Bengaluru, Jan. 19: Karnataka Pradesh Youth Congress Committee president, M. S. Raksha Ramaiah on Wednesday said that there is confusion prevailing among BJP leaders themselves over the ‘night curfew’ decision taken by the Karnataka Chief Minister, Basavaraj Bommai.
Mr Ramaiah told reporters that the statement made by Central BJP Leaders and State BJP leaders contradict each other on imposition of night curfew in the state.
“The contradictory statements issued by both Central and State BJP leaders over the imposition of night curfew has led to chain of confusion in various states including in Karnataka,” he emphasised.
He alleged that the Central leaders’ statements against imposition of night curfew has once again proved that the central BJP leaders are not very confident of their own party Chief Minister, Basavaraj Bommai in the state. “The state under Mr Bommai’s rule is shrouded in confusion and chaos created by the BJP central leaders themselves,” he said.
Quoting Union parliamentary affairs minister, Prahalad Joshi, Mr Raksha said that Mr Joshi is appealing to their own party government in the state against imposition of night curfew speaks volumes about how the BJP central leaders are trying to interfere with the state government decisions. “After Mr Joshi’s appeal, Mysuru-Kodagu Lok Sabha member, Pratap Simha has also appealed to the state government to withdraw night curfew in the state is case in point that the BJP central leaders are not leaving any stone unturned to show that Mr Bommai is weak CM in the state,” he charged.
He further charged that the BJP leaders themselves demanding lifting of night curfew has exposed the BJP state government’s ill motives of trying to put spanner on the Congress party’s ‘Padayatra’ demanding early implementation of the Mekedatu project.
Mr Raksha said that the ill motivated plans such as imposing night curfew and other decisions by both governments led by BJP at the Centre and the state has only increased the troubles of common people in the state and country.
“Several people have stopped constructing their houses due to increased unemployment and due ill motivated policies, nearly three lakh SME units have had to pull down their shutters as a result of this economic activity in the state has come to stand still. Till date neither the central government nor the state government took any positive steps towards correcting their policies. Instead they have continued to target the opposition parties and their leaders who are trying to raise the people’s issues at various forums,” he said.
