Not happy with anti-superstition Bill: Kagodu

Not happy with anti-superstition Bill: Kagodu
Revenue Minister Kagodu Thimmappa on Wednesday said it is difficult to implement the anti-superstition law.

He told reporters on Wednesday it is important to spread awareness among people on dangerous, superstitious practices. Only then can the Karnataka Prevention and Eradication of Inhuman Evil Practices and Black Magic Bill, 2017, be implemented effectively, he added. “I am not very happy with the Bill,” he said when his opinion was sought about the diluted version of the Bill, which the state Cabinet approved recently.

He also said the Cabinet sub-committee would review the rain situation in the state in its meeting next week. 

He said though Karnataka had received 8% deficient rain this monsoon (up to September 30), there had been severe damage to life and property due to heavy rain and flooding.

As many as 96 people had lost their lives, while 2,993 houses were damaged across the state. Water had been supplied through tankers to 659 villages in 18 districts, he added. “Though there has been deficient rainfall, there is no drought situation anywhere in the state,” he said.
