Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai accused the Congress Party of trying to take political mileage out of caste politics.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Saturday January 14, he said the party will take suitable action against those who talk against the Government and Party. There is a big responsibility on them as they have to see all the communities equally and do justice to all. I have not given any deadline and it is they who have set it. We have taken a decision within one week after the Backward Classes Commission gave its interim report. Kashappanavar was the Chairman and Legislator. Why Kashappanar’s father who was in the Congress Party did not do it? In 2016, the Congress Party was in power and Siddaramaiah was the Chief Minister. The Kantharaj Commission had rejected their applications. There is an order that they must be in 3B and 2A will not be given. The Congress Party was in power from 2016 to 2018 and those who did not ask questions at that time are now asking. Do they have any moral rights? The Congress Party is trying to take advantage of the current situation, he said.
The Seer must question those who are on their side and what they have done when in power. It is not correct to vitiate the atmosphere,” the CM added.
