Mangaluru: While speaking to the reporters , home minister Ramalinga Reddy referring to the CM’s statement terming BJP and RSS as ‘terrorists’, justified the statement.
He said “The behaviour of people associated with BJP supports this notion. MPs Pratap Simha, Shobha Karandlaje, and Ananth Kumar Hegde are inflammatory in nature. They have been trying to disturb peace in the society, and in the backdrop of their statements, the chief minister has passed this remark about them“.
Reddy further stated that both PFI and Sangh Parivar have been involved with murders, and if action has to be taken, it should be against both of them. He also assured to hold discussions with CM Siddaramaiah on this issue and arrive at a suitable decision.
When asked about the issue of suicide by Dhanyashree, Reddy said that three persons including president of BJP Yuva Morcha have been arrested in this case. He wanted to know why BJP, which shouts from top of its voice at slightest opportunity, is silent in this case. He felt that everything will fall in line if BJP and Sangh Parivar remain quiet for sometime.
Recruitment of police staff personnel
Reddy said that the issue of staff shortage is being addressed and so far 1,642 PSIs and around 28,000 police constables have been appointed. Around 12,000 vacancies are pending to be fulfilled, shortlisting of candidates for which is in the final stages, he mentioned.
Mahadayi- A drama plot for BJP
Reddy criticised the BJP leaders for banking on the farmers woes and trying to capitalize on the Mahadeyi issue. Many assurances are being given by BJP leaders, few of who have even give tall speeches to resolve the issue. However it is only a drama ploy of the BJP where the show is owned by PM Modi and managed by Amit Shah. Other leaders are among the actors enacting their role in the show, he said.
Regarding a recent comment by BJP National President Amit Shah that his visit to the state was a business one, Reddy said that earlier East India Company had established its rule over the country after having come here with an intention of trade. The company then plundered our rich nation BJP is of the view that you can gain votes by spending money, but people in the state are dignified lot and will not fall to such ploys of their leaders.
