DSS demands dismissal of State Government

 The activists who walked in protest from the Travellers’ Bungalow till the office of the Deputy Divisional Officers’ pressed their demand of punishment for whoever is involved in illegal mining.

DSS President K C Rajakanth said it is necessary to have a CBI investigation held regarding illegal mining. It is definitely unjust to let the mine-owners go free when they are looting natural resources and also gaining crores of rupees.

“The State Government should take strict action against such people,” stressed Rajakanth.

Other demands

The Government is denying minorities their right to food by seeking assent for the Anti-Cow Slaughter Bill as quickly as possible.

The desire to protect cows that the Government claims to have is just an excuse of desiring, he alleged.

Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who is showing dissent towards protest is insulting the Dalits. Yeddyurappa therefore spoke disrespectfully about the Dalits in the BJP conference which had been held at Davanagere recently, said Rajakanth with displeasure.

The State Government is not working for the public. Also, it has failed to fulfill the promises it made. The Governor should immediately dismiss the Government, Rajakanth demanded and added that strict measures should be taken against the Government that has failed to function for the good of the people.

Dalit Sangharsha Samiti office-bearers Guruprasad Keragodu, Gollahalli Shivaprasad, Siddalingappa, Nanjappa, C G Gangappa, Y Ramanna and others had participated in the rally.

‘Drop mine owners from Cabinet’

Chikkaballapur, DH News Service: The Chief Minister should take steps to drop illegal mine-owners from the Cabinet, demanded former legislator A K Subbaiah.

He spoke to DHNS and said illegal mine owners have no moral right to be ministers. He too insisted that a CBI investigation of illegal mining in the state be conducted.

He expressed full support for the Congress campaign demanding investigation of the mining and appropriate action that needs to be taken.

Subbaiah also strongly opposed the Anti-Cow Slaughter Bill and said that its approval should be prevented under any circumstance. “Just as the Governor refused to approve of the Bill, the President should also refuse to sign the Bill,” he added.
