Mysore, Sep 23 (UNI) The BJP government in Karnataka, ordering the police to monitor of movements of a member of Parliament brings back the memories of emergency days, Janata Dal(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy said today.
Speaking to reporters at Suttur village near here he said such a decision was anti-democratic and irresponsible.
"Instead of maintaining law and order situation, the BJP government is trying to put the blame on the opposition parties and make the police a scapegoat. Its decision to watch the movements on its own Parliament member H T Sangliana is objectionable and dangerous," he said.
Quoting Mr Yeddyurappa's recent statement accusing opposition parties of instigating attacks on Churches, he said such allegations was baseless and far from truth.
"Why did the BJP government invoke the Goonda Act on attackers after all was over with more than two dozen churches bearing the brunt attacks by the pro-Hindu organisations. Why did he not take such a decision on the day one and let the attacks spread to several districts," he asked.
He accused the state government of falsely blaming the police and said it had not given a free hand and stopped the police from initiating action against the 'known' organisations that were responsible for the attacks.
