BANGALORE: The Legislative Assembly on Friday adopted two Bills — The Karnataka Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments (Second Amendment) Bill 2011 and The Karnataka Janapada Vishwavidyalaya Bill 2011. The first Bill was defeated in the Assembly in the previous session by one vote after Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Siddaramaiah pressed for division when the Treasury bench rejected his request to defer the passage of the Bill for want of elaborate discussion.

Higher Education Minister V S Acharya tabled both the Bills which were later adopted through voice vote. However, JD(S) members staged a walkout protesting the passage of the Karnataka Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments Bill in a hurry. “We need to discuss the Bill thoroughly as it was aimed at helping certain temples,” JD(S) floor leader H D Revanna said. The Congress also opposed the Bill.

Probe ordered against inspector

The state government has ordered probe against a circle inspector and an inspector attached to the Bajpe police station in Mangalore district for lathicharging school children who were protesting the decision of the local authorities to make the road near their school the one-way. Raising the issue during the Zero Hour, Congress MLA Abhaychandra Jain demanded the state government to take action against the erring police officers for lathicharging school children. Law Minister S Sureshkumar assured that immediate action will be taken against the erring police officers.
