Ullal: “The BJP government at the centre has surrendered to the ideology of the RSS. The BJP government is looking at us as its enemy,” PFI National General Secretary Anees Ahmed has said. He was addressing a huge public gathering at the Ullala’s Ombathukere organised by Popular Front of India to mark PFI Day and Unity March.

He said PFI is not a small child and doesn’t need any lessons from RSS. Anees said, “Sometimes leaders who say they are secular also make unnecessary comments.”

A large number of Hindus in India are opposed to RSS ideologies, he said.

He said the PFI is proud of its nation. “One must understand who the real traitors are before declaring anyone anti-national.

“Amit Shah's relationship with Modi is not in good terms. They are not eligible to give people their legal rights. Their aim is to create disturbance within societies. The PFI would never bow to their ideologies,” Anees hit out at BJP.

Speaking on the occasion, Shafi Bellary, said the PFI Day was a day of exploited communities. 

He said, “The country is under the dictatorship of Hindutva and fascism.  

Out of fear, the fascist forces did not allow PFI Day to be held in Jamakhandi, he said.

SDPI State Committee member Ananda Mittabile spoke. PFI District President Ijaz Ahmed greeted and addressed the gathering.

The Unity March was held in the afternoon. PFI President Yasir Hassan presided over the event. Shafi Ballare, Ayyub, Majeed Tumbe, Akram Hassan were the chief guests.

The Unity March rally was held from Abbakka Circle. Safwan was in charge of command. PFI activists attended the Unity March event. Police force was present everywhere.

Dubai(PTI): Sunrisers Hyderabad's big-hitting opener David Warner, who has been dropped from the playing XI because of poor form, has said that he won't be seen at the stadium "again", hinting that his stint with the struggling franchise could be over.

Warner was axed last night from the game against Rajasthan Royals, which SRH won by seven wickets.

That win aside, the franchise has battled a poor run with only two wins from 10 matches, which has left them at the bottom of the points table and out of contention for a playoffs berth.

Warner's absence from the team dugout did not go unnoticed and fans wondered about his whereabouts underneath an instagram post by SRH.

Responding to the queries, Warner posted, "Unfortunately won't be again but keep supporting, please."

Warner has been woefully out of form this season, having accumulated just 181 runs in eight matches so far at an average of 24.37. His strike rate, at present, is the lowest in all his IPL stints, making it his worst season in the league.

The 34-year-old joined SRH in 2014 and captained the side to its maiden IPL title in 2016.

Dropped from the leadership role after the 2018 ball-tampering scandal, he came back as skipper in 2020.

He was again removed as captain during the first leg of this season due to the team's poor run and differences with Team Director Tom Moody and head coach Trevor Bayliss.

"We can't make the finals, so we made a decision that we want the youngsters to experience not just the matches, but time at the ground and around the set-up," Bayliss had said at the post match press conference on Monday when asked about Warner staying back at his hotel room.

IPL sources have revealed that he will be released at the end of the season and go back to the auction pool.
