Bengaluru: BJP demands George’s resignation over ‘failing law and order’

Bengaluru (DHNS): BJP leader Jagadish Shettar has demanded the resignation of Home Minister K J George over “the deteriorating law and order” situation in the State.

Addressing a press conference in Bengaluru on Saturday, Shettar, the leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly, said atrocities against women were on the rise. Two gang-rapes were reported in the recent months. An honest police officer like Jagadish was stabbed to death by goons. Incidents of communal tension have been reported from Mudhol and surrounding places. A youth named Prashanth was murdered in Mangaluru, but the culprits are still at large, he pointed out.

He said anti-social elements were getting emboldened under the Congress’ rule. Honest police officers are not being allowed to function, he charged.

Shettar said either George should resign on his own or the chief minister should shunt him out of his portfolio.

Attacking former IPS officer Kempaiah, who is the advisor to George, Shettar said the Home department was run by Kempaiah. He is intervening even in departmental transfers, he said.

To support his comment, Shettar said, “In the Home department’s invitation for the inauguration of a police training school in Hubballi, Kempaiah was mentioned as the chief guest. The names of other senior officers, including that of the DGP, figured in the last page. Kempaiah is just an advisor. His role is only to advise the department.”

Shettar said he had written to the chief minister and the Assembly Speaker about the breach in protocol. But there has been no response from them so far, he added.

Referring to the visit of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, Shettar said the government had failed to come out with a package for distressed farmers. Farmers’ loans were not waived and compensation has not been given to the families of those farmers who committed suicide, he said.

  1. Bengaluru: BJP demands George’s resignation over ‘failing law and order’.

    IN DEHLI THE POLICE IS CONTROLLED BY MODI AND RAJNATH SINGH. THERE EVERY DAY MANY RAPES AND ATROCITIES ON CHILD GIRLS TAKE PLACE UNABATED. WHY THE BJP DOES NOT DEMAND FOR THE RESIGNATION OF MODI AND RAJNATH? IS THE RSS IMMUNE FROM RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS HEINOUS CRIMES? IS MODI AND RAJNATH EXEMPT FROM LAW?

    • What does our Modi Bhaktha called Rampu have to say on this NEW DEVELOPMENT by his very esteemed Swami? I still recall the times when he says that he is against the death penalty.

      THESE same jokers are so inhumane when it comes to rapes etc. No meddling Swami wants to set forth a bill in motion to introduce the death penalty for raping women and children. But for Cows…. Loooooooooooollll! I think that the BJP/RSS jokers and their MASTER remote control from Naagapoora have intentions to reduce India to Baghdadi’s Caliphate/Afghanistan/Pak/Boko Haram (from Nigeria) etc.

      And our monogrammed prophet struts around while dangling nonexistent wares in India and welcomes people to invest here. EVEN Dwarakesh wouldn’t take him seriously! ONLY a Rampa would do and does! 🙂

      AND low cost wifi for some 500K villages in India! Is this even a vision?
