Mangaluru, Jan 12, 2020: The Karnataka Pradesh Mahila Congress has conducted a fact finding visit to to collect information on the December 19 police firing in the city, and decided to submit a report to President Ram Nath Kovind.
Karnataka Pradesh Mahila Congress president Pushpa Amarnath, who visited the houses of police firing victims, said on Saturday that a report on the police firing will be sent to the President of India within a day or two.
The KPCC women’s wing also demanded a judicial probe into the police firing that killed two in Mangaluru. She also lashed out at BJP MLAs and MP Nalin Kumar Kateel who failed to visit the kin of those died in the police firing on December 19.
“Why have the people’s representatives of this district, including the MP, not visited the houses of those died in police firing. Though the BJP has made ‘sab ka sath, sab ka vikas’ their slogan, in Mangaluru they have not made any efforts to help the kin of those who died in police firing. Moreover, the BJP government has registered an FIR against the dead too. Hence, a judicial probe is needed to know whether the FIR was based on facts or not,” she said.
On the Citizens (Amendment) Act, Pushpa said the BJP is trying to trigger “internal terrorism” by introducing a new law and thereby disturb peace in the country. “The home minister of the nation and the state should resign for all the unrest related to CAA and NRC protests,” she said.
Referring to the series of videos released by former Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy alleging police brutality in Mangaluru, Pushpa said, “It is evident that the Mangaluru city police had instructions to create unrest in the city. It is a hidden agenda of the BJP.”
Further, extending her support to actress Deepika Padukone, who visited the JNU campus recently, Pushpa made an appeal to people to watch her film ‘Chapaak’ that narrates the story of an acid attack victim.
