Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday December 18 said that the issues related to northern Karnataka will also be addressed during the session that starts on December 19.

Speaking to mediapersons, he also said that several draft laws will be tabled during the legislative session at the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha in Belagavi, including a bill to replace the SC/ST quota ordinance.
The State Government had previously passed an ordinance increasing the quotas for Scheduled Castes from 15 per cent to 17 per cent and for Scheduled Tribes from 3 per cent to 7 per cent.

Governor Thaawarchand Gehlot approved the ordinance.

In response to Siddaramaiah’s remarks on the Mangaluru cooker blast, Bommai urged the opposition leader to study what KPCC Chief D. K. Shivakumar said.

“The pressure cooker accident was just an accident, according to what they (Congress leaders) have been claiming very clearly. I want Siddaramaiah to know that he should first read the whole remark made by KPCC President D. K. Shivakumar before responding in a way that will honour his dignity,” Bommai said.

In response to the protest by the Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti in Belagavi on the border dispute, Bommai said that the organisation had been engaging in such activities for the past 50 years. “MES is being kept in check by the State Government, which knows how to control the group,” he added.
