Govt enrolling illegal Bangla immigrants in voters'  list: BSY

BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday accused the ruling Congress in the state of enrolling illegal immigrants from Bangladesh in the electoral rolls of Bengaluru for the sake of votes.

Speaking at the party's Navakarnataka Nirmana Parivarthana rally in Vijayanagar, Yeddyurappa even accused the government of providing the illegal immigrants fake identity cards to help them get enrolled in the voters' list, especially in pockets in Bengaluru where the Congress is weak.

He charged that Bengaluru Development Minister K J George and KR Puram MLA Byrathi Basavaraj have been given the responsibility of monitoring the process.

"My information is that already two lakh immigrants have been enrolled in the voters' list illegally," he said.

He said All India Congress Committe (AICC) president Rahul Gandhi was repeatedly visiting Karnataka as he had lost his "address" in his home state of Uttar Pradesh.

"The Congress won only two seats from Uttar Pradesh in the Lok Sabha elections - Amethi (represented by Rahul Gandhi) and Rae Bareli (represented by Sonia Gandhi). In the recent local body elections in Uttar Pradesh, the Congress suffered a rout in these two constituencies. The party has totally lost its base there. Perhaps, Rahul Gandhi is thinking of contesting from Karnataka," Yeddyurappa said.

Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council K S Eshwarappa dared the government to ban the RSS.

"The government says if SDPI and PFI are to be banned, then RSS too will have to be banned. Let them do it and see the consequences," he dared.
