Mangaluru, November 4: Today BJP is the ruling party in our country, but it is not right for the BJP to do politics in the matter of caste and religion. The BJP is protesting against the statement of CM Siddaramaiah over the matter of eating beef. Eating food is ones personal matter. Likewise the Chief Minister has his right over his choice of eating food, said MLC Ivan D’Souza in a press meet held at his office here on Wednesday, November 4th.
Pertaining to this matter, the BJP leaders are giving irrelevant statements and are trying to disturb peace in the society, said MLC Ivan D’Souza.
Condemning the recent gang war in Mangaluru sub-jail that resulted in double murder, Ivan said, such kind of incident should not have happened. The negligence of officials are responsible for this incident, said Ivan. In the past I had raised questions many times in the parliament about the problems faced in sub-jail here, he said.
Till now, CCTVs are not installed in the old jail building. The officials have neglected this matter. If there are no grants from the government, I will fill it from the minister’s fund, he said.
In the press meet, Nazeer Bajal, MUDA chairman Ibrahim Kodijal and others were also present.
