Mysuru, February 19:- “The movement should be intensified to avoid the state becoming a police state,” said the state president of Campus Front of India, Fayaz Doddamane at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Wednesday.
“Clear attempts are made to stop protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Karnataka. Police interference to stop the protests are seen in the states ruled by Bharatiya Janata Party. Commissioner of Police, Bengaluru implemented section 144 according to his will and wish to stop the protests. The police atrocities started in Mangaluru lathi-charge and went on and on. They have also killed two innocent people in firing,” he alleged.
“More than the governance of the state government, police rule is clearly visible. Karnataka Police are working as per the direction of fascism. The government and Human Rights Commission should consider this very seriously for protection of democracy in Karnataka,” he added.
Secretary Ashraf Davanagere, Mohammed Riyaz, Mohammed Nadeem and others were present. (MR/KS)
