Kerala Demands That Karnataka Opens Border at Kasargod-Mangaluru: It has  been more than 3 days since Karnataka government restricted passage of  goods & vehicles

Kasaragod, Feb 23: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday requested the urgent intervention of the Centre on the new COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the Karnataka government on the entry of people from the state.

In a letter sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said many people including students, trucks carrying essential commoditiesand patients going for medical treatment were put to "undue hardship" at the state borders due to this.

He also brought to the PM's notice that imposing restrictions of inter-state movement of people by states is contrary to the instructions of the government of India.

"I request your urgent intervention in this matter so that hardship of people from Kerala travelling to the neighbouring state of Karnataka can be avoided," Vijayan said.

With the Karnataka government reinstating stricter control of transit passengers from Kerala in view of increasing COVID-19 positive cases, people bound to Mangaluru and other parts of Dakshina Kannada from here for various purposes, including medical needs and studies, were in a fix.

Long queues of vehicles could be seen in the border areas since Monday as Karnataka authorities sealed many roads, including national highways and restricted entry only for those with COVID-19 negative certificates.

The Dakshina Kannada authorities sealed all borders from Monday, except four to cross over, sources said.

According to Karnataka officials at the borders,those who wished to enter the state have to produce COVID-19 negative certificates through an RT-PCR test taken 72 hours prior to their cross over time.

Health and police personnel are on duty at the four borders, viz. Talapady in Mangalore taluk, Saradka in Bantwal, Nettanige-Mudnuru in Puttur taluk and Jalsoor in Sullia, to verify and allow people's entry into Karnataka.

Vijayapura, Feb 17: The BJP’s Karnataka unit chief Nalin Kumar Kateel said on Wednesday the Yediyurappa government might introduce a law against so called "love jihad" in the next assembly session.

"There is love jihad going on in the state. I am confident that in the next session our government will bring a law to control love jihad in the state," Kateel said after inaugurating the BJP state unit meet at the Kittur Rani Chennamma community building. 

In the recent past, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, both ruled by the BJP, have brought religious freedom laws to stop conversion through marriage or by any other fraudulent means.

 "Love Jihad" is a term used by right wing activists to refer to the alleged campaign of Muslims forcing Hindu girls to convert in the guise of love. Kateel said the state government has already fulfilled the long pending demand of ban on cow slaughter by bringing in a law in the previous legislature session.

Speaking about the administration of the BJP government in Karnataka, Kateel said Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has been striving hard to mop up more revenue.

The BJP government has made the state drug-free, he said and alleged that the previous Congress government ran on ''drug money''. 

"When the Congress government was ruling the state, they ran the administration using ''drug money'', whereas the Yediyurappa government made Karnataka drug-free," Kateel told the gathering.
