MP Vishwanath blames police for double murder

State Government has failed to maintain law and order

Addressing mediapersons here on Tuesday, he said that police failed to initiate action immediately after the kidnapping took place. He said that parents of the two students had to run around in order to register a complaint.

He alleged that despite repeated requests from the MLA, the Superintendent of Police and Police Commissioner failed to register a case. Venting his ire against the police department, he said that due to this two precious lives were lost.

 Lashing out at the State Government, he said that law and order had collapsed in the State and murder and dacoity cases were increasing. The Government had failed to protect the interests of the people, he added.

Taking a dig at Home and Transport Minister R Ashoka, he said that most of the people don’t know the name of the minister in charge of the home ministry.

“If a real estate industrialist is made the home minister, then how can state be peaceful,” he questioned.

He accused the home minister of running a real estate business with the connivance of DCPs and ACPs in Bangalore. He said that no investigation has been carried out until now. Demanding the state government to initiate investigations at the earliest, he said that Dy SP Mudduswamy of Hunsur should be suspended at the earliest for failing to save the youngsters.

Even though Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa announced recently that he would give good administration in the state, but theft cases are increasing in several cities including Mysore, Chitradurga and Bellary. Despite increasing crime in the state, the government has failed to take any measures to tackle the issue, he added.

Gupta transfer

On transfer of former deputy commissioner Harsh Gupta, he said that it was done due to pressure from land grabbers and real estate mafia. He also blamed the RSS for Gupta’s transfer.

Vishwanath said that Gupta had been reclaiming land in a strict manner, due to which he was transferred.

Slamming the chief minister Vishawanth said, “We are being ruled by B S Yeddyurappa, but he is being ruled by RSS.” He said that plans are being made by government to hand over thousands of acres of land, due to the state’s commitment at the Global Investors’ Meet.

Calling upon Medical Education and District In-Charge Minister S A Ramdas to introspect about the developments in the district, he urged the incumbent deputy commissioner to continue reclaiming land that belonged to the government.

He said that he would produce documents about the involvement of police officers and RSS in real estate business. Former syndicate member H A Venkatesh, former Karnataka Exhibition Authority President R Raghu and Youth Congress’ Shaukath Ali were present.
