The former Union minister and BJP MLA Basanagouda Patil Yatnal’s purported video got viral in social media where he was instructing corporators to work only for Hindus who have voted for him, and not for Muslims. He said, “I had called all corporators and have told them that they should work for Hindus and not Muslims…who have voted for me in Bijapur,” Yatnal is purportedly heard saying in the video, to which the crowd responded by saying “Hindus”.
He added to it, ” I had said no to Muslims initially…I had instructed my people that those with topi (cap)) and burkha should not come and stand in my office or beside me.”
As per reports, this incident took place on June 4th in Vijayapura and Yatnal has served as MP and as Minister of State in the Vajpayee government.
