Mangaluru, Aug 09, 2019: The BJP District Committee members have urged Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to withdraw the criminal cases against those who tried to prevent illegal cattle transport.
Sanjeeva Matandoor, MLA and BJP district president said that criminal cases have been registered against BJP and Hindu outfit activists who tried to prevent cattle transport. The efforts of the activists are not criminal and such cases should be scrapped, he stressed.
Matandoor called the shelving of Tipu Jayanti celebrations a laudable move by the state government. “Also, in a historical move, the Central government has revoked the special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The implementation of ‘One Nation – One Law’ makes a reality the vision of BJP founder Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, who was against two constitutions and two flags in a nation,” he added. Matandoor also said that the BJP district unit has enrolled 75,000 members so far and the target is two lakh people in Dakshina Kannada, with 25,000 members in each Assembly constituency.
“The chief minister will be urged to clear the hurdles to guarantee kumki rights to farmers. Also, the government will be asked to formulate programmes for the comprehensive development of the district through various projects including road development work,” he said.
MLAs D Vedavyas Kamath and Dr Y Bharat Shetty, BJP District Committee general secretaries Kishor Rai and Capt Brijesh Chowta and treasurer Sanjay Prabhu were present in the press meet.
