Mangaluru: The Federal Bank Ltd. on Wednesday assured action against a person who reportedly called for Muslim genocide from his Facebook account while claiming himself to be an employee of Federal Bank in his profile. 

According to the reports, the person, identified as Vishnu Prasad Niddaje, while commenting on the recent controversy of alleged imitation of Koragajja deity in Vitla during a wedding-related function had asked “Don’t you remember when the last riot happened in Gujarat?”

“ Ours is Krishna philosophy. We take a thousand beatings from them and then give back one like Godhra riots which silence them for the next 20 years. I think this count is not complete in Vitla and Mangalore. They are now provoking us for doing something like that” he reportedly wrote in the FB Post. 

In another post, he indirectly called for a burning car, shop, and house of the bridegroom who, according to him, had allegedly imitated Koragajja deity.

The issue was brought to the notice of Federal Bank by a Twitter user who shared screenshots of the post and the profile of Vishnu with the official handle of the bank. PFI organisation had filed a complaint at Vitla Police station against Vishnu Prasad Niddaje.  

Reacting to the development, the Federal Bank responded “Federal Bank, as a responsible organization, never encourages or promotes any indecent, violent, undesirable or questionable acts on the part of our employees. We would like to make it clear that we have a zero tolerance policy towards any such acts. We disassociate ourselves from the alleged aggressions and the same is being examined for suitable corrective measures.” 

Vishnu Prasad Niddaje has since deleted the post and his account from Facebook.

Meerut (UP) (PTI): Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) president Tejasvi Surya claimed on Tuesday that the BJP will get more seats in next year's Lok Sabha polls compared to the 2019 general election.

He also said the "double-engine" government led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has changed the face of Uttar Pradesh.

Addressing a BJYM convention in Meerut, Surya said, "The BJP will get more seats in the 2024 polls than in 2019 and (Prime Minister Narendra) Modiji will score a hat-trick for a third innings."

The member of Parliament from Bangalore South also alleged that before 2014, when the Modi government came to power, there was a misrule in the country, adding that nine years of the Modi government have proved to be more effective than the 70 previous years. People's welfare is the topmost priority of this government, he said.

Surya said the "double-engine" government has changed the face of Uttar Pradesh, adding that thanks to Prime Minister Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the law-and-order scenario of the state has also improved.

"Double engine" is a term often used by BJP leaders to refer to the saffron party being in power at the Centre as well as in a state.

Surya said under Modi's leadership, India has got respect at the global stage, which is only increasing.

The prime minister is trying to take the country to new heights, he added.
