Bangalore, Sep 20 (UNI) The BJP government in Karnataka has sent a detailed report to the Centre on the action taken in connection with the recent attacks on places of worship and violence in the state.

Speaking to reporters here, Home Minister V S Acharya said the state government had given the details about the efforts made by it to establish communal harmony in the report.

The report, which comes in the wake of the Centre 'advising' stringent action against the culprits, describes the action to be taken by the state government to end the violence.

He said the state government had already ordered a judicial inquiry into the attacks at several places and arrested Bajrang Dal leader Mahendra Kumar.

Those arrested had claimed responsibility for the incidents.

Dr Acharya said the issue was now 'closed' as the government had taken all necessary action to prevent further attacks on minority communities in the state.

The government would also be sending day-to-day reports to the Centre to keep it informed, he said.

Law and Parliamentary Minister Suresh Kumar said the government's one-point agenda was to save the image of the state by restoring normalcy.

To a question on the Centre's action in issuing a 'directive' to the state government, he charged that the Union government was diverting the attention of the people from its failure in controlling acts of terrorism in the country.
