BJP to protest over delay in implementation of RERA

The state BJP on Thursday said the party will launch an agitation if the state government fails to implement the Real Estate Regulation Act (RERA) in the state by July 10.

BJP spokesperson and MLA S Suresh Kumar told reporters here that RERA should have come into effect from May 1 this year.

“But, it has not happened due to the failure of the state government in finalising the rules. The government appears to be dancing to the tunes of certain builders. The BJP will stage protests if the government continues to drag its feet in this regard,” he warned.

RERA is aimed at protecting the interests of the common man. The state government has not finalised the rules despite directions from Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi. It appears that the builders are more important for the Congress government than the party vice president, he added.

‘Kerala culture’

Sureh Kumar took exception to AICC general secretary in-charge of Karnataka K C Venugopal for asking the office-bearers of National Students’ Union of India, Karnataka, and the state youth Congress to adopt the Kerala model as far as strengthening the party is concerned. “Don’t impose Kerala culture in Karnataka,” the BJP leader said, adding that attacks on the RSS and the BJP workers have increased of late in Kerala.
