Troubles have mounted for Union minister Pralhad Joshi, who is contesting from north Karnataka’s Dharwad constituency for the fifth time, after the head of the Shirahatti Fakireshwar Lingayat mutt, Dingaleshwar Swami, declared a holy war against him. 

Joshi is accused of sidelining Lingayat community leaders while his party has raked up the murder of a college student as “love jihad”. The News Minute’s Shabbir Ahmed spoke to Dingaleshwar Swami on why he is opposing Joshi’s re-election.
