The State government has not dropped its plan to enact a legislation against superstitious practices, Law and Parliamentary Minister T B Jayachandra said.

Speaking to reporters after meeting the party workers at KPCC premises, he said the matter is under active consideration.

The proposal was put on hold following directions from Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

The draft legislation prepared by the Law Department has been sent to the Social Welfare Department for scrutiny, he said.

The Law Department also has plans include changes in the Prevention of Atrocities Against Women Act to make it stronger.

Inputs are being received from various bodies, including NGOs, on the issue, he said.Replying to queries, he denied charges of BJP leaders that the financial condition of the State is bad. The Congress government inherited pending bills to the of over `9,000 crore.

Referring to his visit, he said, “I will visit KPCC every second Tuesday from next month”.
