DCC demands legal action against Kalladka Prabhakar

DCC spokesperson A C Vinayraj said that a legal fight would be initiated against RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat for speaking ill about Minister U T Khader.

Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, he said that Bhat has used singular words to refer to Minister Khader and has levelled allegations against the minister. "We are mulling over approaching the court to cancel the bail given to Prabhakar Bhat for rendering provocative speeches. All efforts are being made to collect details on the cases for which Bhat received bail."

Stating that people of the district need peace and harmony, Vinayraj said that provocative speeches amount to violation of model code of conduct as well. There is a need to file a non-bailable case against Bhat. A complaint will be submitted to the Election Commission and Deputy Commissioner in this regard.

"The upcoming election is based on development versus negative publicity. In the last elections, people supported and voted for the Congress as the people of the state were fed up of the BJP government. The BJP-led Central government has failed to fulfill the promises made during the election. In spite of a steep fall in the price of arecanut and rubber, the local Parliamentarian has failed to bring it to the notice of the Centre and raise the issue in the parliament. The Centre has forgotten its promise on support price for arecanut, he said. During the Parliament elections, BJP leaders had promised a reduction in the prices of essential commodities. The BJP had raised its voice against rise in price of petrol and diesel during the UPA regime. Now, in spite of a decline in the price of crude oil in the international market, the price of petrol and diesel has not reduced. Why are the BJP MPs not raising their voice?" he asked. He accused the BJP of engaging in cheap politics in the name of cow and deceased persons.

The BJP, which has been assuring of implementing the anti-cow slaughter bill in Karnataka, has failed to bring in a uniform act in this regard. There is no prohibition of cow slaughter even in the BJP-ruled neighbouring state of Goa, he said.
