DySP’s Suicide : Student Leader Slams Double Standards
By Special Correspondent, with inputs from Ashiq Kukkaje
Bantwal: In a statement, student Congress leader Sadiq Bareppadi has stated that the BJP should be ashamed of itself for politicizing the issue of DySP Ganapathi’s suicide and showing unruly behaviour during the assembly session, while remaining silent in the matter of DySP Kallappa Handibag’s suicide.
Recent developments have proved that some parties have been trying to make political capital over every issue. While not saying anything about DySP Kallappa’s suicide, they made a political gain in the matter of resignation of DySP Anupama Shenoy.
Now on the issue of Ganapathi’s suicide, some legislators went to the extent of rushing menacingly towards senior minister Ramanath Rai while the session was in progress. This is nothing but indiscipline and irresponsible attitude, he says.
At the same time, according to him, when an inquiry has been ordered by the government to probe into Ganapathi having named minister George and two others before his death, it is strange that the BJP is not prepared to wait until the report is received.
He also recalls that Ganapathi, while he was an inspector, had been twice suspended when the BJP government was ruling the state. Instead of consoling the bereaved family, these politicians are only playing politics.
They should first remember the sexual abuse, corruption, farmers’ suicides and other incidents that had taken place during their rule and desist from playing politics in every matter, opines Bareppadi, who is also general secretary of the All College Students’ Union.
