CAA portrays PM Modi’s dictatorship mindset: Former minister Dr HC Mahadevappa

Mysuru, December 21:- “The Narendra Modi government at the Centre has introduced the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) amidst opposition and this proves the PM Modi’s dictatorship mindset,” said former minister Dr HC Mahadevappa.

He was speaking to media persons prior to the inauguration of Gandhi Parishat event at Aravinda Nagar here on Saturday.

“People should not be pressurised in a democracy. The amended Citizenship Act is already pressurising the people. The rights of people to protest is being snatched by imposing Section 144. Don’t we have the rights of a chief minister and home minister entitled to? Security should be provided to the families of the deceased in Mangaluru. Compensation should be provided to them,” he added.

“Former chief minister Jagadish Shettar has appreciated the road works done during my regime. Our party should have created awareness about the good works done,” he added.

Responding to a question whether he is also an aspirant for Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president’s post, Dr Mahadevappa said ‘No.’ (KS, NGB)
