Bangalore, Sep 22 (UNI) State Government has ordered the police to keep BJP's expelled MP H T Sangliana under 'surveillance' to monitor his activities, Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa said today.
Speaking to newspersons after a emergency Cabinet meeting he said that there was a report with the state government about the illegal activities of 'New Life' organisation and party's expelled MP's association with it.
He alleged that H T Sangliana had close links with New Life which reportedly received funds from Middle-Eastren countries to carry out its religious activities.
Taking strong exception against Mr Sangliana's statement that his life was not safe under Yeddyurappa, Chief Minister announced that "MP's activities will be put on watch by the security agencies".
Taking strong exception against the 'missives' sent by Union Home ministry on the attacks on churches, the Chief Minsiter questioned whether it had acted in equal haste on the attacks on minorities in Jammu and Kashmir, Assam and other parts of the country.
"When eight dalits were burnt alive in Kamgalapalli in Kolar district in 2000, the Congress which ruled the state then remained silent. Did the then Home Minister Mallikarjuna Kharge did not resign after the massacre," he asked.
He said when 18 people were massacred Singur in West Bangal Union Home ministry remained silent. "People can very much understand the designs of the Congress-led UPA government and its cronies in Karnataka on these issues" he said.
