Uproar over Sangh Parivar members' names in rowdy sheeters' list

The Legislative Assembly on Tuesday witnessed a heated discussion between the Congress and BJP on rowdy sheeters' list.

The BJP members charged the Congress government was including members of the Sangh Parivar in the rowdy sheeters' list for political reasons. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah while rubbishing the charge said that names of any innocent in the list will be removed.

The issue was raised by U B Banakar (BJP) during question hour. C T Ravi (BJP) said the Sangh Parivar members were being included in the list even for staging peaceful protests, while actual rowdies were roaming free.

Leader of the Opposition Jagadish Shettar said the government considered the BJP workers as rowdies and those who hoist the Pakistan flag as innocents.

Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy said only habitual offenders were being included in the rowdy sheeters' list. Shettar dared the government to make the list public. Siddaramaiah said, "Whatever is possible will be made public. If it is proved that innocents have been included in the list, their names will be removed."
