The book ‘Gandhi Banda’ was termed as controversial, after it was prescribed as a text book for third semester BA courses in Mangalore University, who in turn asked the author to delete some contents of the book and reduce it to 190 pages from 400 page, after the Vishwakarma community and some other communities raised objection against the usage of some words in the book.
