Complaint against home minister Araga Jnanendra for his remarks on police

Chikkamagaluru, Dec 5 (IANS): The Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha and Hasiru Senehave lodged a complaint against state Home Minister Araga Jnanendra on his derogatory remarks against the police in the Koppa police station of Chikkamagaluru district. The video of Home Minister scolding police with derogatory remarks has gone viral.

Araga Jnanedra allegedly had compared police to dogs who would do anything for money while scolding them over the phone in front of party workers. He asked them how he should be discharging his duties holding his head high if there is no action against cattle thefts. The video has gone viral and drew sharp criticism among the public.

He further stated in the video that the police took bribes from people who indulge in cattle theft and smuggling. "You (police) take bribes from cattle smugglers and sleep. They are operating without any fear, police are sleeping like dogs after taking money," Minister is heard saying in the video.

Araga Jnanedra stated that the Karnataka Police earned a good name in the country, but some are not taking action against people who are indulging in cattle theft. He maintained that his focus was to ensure total ban on cow slaughtering.

He, however, clarified on Saturday that he spoke in the backdrop of an incident that happened in his home district where two 'Gau rakshaks' (cow vigilantes) of Bajarang Dal were attacked while following a truck which transported cows illegally. "The truck driver tried to run his vehicle over them and their condition is serious," he said, and added that he was deeply hurt after seeing their condition

The Rajya Raitha Sangha and Hasiru Sene stated in the complaint that the statements by the Home Minister against the police were demeaning and they would bring down the honour of the police department. The action was sought against him as they felt that the statements created insecurity among the public.

    I for once liked what he said. But the dichotomy is he is home minister of the state and police department reports to him. His party is also in power in the center. He is empowered enough to "not" do bellyaching. Police should be impartial and should file case against all cattle thieves with proper evidence- not just arrest people & vehicle and conveniently forget about cows and swords. Complaint against HM, is like focusing battery operated torch towards Sun, in other words nuisance not worthy of a news item.

    God please grant these politicians wisdom and knowledge to serve in a transparent ways and help them to use thier office power responsible ways and respectfully. Police personnel need to be respected in discharging thier job. Moreover this politician is a home minister who is blaming his own leadership role which shows disrespectful it's own citizens.

    Unfortunately Koraga Ajnanedra is our home minister and Amit Shah is our union home minister with famously known police and court records to their credit and we vote them. Where are we heading????!!!!!!

    A home minister of state abusing, accusing and passing derogatory remarks against his own police staff is very bad governance and lack of confidence in his police. This shows there is no transparency and communication between the govt, police and citizens. Here it is more apparent that police are doing their duty but minister wants police not to do thier duty but fabricate cases and slap false charges against minorities and build the case and make it more stronger to pass the anti cow theft law only for optics and for vote bank as police can not find any real cow thefts. Desperation of this minister to appease his wicked masters.

    Kumar, you are totally wrong. 60 % farmers own cattle only 25 % eat beef. Remainig beef is sold to gulf countries by sanghi slaughter house owners. Correct your facts. Take guidance from bhandari ,sanjay, jeevon etc.

    Now the police should use their power. Arrest him and put the HM of Karnataka behind bars and give him the taste of 3rd degree treatment. Only then all the MLA’s will regain their senses. If a common man had used these words will they had kept quite.

    This happens only in a Police State; the army is there to put the police in its place if they act as you want. You don't want martial law, do you?

    Respectful home minister I kindly request you please don't compare the innocent dogs to your police personnel.Have you ever kept a dog as your pet ? Dog is very sincere and faithful to the owners.You comparison is futile.Please comment if you have full knowledge of the concerned.I think you should take back the comparison for you are directly insulting a faithful animal in the universe.
