'Act against pervs, not BJP protesters'

The BJP’s State spokesperson, S Suresh Kumar, on Friday asked Home Minister K J George to take steps to check the increasing sexual assaults on women instead of warning action against the BJP leaders if they staged a protest in front of the Suvarna Soudha in Belagavi.

Addressing reporters here, Kumar said that George had threatened action if the BJP leaders went ahead with their plan to stage the protest. He insisted that the BJP wanted to protest against the “anti-farmer” stand of the government. Instead of taking action against the opposition party, the Home Minister should first act against those involved in sexual assaults on women in Karnataka, he demanded.

Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa of the BJP has given a call to take up cudgels against the government by assembling in large numbers in front of the Suvarna Soudha on December 9.

Kumar said that sugar cane farmers were in distress and the government had failed to provide them remunerative price. It hasn’t taken any action against sugar factories that have refused to pay fairly compensate the farmers. It’s the duty of an opposition party to protest this inaction, he argued.
