“People who vote for secular parties get better academic results”, says Karnataka minister referring to SSLC results

Traditionally, the coastal regions of the state comprising of Udupi, Dakshina Kannada and Uttar Kannada used to be the best-performed districts in terms of academic results in the state.

In what seems to be most bizarre manifestations of ‘secular’ politics, senior JDS leader HD Revanna, brother of Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy has claimed that those people who vote for secular parties like JDS in elections will get better results academically, reports TV9.

In a reference to the SSLC or Class 10 results which were announced in the state on Tuesday, HD Revanna, the de-facto Chief Minister of the state has now claimed that results in the regions of Dakshina Kannada have gone down in the state rankings as people here voted for the BJP while regions like Hassan and Ramanagara, both bastions of the JDS secured first and second position respectively as they voted for secular parties.

“Due to God’s grace and the guidance of HD Devegowda, the education in the Hassan district has improved and resulted in achieving the first rank. Ramanagara has also secured the second position. The people of Dakshin Kannada which votes for BJP has gone down to the fifth position. If they had voted for secular parties, they would have stood in the first place. This proves that education is being neglected in that region”

The Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) had released the Karnataka 10th SSLC (Secondary School Leaving Certificate) examination results on Tuesday. In a first, Hassan district miraculously stood at the top with 89.33% pass percentage followed by Ramanagara, which recorded a pass percentage of  88.49%.

Traditionally, the coastal regions of the state comprising of Udupi, Dakshina Kannada and Uttar Kannada used to be the best-performing districts in terms of academic results in the state. The region is known for the state’s best educational institutes and usually stands top in not just SSLC results but also in various other academic examinations.

It is rather shocking that HD Revanna chose to use the issue of SSLC results, which involve students who are not even eligible to vote, to push his ‘secular’ politics to target the BJP.

This is not the first time that HD Revanna has caused such a controversy. Recently, during the Mandya Lok Sabha elections, he had made an extremely insensitive and sexist remark against actor-turned-politician Sumalath, wife of MH Ambareesh. HD Revanna had made shocking remarks over the widowhood of Sumalatha by questioning Sumalatha’s intent to contest polls just after her husband’s death causing huge embarrassment to CM HD Kumaraswamy.

Last year, HD Revanna was also caught throwing biscuit packets at the flood victims who were catching them hungrily. It was reported that some of the people declined to eat the biscuits which were thrown at them, while some others ate the biscuit packets as they were hungry and desperate.
