Former Karnataka minister to lead peace march to forest
A former Karnataka minister on Friday announced that he would venture into the forests along with 500 others on a 'peace march' to secure the release of Kannada thespian Dr Rajakumar from forest brigand Veerappan.
S Ramesh, who is also a film producer and distributor, told reporters that they would leave Bangalore on Saturday on their mission to negotiate with Veerappan.
He said the governments of both Tamil Nadu and Karnataka had been making efforts to end the hostage crisis but added that the former should redouble it.
Ramesh, also a former president of the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, expressed surprise over Tamil Nadu, in its affidavit before the Supreme Court, blaming Karnataka for not informing it of Dr Rajakumar's visit to his Gajanur farm house from where he was abducted.
