Police protection for Jayalakshmi

Police protection for Jayalakshmi

Jayalakshmi

Three constables have been deputed to Jayalakshmi’s residence in Malleswaram from Saturday noon. This follows her interviews to media insisting Chief Minister Yeddyurappa drop Renukacharya from the Cabinet.

Renukacharya was in news for wrong reasons in 2007 as Jayalakshmi had lodged a police complaint alleging he had sexually harassed her and forced to marry him against her wishes. She had made a futile attempt to commit suicide. She had also filed a complaint with the State Women's Commission against the MLA. Jayalakshmi, who quit the government service as nurse is now running a nursing college and a software training centre in Kuala Lumpur.

Jayalakshmi said that she had not sought police protection and the government has given it on its own. “Police are of the view that I may be in danger if I step out. I will request the police to provide me with a gunman”, she said.

She said that she would soon begin a hunger protest in front of the CM’s residence seeking to drop Renukacharya from the Cabinet. She said about 20 women organisations have expressed solidarity with her and would be joining the protest. “I would be requesting Shobha Karandlaje also to join the protest. She lost minister’s post because of Renukacharya. How can such a person be a minister? The CM is sending wrong message to the people by having such tainted person in the Cabinet,” she said.
