New Delhi, Oct 13 (UNI) Taking strong exception to the dispatch of Central Advisory notices under Article 355 to Karnataka in the wake of attacks on minority institutions, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa has said there was no need for the Centre to send its team to the state after the restoration of law and order situation.
In his address at the NIC meeting, the Chief Minister said there had been serious communal and terrorist incidents in states like Jammu and Kashmir, Assam, Tripura, NCTR Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra but the Centre did not send such advisories to these states and yet just two days of trouble was enough to send two advisories in quick succession that too after the situation was promptly brought under control.
Mr Yeddyurappa said there was no need for the Central team to speak to the media before submitting their report to the Home Ministry especially when the Judicial inquiry had been ordered.
"Such steps appear politically motivated, we feel it aggravated the communal tensions rather than reducing it", he said.
