Mangaluru, Dec 26, 2019:  DK District in-charge Minister and State Minister for Ports and Fisheries Kota Srinivas Poojary has said that the State Government was only in favour of  justice and  was neither favouring the Police Department nor the protestors.



He was reacting to the recent police firing on CAB protestors in Mangaluru. Addressing press persons at the BJP office on December 26, Thursday, Poojary said   opposition leaders Siddaramaiah, Dinesh Gundurao,  U T Khader and  Kumaraswamy must  first   introspect  before making statements.

He questioned whether stoning, gheraoing police station and attempting to break into an ammunition shop were peaceful means of protest.

He also said that the police themselves decided on firing after taking stock of the situation.
