Bengaluru, Nov 23: Dr K Narayan of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was declared elected unanimously to the Rajya Sabha from Karnataka Legislative Assembly on Monday.

Vidhana Soudha, the State Secretariat, Secretary Vishalakshi, declared Dr Narayan, a businessman with the BJP and RSS background, as elected unanimously since there were no other candidates in the fray and today was the last date for withdrawal of the nomination.

Narayan is also Editor of "Tuluvere Kedige" Tulu magazine.

The seat fell vacant following the death of Ashok Gasti recently.

Opposition Congress and JDS did not contest as they don't have sufficient numbers of members to defeat the ruling party candidate.

Udupi, Dec 3: Anti-conversion laws introduced in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh are being studied in Karnataka to bring out a new legislation to prohibit religious conversion for the sake of marriage in the state, said home minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Speaking to reporters here today, he said Karnataka is gearing up for a law against love jihad. “When UP, MP and Haryana governments proposed laws against 'love jihad', we also planned a similar legislation in the state. Discussions were on to finalise how the law should be framed and elements to be incorporated here,” he said.

Chief minister B S Yediyurappa has already backed the proposal during a BJP executive committee meeting held in Mangaluru recently. “There is no confusion about the law against ‘love jihad’. It is a social evil. Though only a few cases are brought to light, most of the instances go unnoticed,” he claimed.
