Mangalore, Sept 28 (UNI) Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today cautioned the youth that they should be aware of the ill-designs of terrorists and anti-national elements, engaged in destabilising the peace and internal security and to fight against injustice.
Inaugurating 'Guru Jayanthi Utsav' to mark the 154th birth celebration of Sri Narayana Guru, organised by Akhila Bharatha Billavara Union, expressed his concern that Karnataka and coastal region was today treated as the shelter for terrorist activities.
"This notion could be removed only when our youth become more vigilant and aware of such activities and inculcate the quality to revolt against such anti-nation activities," he said.
He also warned that the government would never give scope for disturbing the peace in the society by anti-social and anti-national elements.
It would deal sternly with such elements, he said.
He also called upon that the people to commit themselves to eradicate the still existing social evil practices such as untouchability.
For a good and healthy society, the people should love other cultures while living with his or her culture.
The preachings of Sri Narayana Guru who propagated 'Human religion' (Manava Dharma) and one religion still holds good in the present context, he said.
Replying to the demands made by the Billava Union, the Chief minister declared that the government would sanction Rs 2 crore for hostel building exclusively for students from Billava community.
He had also asked the Deputy Commissioner to identify the land required for the hostel.
He also announced that the government would also release Rs 3 crore for synthetic athletic track at Mangalore Stadium here for the benefit of the youth.
