CM defends clamping of prohibitory order

 Karnataka Government today defended clamping of prohibitory orders around Vidhana Soudha (state secretariat) in the city on the occasion of Congress's protest against crumbling law and order situation and other issues tomorrow.
"On the law and order maintenance issue, I have given a free hand to police officials. This is not the right time to hold such protests near Vidhana Soudha in the wake of threat perception", Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa told reporters here.
"I appeal them (Cong leaders) to hold their protest on a peaceful note for which I have no objection. They are free to express their openion. I have also come to this stage after carrying on protests on various pro-people issues", he said.
Congress leaders have flayed clamping of the ban orders and said they were ready to face consequences.
During the recently concluded legislture session, opposition Congress and JDS did not made any grave charge on law and order front, he said.
The Chief Minister said the government had decided to convene a 15-day legislature session during November and the opposition could bring up any issue including Bangalore-Mysore express highway and coal purchase for debate.
The date of commencement of the session would be decided after consulting with presiding officers, he said.

Yeddyurappa said the name of the retired High Court judge who would head the judical inquiry commission to go into the purchase of imported coal by the government would be finalised in a couple of days.
"I am also ready for a debate on Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project. When the former Prime Minister H D Devegowda makes some comments against my Government, he should also have borne in mind several welfare programms initiated by me", Yeddyurappa hit back at Gowda, who yesterday demanded a special session to debate the issue.
Yeddyurappa said he was willing to meet Gowda for an hour and discuss with him on issues pertaining to the state. However, he declared that "hereafter I will try to avoid reacting to his (Gowda"s) criticism".
This is for the second time Yeddyurappa is announcing such a resolution after he became Chief Minister.
