Shivamogga: A day after Mangaluru witnessed a stand-off between the police and the protesters, senior BJP leader and Minister KS Eshwarappa has said that there will be no judicial probe into the police firing that claimed two lives in the Port City. Instead, he said that appropriate action will be initiated against those involved in anti-social activities that fueled tension in the city.
Addressing the reporters in Shivamogga, he said that the Citizenship Amendment Act has got the consent of the President of India but the Congress is misleading the people across the country.
The Act is in no way against the Indian Muslims and this does not suit the convenience of the Congress, Eshwarappa added.
"The BJP has performed exceptionally well in the parliamentary polls as well as the recently held by-polls and this has left the Congress jittery. The Congress needed a reason to attack the BJP and the act became a tool for them to execute their plans," he said.
It may be recalled that Mangaluru turned tense after police opened fire at the protesters who came out on the street to oppose the Citizenship Amendment Act. Two persons lost their lives. A curfew was imposed in the city after the incident and mobile internet services were shutdown.
