Bengaluru: Home Minister Araga Jnanendra on Thursday September 29 warned of strict action against those who come in support of the banned organisation Popular Front of India (PFI).
Speaking to mediapersons he said, the Central Government has banned PFI and its eight associates. We won’t spare anyone who tries to create a law and order situation while protesting in favour of PFI. Stringent legal action will be taken against protesters and supporters.
The Minister said, “we have already taken precautionary measures in the sensitive areas of the State, as per the directions from the Centre. In several areas of the State, battalions of the Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) and similar forces are deployed.”
In response to questions about banning the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), the political wing of PFI, he said, “To ban something, we need to gather concrete evidence. There are rules to be followed. We will ban SDPI if we receive proof of the organisation’s involvement in terrorist activities and anti-social acts. The process of banning PFI has now been started since we have enough evidence.”
