“I have observed that no worthwhile steps have been taken by the party to redress my grievances regarding the prevailing situation in the Udupi district Congress party,” Madhwaraj wrote.

Last year Pramod Madhwaraj praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for honouring Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji with Padma Vibhushan posthumously.

Madhwaraj had said that after the BJP government came to power at the Centre, the ‘trend’ of determining Padma awardees has changed.

Addressing a program in Udupi, he had said, “Earlier, there was a trend to award those who applied for the award. But after the Modi government came to power, the trend changed. We must appreciate it if somebody does good work.”
