Hubballi, Jan 11: Senior BJP leader Jagadish Shettar has said that his party will not justify the arson threat by Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel and attacks by Kagawad MLA Raju Kage and Uttara Kannada MP Anant Kumar Hegde.
Responding to the queries of media persons, he said that mistake committed by anyone is a mistake and BJP condemns such acts. "We have discussed these matters with BJP state president B Y Yeddyurappa and he will take appropriate action against these representatives," he said.
He called upon elected representatives to abide by law and become role model for commoners. Commenting on the appointment of Lokayukta, he said that the government takes suggestion from opposition leaders but neglects them while finalizing the name. "The last time, we had suggested name of Justice Vikram Sen, but it was dropped in the final list," he said.
Denying commenting on the appointment of Justice Vishwanath Shetty as the Lokayukta, Shettar said that if there is any allegation against Shetty, the government should review it.
When asked about implementation of Justice Sadashiv commission recommendations, he said that the BJP had given consent to the proposals during the recent Madigara Mahasamavesh. "After that convention, we were approached by communities like Bhovi and Lambani, who alleged that the Justice Sadashiv report is misleading," he said.
"We suggest the government to convene a meeting. The chief minister should try to create consent among all the communities before implementing the commission's recommendations," he opined.
