It is going to be ugly when the Assembly elections knock at the doors of Karnataka as it seems that the Siddaramaiah led Congress government would leave nothing to defeat the BJP.
In a shocking revelation, it has come to light that the Siddaramaiah government is seeking to now appease the media persons from the ‘minority’ communities.
A circular issued by the Director of the state’s minority commission reads that special grants will be provided to journalists and news organisations from minority communities. Even journalists from the minority communities will get a special media kit containing a laptop, a handy cam, and a still camera.
The state government also intends to double monthly advertisements.
Sadananda Gowda, Union Minister of Statistics and Programme Implementation and former Karnataka chief minister, tweeted that it was “Appeasement at its height”.
This is the circular which is creating troubles:
Interestingly, enough, Arunachal Pradesh’s BJP government was never accused of appeasement when it announced grant for Christian missionaries.
