Pragativahini News, Hubballi – Condemning the vandalism in Belagavi, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Saturday said that the vandals would be dealt with sternly.
Speaking to media persons in Hubballi he said, “I have instructed the Home Minister to take stringent action against those who violate law and order. The Home Minister too has issued orders in this regard to police officers. Already a few persons have been arrested. Those indulging in acts of vandalism like stone pelting, destroying public property and damaging government vehicles would be dealt with sternly. More stringent and long term measures would be taken to ensure that such acts do not recur. Police have been instructed to take all measures in this regard.”
Vandalising the statutes of the patriots who have made sacrifices for the country could not be tolerated. “Statues are erected to pay respects to them, not to cause social unrest in their name. A few elements are indulging in such intolerable acts. They would be crushed. Investigation would find whether it was perpetrated intentionally,” Bommai said.
