Hubli, Karnataka, Sep 23 (UNI) Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today alleged the Opposition parties were trying to destabilise the BJP-led Government in the State through illegal means and creating social unrest.
Talking to newsmen here, Mr Yeddyurappa alleged the ''Janata Dal (Secular) has been trying to pour oil into the already burning fire thus allowing it to escalate and the Congress is increasing the intensity of the situation.'' Referring to attacks on places of worship, he said the State Government had already viewed the situation very seriously and would never spare anybody involved in attack on churches.
The government would not tolerate any such disturbing activities in the State and people involved in such activities would be handled with an iron hand, he declared.
The Chief Minister strongly suspected the hand of the Opposition in destabilising the BJP Government.
He said he had already briefed about the situation and the action taken by the government with the Governor. The Union Government had also been apprised about the situation in the State.
The government will keep strict vigil on the people who overstayed in the State even after expiry of visa period.
Already the officials were at work to list such people and take stern action against them. Students of various professional and other colleges were also on the watch.
Answering to the strong criticism against his government on the issue, he said the situation in the State was under control. No casualties had taken place anywhere in the State.
While the Union Government remained silent over ghastly incidents in Kashmir and other States where daily innocent people were killed, it was making a 'mountain out of a mole hill' about the situation in Karnataka, he alleged.
