Bengaluru, (DHNS): Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has accused the BJP leaders of instigating communal violence in Dakshina Kannada district.
Speaking to reporters at Mysuru Airport in Mandakalli near here on Friday, the chief minister said BJP leaders, including party state president B S Yeddyurappa, MPs Shobha Karandlaje and Naleen Kumar Kateel are fomenting violence for political gains.
“Yeddyurappa and Kateel have said that the state will be up in flames if RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat is arrested. Why are they mentioning Bhat’s name? Did I tell the police to arrest him? Dakshina Kannada District in-charge Minister B Ramanath Rai has directed the police to arrest those who try to disturb communal harmony,” Siddaramaiah said.
“BJP members are indulging in destruction of the state while we (the Congress) are rebuilding it with constructive activities. It has become a habit for the BJP to instigate violence,” he said.
Asked about the BJP’s allegation that former IPS officer Kempaiah has been tasked with monitoring law and order in Dakshina Kannada district, the chief minister said that Kempaiah is only an advisor to the Home minister.
Director General and Inspector General of Police, two IGPs, who had earlier worked in Dakshina Kannada, and an ADGP are camping in Mangaluru monitoring the law and order situation. The situation is now totally under control, he said.
Reacting to the BJP’s comments that the law and order has collapsed in the state, Siddaramaiah said that the real law and order problem is in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, where the BJP is the ruling party.
