Vastavam web: The BJP has a concrete action plan to meet the wishes of party workers and people who want to “throw out the anti-people and anti-democratic government” led by the Congress in Karnataka, Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said here today.Javadekar, who is in-charge of BJP affairs in Karnataka, said, “Our workers and people are enthused. We have a concrete plan of action. People are with the BJP. They want to throw out this anti-democracy, anti-people, anti-farmer government led by Siddaramaiah lock, stock and barrel.” Discontentment has been brewing among MPs for not being given representation in the Union Cabinet in yesterday’s reshuffle.
Earlier in the day, Belagavi MP Suresh Angadi told that the dominant Lingayat community from North Karnataka has not been represented in the Cabinet and that he would air this grievance before Javadekar if he was invited for parleys.Angadi’s name as a probable candidate was doing the rounds in the state BJP circles, while Ananth Kumar Dattatreya Hegde, appointed Minister of State for Skill Development, is considered a surprise pick.”National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test (NEET) is an issue which has been decided by the Supreme Court and therefore, I will not make any comments,” he said.
Protests erupted soon after 17-year-old Anitha, daughter of a daily wage earner, allegedly hanged herself at her house in Ariyalur district.She was reportedly upset after it became known that Tamil Nadu will not be exempted from the ambit of National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test (NEET) for admission to medical courses.
