Bangalore,(DHNS) : The State BJP on Wednesday demanded that Home Minister K J George should be replaced for his alleged failure to handle the law and order situation in the State.
Addressing a press conference in Bangalore, BJP State President Pralhad Joshi and spokesperson Suresh Kumar termed George “inefficient” to be a Home Minister. They said George had no control over his department and this was reflected by the overall rise of crime rate in the State.
The morale of the police had hit rock bottom and there was interference in transfer of police officials. Instances of gambling and other illegal activities were on the rise, they said.
They criticised the government’s decision not to support cost-sharing of railway projects in the State. The government backtracking on cost- sharing would delay the completion of railway projects worth over Rs 22,000 crore, they added.
