Irked over the continuous attacks on Tamils and Tamil establishments in Bengaluru and escalating violence in the state over the Cauvery issue, members of the Nam Thamizhar Katchi on Tuesday demanded that the Congress-led government in Karnataka be dismissed.
The members who attempted to besiege the Karnataka Association Hall, near Sivanandha Colony, also claimed that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had miserably failed to control violence in the state. “The Central Government should immediately intervene in the issue and make sure that justice prevails and all perpetrators are punished under the law,” said a member.
Violence and vandalism have touched new heights in Karnataka, especially in Bengaluru, where more than 45 omni buses belonging to a Tamil Nadu-based company, were set ablaze on Monday. Many establishments were also pelted with stones in Karnataka forcing the police to impose Section 144 in Bengaluru.
Stones were pelted on few other establishments owned by Kannadigas in Tamil Nadu by Tamil outfits, in retaliation.
