Bengaluru, Sept 27: Karnataka Minister for Tourism, C T Ravi on Sunday said that he was ready to resign the Minister post and devote himself to strengthening the party whenever the party instructs.

Speaking to newsmen here, he said that his main objective will always be party organization.

"I was not expecting the post of BJP general secretary. I have never worked with any aspiration. Party loyalty and hard work is my principle. I have always handled all responsibilities handed to me," he added.

Talking to reporters after being elected as National General Secretary of the BJP, Ravi said that he could never accomplish what late leader Ananth Kumar has but will try to reach the heights reached by him. Such a chance is only possible in our party. I will be working in Stat-level and will not be working with the party in Delhi. My first priority will be party organization.

Speaking on the bandh called by some farmer organisations Ravi said: “If ten traders come to the farmers’ doorstep to buy their produce then it is good for the farmers. Farmers will get a fair price. I request all farmers not to fall prey to politically motivated actions. Congress itself had promised this in their manifesto. Why are they opposing it now?”

Bengaluru, Oct 14: The Central Crime Branch of police probing the attack on the house of MLA R Akhanda Srinivas Murthy during the violence that rocked Bengaluru in August following his kin’s provocative Facebook post has come to a conclusion that rivalry within Congress party had resulted in brazen attack.

The CCB police on Tuesday filed an interim chargesheet naming 60 accused, including ex-mayor Sampath Raj, his assistant Arun, car driver Santosh, and former Pulakeshinagar ward corporator Abdul Rakeeb Zakir.

Attributing the attack to internal party rivalry, police said Sampath Raj and Zakir, who had issues with Murthy, took advantage of the situation on the night of August 11, when KG Halli and DJ Halli areas erupted in violence.

The 400-page charge sheet said the violence started after the MLA’s nephew Naveen posted derogatory statements against the Muslim community. A couple of youths gathered in front of Naveen’s house in Kavalbyrasandra and shouted slogans.

Sampath Raj and Zakir hatched a plan to provoke the crowd to go to the MLA’s house. The crowd later set fire to the house. “On the instruction of Sampath Raj, his personnel assistant, car driver and Zakir’s associate Majnu conspired and provoked the mob,” police said.
