Gulbarga: The BJP will hold a massive protest demonstration in front of Parliament House on Marach 11 protesting against the Ranganath Mishra Committee recommendations providing Reservations to Muslims.
Disclosing this at a press conference here today, BJP Karnataka unit President K S Eshwarappa said the party would vehemently oppose the implementation of the Committee's recommendations as it would be detrimental to national integration.
''Providing reservation based on religion will lead to disintegration of our society. It also amounts to violation of apex court verdict'' he alleged.
He also alleged that the Centre is planning to provid reservations to converted Christians and Muslims. This would not only encourage religion based conversions, but also harm the genuine SCs and STs.
He said that the BJP would also launch a massive awareness programme in the country against the spiraling prices and the alleged anti-people policies of the Congress led UPA Government.
Defending provision of funds to various Mutts and spiritual organisations in the state, he said they were doing yeoman service, besides running hospitals and educational institutions in the rural areas.
Admitting that there was severe power shortage in the state, he said the government was initiating measures to supply power to rural areas by installing separate feeders. This would also ensure drinking water supply and irrigation.
Sufficient funds have not been allocated to augment power generation for the last seven years, he claimed, adding the thermal power stations at Raichur and Bellary were not able to generate power up to their capacity due to technical problems.
