Former Mangaluru South MLA JR Lobo expressed outrage against MP Pratap Simha for making a derogatory statement about the Christian community at a KDP meeting.
Speaking at a news conference here, Lobo said that Mysuru MP Pratap Simha had said not to give facilities to those who wear crosses around their neck. What is the crime in wearing a cross? The wearing of a cross is a symbol of that community. No MP should have such a low-level mentality.
“Pratap Singh should apologize for his statement and he was ineligible to become a Member of Parliament,” Lobo added.
