BENGALURU: Leader of Opposition in Karnataka Assembly R Ashoka on Thursday alleged that the Karnataka government is giving the animal husbandry property in Bengaluru to minorities in a bid to appease them and termed it a “big scandal”.

“The goverment of Siddaramaiah, they are giving the animal husbandry property in Bengaluru, which is worth more than Rs 500 crore to minorities because minorities are more. It is a big scandal. The BJP will protest inside and outside Vidhana Soudha”.

In post on X, the Opposition leader in the Assembly, asked what was the necessity of closing down the government veterinary clinic that treats cattle and giving it to minorities.

“Land Jihad of Congress Government, CM @siddaramaiah you dare to give two acres of valuable animal husbandry land in the heart of Bengaluru city to Muslims. What was the necessity of closing down the government veterinary clinic that treats cattle and giving it to Muslims? That clinic is not set up only for cattle. The treatment of other domestic animals was also established. We will not let the land in the heart of the city, worth more than five hundred crores, be handed over”, he posted on X.

He further asked “Can this move by Congress Govt be called Land Jihad by @INCKarnataka government? Ashoka further suggested that state government that if the government wants to please minorities they can buy or purchase land and give it to them. “Why take land dedicated to animal husbandry department. Where should the pet or domesticated animals of that area go?” he added.

“What we are demanding is don’t make Vidhana Soudh Pakistan agents spot or pro-Pakistan slogan raisers. They are brining censored videos to prove themselves right. They haven’t taken action against those who raised slogans. We are protesting for nation and to keep our nationality safe. Dignity of the nation is degraded and Home Minister also admitted that they are bens asked about what happened”, he added.
