Karnataka Reservation Protest

Karnataka Reservation Protest: In Karnataka, people from Banjara and Bhovi communities protested in Shivamogga on Monday on the issue of reservation. During this, stones were also pelted at the house and office of former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa.

Seeing the uproar, the police lathi-charged the protesters. Water cannons were also used. After this the crowd dispersed. Section 144 has been imposed in the area. The protesters are opposing the decision to implement the Justice Sadashiv Commission report on the issue of reservation.

What is Justice Sadashiv Commission Report?

The Justice Sadashiv Commission report has advised to give propositional reservation to the castes coming under the schedule cast. The state government is now going to implement it. The protesters allege that this report will work to divide the castes coming in the Schedule Caste community.

Yeddyurappa said – I will talk to CM

Former CM BS Yeddyurappa said that I will call the leaders of Banjara community and talk to them. I have been working for the development of Shikaripura for the last 50 years, there might be some misunderstanding with the protestors. That’s why I have asked SP and DC not to take any strict action.

There is some confusion among the leaders of Banjara community, I will talk to them and I will also take the leaders to the CM so that if there is any grievance, it can be resolved. I will talk to the leaders in a day or two.

I do not blame anyone or the Congress for this incident. I will talk to Banjara leaders and discuss it. Banjara community helped me to become CM, whatever happened in Shikaripura happened because of misconception.
