The state BJP on Monday stepped up its attack on state government for its "failure" to curb killing of Hindu youths.

BJP leaders led by party state unit president BS Yeddyurappa staged a protest in front of Gandhi statue in Anand Rao Circle condemning the government for not making a sincere effort to stop the killings.

Addressing the party workers, Yeddyurappa accused Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of using the murders of Deepak€ˆRao and Basheer to provoke communal feelings of people for electoral gains. Home Minister R Ramalinga Reddy did not even hold a meeting with police officers after the murder of Rao and Basheer to control the situation in Surathkal, he said.

While it was the responsibility of every government to maintain law and order in the state, the reverse was happening in Karnataka. The government itself is responsible for the deteriorating law and order situation, he charged.

BJP€ˆstate general€ˆsecretary Shobha sought to know on what grounds the government gave permission for PFI to hold its convention at Palace Grounds in Bengaluru last year.

Yeddyurappa also took to Twitter to launch an attack on the chief minister. "Siddaramaiah is indulging in communal politics. So far, 21 Hindu youths have been killed. If you have concern, then scrap the decision taken by the state government to withdraw cases against Popular Front of India (PFI)," he tweeted.
