Karnataka govt not ensuring law & order: Rajnath Singh

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday slammed the state government for its failure to solve the Gauri Lankesh murder case and accused it of not maintaining law and order in the state, especially Bengaluru.

"Social activist Gauri Lankesh was killed...BJP workers Rudresh Goudar and Paresh Mesta were killed...What the government is doing here?.. No concrete step was taken to bring the killers to book," he said, addressing the second leg of BJP's Nava Karnataka Nirmana Parivarthana Yatra in Bengaluru.

Bengaluru is the IT capital of the country. But the Congress government has failed to ensure safety of people. "I assure you that a thorough probe will be conducted into the Gauri murder case and the culprits will be punished if the BJP is voted to power in the next election...All goons will be sent to jail," he said.

The Union minister accused the Siddaramaiah government of dividing society on caste and communal lines and sought to know why it chose to celebrate Tipu Jayanti, ignoring many other great personalities. "It is an effort to polarise society. Why the government is not celebrating Kittur Rani Chennamma Jayanti? Why not celebrate Kempe Gowda Jayanti?...Why not celebrate Jayanti of Sir M Visvesvaraya?" he sought to know.
