Meanwhile, condemning Amulya Leona for raising the slogan, Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa on Friday alleged that the college student activist had links with Maoists.
“As Amulya’s links with Naxalites (Maoists) were proved in an investigation by the state police, she must be punished and action will also be taken against the people behind her,” Yediyurappa said at Mysuru, about 150 kms west of Bengaluru in the southern state.
