Brahmavar: Home minister's assurance on Koraga colony case withdrawal falls flat

Daijiworld Media Network - Brahmavar (SP)

Brahmavar, Jan 24: The home minister's assurance of withdrawing cases related to the caning of some Koraga community members by the policemen of Kota police station a Mehndi function in Kotathattu gram panchayat limits remains unfulfilled.

The Koraga community leaders who held a meeting  at Kotathattu colony have decided to wait for 15 days and then revert to a stronger agitation if the cases are not withdrawn by then.


Both home minister Araga Jnanendra and backward classes welfare minister Kota Srinivas Poojary had issued statements in the past about withdrawing these cases. When the leaders met minister Kota Srinivas Poojary on the issue recently, he had assured to do justice and had sought for 15 days time.

Now, with the  deadline having passed without any action, the Koraga leaders say that the faith they had in the ministers and the government was shattered. They have decided to hold protest demonstrations in front of the deputy commissioner's office till justice is done and also to approach Koragajja and Baikadthi Daiva seeking justice. 

Koraga leaders Balaraj Mangaluru, Sanjeeva Kodical, leader of Koraga Development Organizations Federation, Sriputran, Kotathattu gram panchayat member, Seeta and locals Rajesh Kota, Sudarshan Kota, Laxman Byndoor, Nagaraj Mangaluru, Ganesh Barkur and Shilpa  participated in the meeting.

Leader V Ganesh Kundapur, noted that during the visit of the deputy commissioner and ministers to the colony, the latter had promised to provide basic infrastructural facilities to the colony but nothing has materialised so far.

He also said that the promise made by the home minister to transfer most of the Kota police station staff also has not been kept. He wondered if this was not considered an atrocity on the Koraga community by the administration, then what else could it be.
