Opposition Leader in the Legislative Council D V Sadananda Gowda alleged that the law and order in the state has hit the rock bottom and claimed that “police goondagiri is prevailing in the state”.

Making a preliminary submission in the Legislative Council on an adjournment motion, he claimed that incidents of murders, dacoities and crimes against women are increasing.

“The law and order situation in the state is fine,” reacting to these allegations, CM Siddaramaiah claimed.

‘Govt Shielding  Rahman Khan’

Claiming that the government is attempting to protect the accused involved the Amanath Co-operative Bank financial fraud, BJP and JD(S) members sought a CBI probe into the financial irregularities. 

Raising the issue  through a calling attention motion, M C Nanaiah of JD(S) alleged that the government is trying to protect Union Minority Welfare Minister K Rahman Khan in the case. BJP’s Puttaswamy supported him.

More Power for Villages

The government has increased three-phase electricity supply to rural areas from the present six hours to seven hours with immediate effect. Energy Minister D K Shivakumar said this while replying to a question from Congress member Allama Prabhu Patil  during Question Hour.

Maintaining that the state is facing a power shortage of over 15 per cent at present, Shivakumar said, “There is no need to panic as the government has worked out both long-term as well as short-term measures to tide over the situation.”
