The Karnataka Government conducts Tipu Sultan Jayanti every year and there is a controversy going around it since couple of years. Central Minister Hegde has written a letter to the Karnataka Government asking it not to invite him to the celebrations. This has triggered the controversy and CM Siddaramaiah has fired on the central minister asking him it is not right on the part of the persons in ministry posts to write such letters. Karnataka Government clarified that it would follow the protocol and left the choice of coming or not coming to the event to the minister.
