Mysuru, January 22:- Former chief minister and senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah has said that he doesn’t have proper information regarding Aditya Rao who is accused of planting a bomb at Mangaluru International Airport (MIA) on Monday. He said that he would respond after collecting all the information. He urged the authorities to conduct a thorough investigation of the issue.
He was speaking to media persons at his Ramakrishna Nagar residence in the city on Wednesday.
“State government should not forcefully recover the loan from the farmers. If they are willing to repay and are in a condition to repay, then it is not a problem. If the government tries to forcefully collect the loan amount, we will stage protests. When I was the chief minister, I had instructed the banks not to collect the loans forcefully. I condemn the decision of the state government which is forcing the farmers to repay the loans,” he said.
Responding to razing of sheds of Bangladeshis, Siddaramaiah said the Bharatiya Janata Party only gave them a place to settle and they are now sending them back. He condemned the dual nature of BJP.
He called the decision of the Mysuru Bar Association (MBA) not to take up the case of Nalini Balakumar as unconstitutional and said she didn’t do anything anti-national.
Siddaramaiah opined that Nalini was trying to drive home a point on the prevailing situation in Kashmir. He said that the advocates also attacked former chairman of Karnataka State Women’s Commission Manjula Manasa for questioning the decision of the MBA. (MR/KS)
