Bengaluru: 'I am Gauri' rally was sponsored by state government - BJP


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Sep 14: The ‘I am Gauri’ rally to protest against the killing of journalist Gauri Lankesh on September 12 in Bengaluru was sponsored by the state government, accused BJP Party Spokesperson S Suresh Kumar.

Addressing the reporters on Wednesday, he said collapse of law and order as the Congress government failed to deliver good governance was the main cause that killed Gauri. However, all protestors remained silent on the state government’s failure and chose to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Sangh Parivar.

Being silent on the Congress and strident on the Sangh Parivar is proof that the entire programme was Congress-sponsored. Presence of CM’s media adviser Dinesh Amin Mattu at the rally in making arrangements, confirms the role of the state government, he alleged.

“The anger was not misdirected but the target (Prime Minister and the Sangh Parivar) was consciously and deliberately chosen (sic),” he asserted.

Prior to the rally, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) threatened to sue anybody mentioning the Sangh Parivar in connection with the murder of journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh.

However, numerous speakers at ‘I Am Gauri’ accused Hindutva forces for “stifling dissent” in the country. The protest became a platform for criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP-led Union government on many counts.

State BJP spokesperson Prakash Shesharaghavachar had told media persons on Wednesday that the party would review the video recording of the entire meet and would take legal recourse against anybody “who blamed the Sangh Parivar for the murders.”

    Ever wonder why British could divide and rule us?
    We are more divided than ever before. Religion seem to be used as a dividing tool and not a spritual tool.
    Let's be clear, British plundered the resources. Now via taxes, abnormal hike in fuel price we are paying through our noses to keep the economy afloat.
    It seems like whole nation is under the charisma of fiery speech give PM.

    Even though protest staged by Congress, what is your problem man? It was peaceful protest. They have not given dhamki to Police & not snatched police mobile like our MP

    Waw, great observation, Really. BTW, how many voices you will silence with or without state support. Your own two ministers have admitted openly your role in this crime. Modi is busy with Abe taking him for sight seeing in Ahmedabad to influence votes and evading as usual. All your organisations are celebrating this crime. So it is the obvious reason for this rally.

    Your message is not clear. If the ruling party is Central Govt, I agree with you 100%.

    That's what is happening here.

    One question still baffles me? Why is no one cursing or asking the CM and the state leadership.? Why isnt a Dharna or morcha directed to CMs office demanding speedy investigation and trial? Its a total failure of law and order of the state . Mind you its not the first murder that has gone unresolved. Still the Congis and supporters blame the center .

    Cheta, dont worry about cases in Karnataka. Worry about the 100's of political killings happening in God's own county every year and suggest ideas to put an end to them.
