Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai described Telangana State Minister for IT and BT KT Rama Rao’s tweet as ridiculous.
"It is ridiculous. People from all over the world are coming down to Bengaluru. The city is home to the highest number of startups and unicorns,’’ said the chief minister.
Replying to a question about the Azaan issue, Bommai said, there is a High Court order regarding Azaan. “There is also an order asking as to why it has not been implemented. It even specifies the sound decibel level. There is an order to install Decibel meters. It is a job which needs to be implemented by taking everyone into confidence, not by force,’’ he said.
He said that all measures would be taken to ensure that no community or outfit takes law into its hands. We will take action to maintain peace and order. “All are equal for the State government. We will work without any differentiation or bias,’’ he said.
Reacting to former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy's statement that he would launch a protest against the State government from April 16, Bommai said, "everyone has the right to protest.
But I will not respond to baseless statements. BJP is a national party. People of Karnataka have blessed us. We are confident of giving good governance for the people. Many issues that he has raised are about orders issued in 2001, 2002 during the past regimes. I have not issued any new orders," Bommai said.
