Home Secretary video proves cattle rustling increased during BJP rule: UT Khader
Mangalore MP UT Khader said the recent incident of assault on those trying to prevent the illegal transport of livestock in Shivamogga and Home Secretary Araga Jnanendra’s video accusing the police of being corrupt proved that cattle rustling and illegal transport of cattle increased during BJP Rule in Karnataka.
Was the Karnataka Cow Slaughter Prevention and Cattle Preservation Act 2020 introduced for advertising purposes only? he sought to know at a press conference in Mangaluru. When there are so many factories exporting beef to the state, it is natural to transport cattle. Why has the government failed to shut it down, he asked.

Voters in the election of the Legislative Council of the constituency of local bodies should send a warning to the government while exercising their right to vote, that any effort to wrest the rights of Gram Panchayat members will not be tolerated.

Even after several months, the government did not organize elections for Zilla Panchayat and Taluk Panchayat. Now, in the MLC elections, they promise to hold the elections in January. Is it possible to hold an election when the government has yet to issue rules and regulations to the newly formed Boundary Commission to redraw the boundaries of the panchayat, Khader asked.
In addition, he said that the government is also considering the abolition of the taluk panchayats. Taluk panchayat has 22 departments. Is it possible for a deputy to manage all these departments without an elected body in the taluk panchayat, he sought to find out.
