  1. Dear readers,

    In the last six years, the three BJP chief ministers doled out around Rs 400 crore to religious institutions for development works and other activities within and outside Karnataka.

    For 2013-14, Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar allocated Rs 132.5 crore, surpassing those made by former chief ministers D V Sadananda Gowda and B S Yeddyurappa.

    In most cases, the donations violated government guidelines issued in September 2010 that put a cap of Rs 10 lakh, Rs 25 lakh and Rs 50 lakh as the maximum amount that could be sanctioned to Muzrai temples, private temples and religious institutions respectively.

    In the presence of BJP MP Shobha Karandlaje the Kannadigas want to now were was those ‘development’ fund and does Muzari department has any audit of it?

    Why the BJP government promotes “Money Mela” to mutt rather deliver it directly to the needy?

    What Social and Religious development in City Pejawar Swamiji is talking,when he openly supports untouchability in his own society?

    Lastly, We minority needs to now his stand on religious stand from Babri Masjid demolition to the recent communal disturbances in region? What his contribution to maintaining peace in the region?

    Jai Hind
