Udupi: “Those who violently disrupt Tipu Jayanti will be booked under law,” said Dr G Parameshwar, Home Minister and KPCC President. He was speaking to the media persons during his visit to Congress Bhavan here, on November 8.
“The government has planned to observe Tipu Jayanti for his contribution in the freedom struggle. He has dealt equally with the people of all religions during his rule. Some have opposed the government’s move, which is their right, but violently disrupting Tipu Jayanti by creating communal violence will not be tolerated.”
“Communal forces have created fear in Udupi and Mangalauru. They will be effectively evicted from the society through the police department. The people of this part will lead a peaceful life after the divisive forces who mislead people are evicted from the society. The officials are instructed to hold stringent measures on the divisive forces.”
CM Siddarmaih has asked for a report from Minister Anjaneya on the alleged bribery case. The minister has said that he will furnish a report in two days. “The CM will initiate action on the basis of the report and the case will be dealt with lawfully,” he added.
The recruitment process of police constables is on, with 8000 police constables already being recruited. The department needs more constables and recruitment for this will be held soon, he added.
