Mysuru, August 7:- “We will protest against the central government trying to re-amend Article 123 of the Indian Constitution which was once rejected by the Rajya Sabha,” said Mysore Paints and Varnish Limited (MPVL) chairman H A Venkatesh at a press meet held at the Press Club in the city on Monday.
“It is an attempt to divest the power of state government which identify the backward communities in fulfilling their needs through Constitutional powers,” he said.
“Any amendment to the Article requires two thirds majority. The amendment has failed in Rajya Sabha and it was a big humiliation for the central government,” he added.
Shivamalla, K J Narayan, Gopal and others were present.
