Mangaluru, July 20, 2017:  MLC and Chief Whip of State Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza has come down heavily on Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje who had included a living person  in the list of  23 people who were  killed in  cases of communal hatred across  the state. The MP had submitted the list in a letter to  Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh demanding an NIA probe into the same.

Ivan who spoke to reporters here on July 20,  Thursday  demanded Shobha’s resignation and accused her of trying to create communal unrest. "The BJP thinks it can win votes  through communal instigation," said Ivan.  By furnishing false information, Shobha has hurt the sentiments of people of the district, he said and demanded an apology from her  and also asked her to quit her  MP  position.

Pointing out that the Congress never staged a protest after the murder of Karopady GP Vice President Jalil Karopady as it did not want to resort to violence, Ivan said contrarily the BJP had violated the Section 144 to stage protest in Bantwal.

Ivan also questioned why Shobha’s list did not include the names of RTI activist Vinayak Baliga,  Praveen Poojary, Harish Poojary and others who too were murdered. He even pointed out that Shobha’s list did not have the names of members of any other community and questioned  if she was an MP only for one community.

A booklet highlighting the achievements of  MLC Ivan D’Souza was released on the occasion by District Congress President  Harish Kumar.
