Bommai says Cong. leaders are ‘habitual offenders’
Home and Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Friday deplored the Opposition Congress leaders’ protests against petrol price hike in Bengaluru and different components of the State throughout the COVID-19 lockdown and stated Congress leaders are “habitual offenders” of guidelines and rules.
As petrol costs crossed ₹100, the Karnataka Congress held a “100 not out” protest throughout the State and KPCC president D.K. Shivakumar, Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah, senior leaders R.V. Deshpande and Dinesh Gundu Rao and legislators participated in it in entrance of petrol bunks in Bengaluru and shouted slogans against the BJP authorities on the Centre.
Mr. Bommai stated the Congress had a “negative attitude.” Its leaders had questioned the need of jabs when the vaccination drive was launched and now the identical leaders have been demanding vaccination freed from price for all residents. “In a way they are habitual offenders and violating rules”, he stated.
“Protests against price rise can be conducted in different ways, including social media”, he stated and condemned bodily protest throughout COVID time.
The Congress has determined to carry a stir against gasoline price hike from June 11 to fifteen at 5,000 petrol bunks.
KPCC president D.K. Shivakumar advised mediapersons that “petrol pickpocket is going on” and the Central authorities had earned ₹21.60 lakh crore income by growing petrol costs by 48 instances since January 2021.
For re-opening the economic system in a graded method from June 14, the federal government has relaxed pointers for every type of industries. Industries are allowed to open with 50% workers and house owners of industries have to rearrange transportation services for his or her staff. Further, house owners have to make sure vaccination of all their staff, Mr. Bommai stated.
