Views of religious heads to be sought

The Karnataka unit of the BJP on Monday decided to intensify its protest against Congress-led government in the State for its recent decisions to bring amendments to the Karnataka Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments Act, 1997 and withdrawal of anti cow slaughter bill.

The party core committee meeting held here, condemned the move of the Siddaramaiah government to amend the Act empowering the government to “take over the possession and management of any mutt” under various circumstances.

The meeting also deplored the State government’s decision to withdraw anti cow slaughter bill adopted by the previous BJP government.

Demanding the immediate sacking of ministers facing corruption charges in the Siddaramaiah Cabinet, the meeting also decided to intensify its protest against “tainted ministers.”

The meeting was attended by the party Karnataka incharge national general secretary Muralidar Rao, Organising Secretary Santosh, Union Fertiliser Minister Ananth Kumar, Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, BJP state unit president Pralhad Joshi, former chief ministers B S Yeddyurappa, Jagadish Shettar, former deputy chief minister K S Eshwarappa and others.

Emerging out of the meeting, Joshi told reporters that the party would convene a meeting of religious heads soon to seek their views on decisions of the government.

He said that the government was attempting to appease particular sections of society, but in the process was hurting sentiments of a large section of society.
