Hubli: Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod
Muthalik today criticized the JDS for opposing the Anti-Cow
Slaughter Bill, alleging it was a move to please minorities
and part of its "vote-bank politics" in Karnataka.
His comments come in the wake of JD(S) leader and former
Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda calling on President Pratibha
Patil to appeal to her not to give assent to the Bill.
Speaking to reporters here, Muthalik said the Sene will
stage protest dharnas in front of all offices of district
deputy commissioners, demanding a ban on radical outfit
Popular Front of India, which he alleged, was responsible for
the growth of terrorism in the country.
He flayed the Congress demand for a CBI probe into the
illegal mining issue in Karnataka and alleged Congress leaders
themselves were part of such activities.
