Congress flays minister Eshwarappa's anti-Muslim remarks


Bengaluru, Sep 16 (IANS): The Congress has sought stringent action against Karnataka Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister K S Eshwarappa for his alleged anti-Muslim remark in connection with cow slaughter ban.

"The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party should act against Eshwarappa for stating that patriotic Muslims vote for the BJP, while pro-Pakistan Muslims hesitate to do so, because some of its leaders fear losing their votes," Karnataka Congress leader V.S. Ugrappa said, here on Monday.

Asserting that the BJP government would ban cow slaughter in the state by invoking the Act the previous Congress government revoked, Eshwarappa said on Sunday some Congress legislators were ready to join the BJP but were hesitant fearing loss of Muslim votes if cow slaughter was banned.

"Eshwarappa has taken the oath to treat all as equal and respect everyone irrespective of religion, caste or creed. How can he seek to divide Muslims by making such shocking statements when discussing sensitive issues, like cow slaughter ban," said Ugrappa.

Eshwarappa was Deputy Chief Minister in the previous BJP government in 2012-13. He is a MLA from Shivamogga, about 280km northwest of Bengaluru, in the Malnad region. Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa also belongs to the same region.

"It's dangerous to have rabid politicians, like Eshwarappa, in the government. They poloarise the people by dividing them on pro and anti-India or pro and anti-Pakistan lines," reiterated Ugrappa.

    He want to hide his govt's cowardly act of not offering enough releif work to flood victims, so as usual played communal card. Though he is a cabinet level minister, he must have resigned from ministry before speaking such rubbish thing. By the way who is he to decide who is he and how many of his chaddies gave sacrifices of life during freedom struggle.....

    BJP should realize that he is a liability to the party than an asset due to his lack of knowledge and foul mouthed.

    It's dangerous to have rabid politicians, like Eshwarappa, Shah and Modi in the government. They polarise people by dividing them.

    By criticizing other religion, BJP is trying to escape from current affairs in the country like economic slowdown, GDP,flood relief, unemployment etc, it is clear that they do not want to involve in real issues.
