State SC/ST Congress Cell president Manjunath flays BJP Government

He was addressing mediapersons ahead of a meeting of District Executive Committee members and Block Presidents of Mysore District Rural Congress Committee, here on Sunday.

Continuing his tirade, Manjunath said that the State Government had failed to convene the SC/ST Atrocities Prevention Committee, which had to meet every six months. He said that it has already been eight months since a meeting had been convened. This shows the apathy of the government, he added.

Pointing out that mid-term elections were inevitable in the State, Manjunath said that the government led by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa had no respect for either the MLAs or Constitution or courts. He warned that the BJP will take the route of the DMK if the mid-term elections are held.

Mentioning that 18 per cent of funds reserved for SCs was being misused, he said that the State Government had failed completely.
