Bangalore: Criminal cases against those indulging in moral policing: Shettar

Bangalore: Criminal cases against those indulging in moral policing: Shettar
From Our Special Correspondent
Daijiworld Media Network - Bangalore

Bangalore, Feb 12: In a stern warning against the perpetrators of moral policing, Karnataka Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar declared in the State Legislative Assembly that the Government will file criminal cases against anybody taking law into their hands in the name of moral policing.

''Let the law enforcement agency take action if anybody has any complaints whatsoever,” Shettar said making it clear that nobody will be allowed to act against others in the name of moral policing.

He was replying to the debate in the Assembly on Tuesday on the motion of thanks to the Governor for his address to the joint session of the State Legislature on February 4.

Anti-social activities or acts of moral policing would never be tolerated, he said pointing out that the Government has given strict instructions to the police to deal with incidents of moral policing.

Earlier, Congress opposition leader in the Assembly Siddaramaiah alleged that the law and order situation had totally collapsed in the coastal belt of the State. Some anti-social elements acted as moral police and have been attacking young girls.

Siddaramaiah held the BJP government squarely responsible for pushing the growth of the State backwards in the last five years and failing to ensure growth on all fiscal parameters.

“Jagadish Shettar has claimed that the financial position of the state is sound,” Siddaramaiah said and mentioned that the growth rate of gross state domestic product (GSDP) has alarmingly declined from 10.5 per cent in 2005-06 to 5.5 per cent in 2011-12.

''It is estimated to grow at 5.9 per cent for 2012-13 as per the official data.This shows that there is no growth and in such a scenario, how can one say that the financial status is sound,” Siddaramaiah asked.

Congmen Asked to Get Central Grants under PMGSY
The Chief Minister asked Congress members to exert more pressure on the UPA Government led by the Congress to grant funds for upgradation of rural roads in the State under the Prime Minister’s Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY).

Shettar said the Centre had not sanctioned funds to the State for upgrading rural roads during the last four years.

The State was ready to share 25 per cent of the cost involved in rural road development works under the PMGSY, he said and urged the Congressmen to put pressure on the Centre.

Despite several pleas to the Centre and Union Minister for Rural Development Jairam Ramesh, the chief minister said the Centre had denied funds to the State and other states such as Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.

“We are ready to even share 25 per cent of the cost if the Centre sanctions funds under the PMGSY. You (Congress members) please go and put pressure on the Centre to release funds to the State,” he said reminding them that the State Government had agreed to this condition but the Centre had not taken any initiative to release funds, he said.

Following denial of funds by the Centre, the State government has taken up road works under the Chief Minister’s Grameen Sadak Yojana. Twenty kms road was laid in each assembly segment, Shettar said.

Stating that there was no substance in the Opposition charge that the State’s economy had gone bankrupt, Shettar said the borrowings of the Government were within the limits of the 13th finance commission.

The debt to GSDP ratio for the State was 22.6 per cent in 2012-13 against 23.88 per cent in 2007-08. The 13th commission had laid down the road map for reducing the debt to GSDP ratio for Karnataka to 25.2 per cent by the year 2014-15, he said.

The debt has grown in accordance with the size of the budget, he said and explained that the size of the State budget went up from Rs 63,840 crore in 2007-08 to Rs 1.17 lakh crore in 2013-14. ''Is it not growth? Anybody who knows the ground reality knows the facts,” he contended.

Poor Shettar ! One more promise which BJP can not fulfill. No use Mr. Shettar, few months left then you and all your team will be gone in the wind. Jobless youths harassed eveyone and enjoyed life under your rule. Now, time for their end.

Yesterday Mr CM promised to book the moral police by slapping criminal charges. Hope he does on 14th valentines day to prove his promise or it will be another flip flop.

As per Indian political scene Mrs. Idira Gandhi turned a blind eye to the formation of Khalistan and its movement. This paper tiger later on turned into a carnivorous one and took her life. Similarly BJP Government aiding and abetting the Bajrang Dal, Ram Sena and similar outfits that do the moral policing in Karnataka could become the root cause of its downfall and elimination. please do not underestimate the common man. Once the tether of his patience is worn out, he will retaliate with full power and swing and you will never know what hit you so hard.

Shreyas Rai, Mangalore

commentators here, most of them were not taking sides of the grown up children in HS attack. In my understanding all voiced their concern at the unauthorised attack on them by some organisation\s.
You cannot condone this attack on those innocent people who were having a birthday bash in a private premises. Hope you know about law - all are innocent until proven guilty.
The people who attacked them, had no right to do so but they had the right to inform the law authorities about any illegal activity taking place there.
That is what most of the people here and everywhere complaining about and against the action of those particular organisations taking law in their own hands!!!
I hope you too do not approve some one taking law in their own hand and bashing you up thinking that you are doing something wrong... right Shreyas?
Hope you do not come across that situation to get a first hand experience and then to blame those organisations!!!!!!

Shreyas Rai, whatever it is, goons do not have any business to damage property and molest people. If there indeed was anything illegal going on at the home stay, they should have quietly informed the police and the police would have watched what was going on and raided the place. There is no justification whatsoever for anyone to take law into their own hands. If that is the case then we do not need a government, law enforcement, courts etc. Do you and will you support private armies in the country?

This is just an eye wash!! BJP did'nt take any action against its goonda outfit- Bajrangis, since the past 5 years and now at the fag end of its tenure they have woken up from their sleep.

This government let its mad dogs loose for the past 5 years only to spoil peace, harmony, attack innocent citizens, abuse women, attacks students and destroy our peaceful culture in the Coastal Belt.

This government MUST pay a price for its misdeeds and i am sure the intelligent people of Mangalore-Udupi-North Canara will show them their place in May 2013.

Moral police have been active since the BJP govt came to power. But what the govt didnt want to stop since then, is useless to be stopped now when the govt is at its fag end of rule. Anyways Mr Shettar's statement ensures that the govt has recieved assurances that there will be no more attacks & hence the CM has given this statement. Why was he silent all the while during the past few attacks. Is it because the victims were not his voters? Is it because he had to fulfill the agenda of the moral police.
It is a shame for the govt that its citizens are no more assured of leading a safe peaceful life but have to lead life dictated by others. It is such a shame that everyone in the Govt must hang thier heads in shame. A govt that cannot safe gaurd its own people. Shame on you.

Siddaramaiah alleged that the law and order situation had totally collapsed in the coastal belt of the State. His statement is very true since all goons from Bangalore side had been to Coastal area in the name of “Paadyatra” so, off course Law & Order situation will collapse as when these people come down to Coastal Area. You stop the illegal and illicit business activities and hafta culture around Mangalore area and all BD, Sene Members will vanish without any agenda to roam around

This ' moral police' is a trained rapist outfit of the Karnataka BJP. We all saw what happened at the Mangalore Homestay and the Beer Pub. The BJP needs these goons at all times.Their services are paid for.

If the State Administration was tough and good , the Moral Police would never have made a start. It is the BJP Govt. which encouraged them ( turning a blind eye ) under the leadership of Yeddiyurappa. Today the BJP has lost control over this outfit esp. in Mangalore & Udupi districts.

Let us hope that we are slowly giving up the tag of right wing banana republic and slow but steadily becoming a mature democratic republic. We have one of the best constitutions of the world with a legal body whose job is to interpret those constitutions and, where applicable, void utive and legislative acts which infringe the constitution. The Constitution of India is the Supreme Law of India. It lays down the framework defining fundamental political principles, establishes the structure, procedures, powers, and duties of government institutions, and sets out fundamental rights, directive principles, and the duties of citizens. Jai Hind!

yes Dev, Mangalore
what you said is absolutely correct -
There should be written Instructions to all Police stations to apprehend any person other than the police\law enforcement officials appointed by Govt., involving themselves in moral policing as is being done by some organisations presently.
They should be apprehended and punishment meted out without delay, without giving chance for their political bosses to interfere. If at all such persons apprehended are let off CM should immediately take action on the police officials if found negligent in their honour bound duty to safe guard the good citizens of the state.
We have to appreciate our CM for taking note of the deteriorating law and order situation and mentioning the same in the assembly.
Any good decisions taken - better late than never!!!!
Hope to see CM's warning taken seriously.

Don't make such silly statements Mr. Shettar when elections are drawing near. All your earlier CM's have been saying the same thing and yet we have your goons going on the rampage harassing women and ordinary citizens every other day. Show us some action and then we will believe you. Send some of this scum behind bars for a long time and then we will trust your words. Walk the talk first.

Moral policing by the wing of fundamentalists is done by tacit support of the Govt. of the day.Whatever said by CM at fag end of its tenure is nothing but a eyewash.just to fool the voters of coastal region.

Late but right decision,if it works without any political interference.

Dev, Mangalore
Tuesday, February 12, 2013

But criminal cases were hoisted on victims & those who video-graphed the incident in the past(sending signal that reporting is a crime).
Police have taken victims to police stations & had them waiting there for many hours without medical aid, while those who had assaulted were given warm reception as if they are bosses(protectors of culture).
Give police written orders to arrest all the moral police as anti social criminals with a promise not to interfere even if they are protected(sponsored) by persons belonging to his own party.
Then only we believe about your honesty. Otherwise we believe what your past party President warned IT officials about "see who will protect you once we come to power" as police too won't take the same risks with uncertainty looming over their heads.
