Teachers, graduates should teach lesson to BJP: Poojary
Senior Congress leader B Janardhan Poojary has questioned the State government if it is sleeping over various issues threatening the social fabric of the society.
Addressing the news conference on Friday, Poojary said that in the Legislative Council polls, the voters, who are the teachers and the graduates should teach a lesson to the BJP.
“The teachers are the ones who teach the little children the lessons of righteousness. These teachers while casting votes must see to it that their votes go to deserving candidate,” he said adding that the BJP government at the State which has been facing charges of corruption must be ousted at the earliest by the voters.
He said that though self declared god man Nithyananda Swami of Bidadi has been exploiting the masses in general and women in particular, the State Government has not initiated any action against him.
“The State government is acting like a spineless entity, which is scared of initiating action against him. He must be booked under Goonda Act and all the assets amassed by him through illegal means must be confiscated,” he demanded adding that the Law and Order situation in the State has gone wayward. He questioned the reason behind the silence of the Chief Minister and the Home Minister in the Nithyananda issue.
Taking on Team Anna and the protests staged by the team pushing for an effective Jan Lokpal, Poojary questioned as to why the Team has not been uttering a word against the corruption prevailing in Karnataka and against the fact that in a State like Gujarat Lokpal has not been appointed since last 10 year.
Responding to the statement of the JD(S) that Congress leaders are like ‘paper tigers’ plunging into action only during the elections, Poojary said that the statement has certain degree of truth in it. He ruled out the news making rounds that his name has been recommended for the post of KPCC Chief and said that the position is not vacant at present.
