'Kiss of Love' campaign denied green signal by Karnataka police
A youths' organisation have been denied permission by Karnataka police to hold the 'Kiss of Love' campaign in Shivamogga on Valentine's Day.
Shivamogga: A youths' organisation have been denied permission by Karnataka police to hold the 'Kiss of Love' campaign in Shivamogga on Valentine's Day, February 14, as per a media report.
According to Mail Today, a local youths' organisation wanted to hold the campaign and had approached the Shivamogga district administration.
Shivamogg is a BJP stronghold.
However, Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists and the Bajrang Dal submitted memorandums to the district administration and urged them not to grant permission.
The VHP and the Bajrang Dal reportedly were of the view that the event could lead to a law and order problem.
But, as per the report, the police have not given any specific reason for denying permission to the organisers of the 'Kiss of Love' campaign.
It is being said that the event has been shifted to a different date in March.
