Bengaluru: Infosys co-founder NR Narayana Murthy's wife and philanthropist Sudha Murthy's video showing her packing relief material for flood-hit people of Kodagu has gone viral on social media.

She is seen supervising the relief material packed in bags embossed with Infosys.

The video shows Sudha Murthy opening a carton and passing on relief material to people seated on the other side of the room, besides packing material herself and supervising the packing process.

BJP leader and Union Minister DV Sadananda Gowda, among many, had shared the video on his Twitter handle and called her 'Amma' (mother) for her unassuming work.

Incessant rains had triggered floods and landslides in Kodagu, which claimed 12 lives since August 12. Restoration work has begun after the water levels receded at many areas.

Davangere: Karnataka BJP MLA from Honnali in Davangere and Political advisor to Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, Renukacharya on Monday triggered controversy with a remark targeting the Muslim community.

The BJP MLA while addressing a pro-CAA rally in Davangere on Monday termed the Muslims as traitors and targeted the community and its interests questioning what the community does at the mosques. He further alleged that the mosques are being used as a place to collect and store weapons.

“There are a few traitors who sit in mosques and issue fatwas. What is there in mosques? Do you (referring to members of the Muslim community) pray there? Instead of praying, you collect weapons. Is this why you want a masjid? Is this why you want a mosque?” Renukacharya said.

Speaking further, the MLA asserted that he will not allocate funds for the welfare of the Muslim community and would instead use it in Hindu dominated areas.

“I will resort to such politics in my taluk (referring to his constituency of Honnali) where the money allotted for Muslims can be used for betterment of the Hindus and their welfare. I will put you (Muslims) in your place and show what politics is,” Renukacharya said.
