Ex-Minister demands resignation of Karnataka Home Minister
Mysore, June 26: Former Minister and senior Congress leader H Viswanath today demanded the resignation of Karnataka Home Minister M P Prakash for not being aware of the disclosure of list of naxal sympathisers in the State by the police.
Talking to reporters here, he said Mr Prakash should have known the facts and names in the list.
Mr Viswanath condemned the Government's attitude for including the names of veteran farmer leader Kadidalu Shamanna and many university professors in the naxal list.
''Mr Prakash should also suspend the police officials concerned for releasing the list,'' he said.
Stating that Revenue Minister Jagadish Shettar was not aware of the recent decision regarding formation of two new districts in the State, he said it was another evidence that exposed the functioning of the government.
On land grabbing by various political leaders in the State, Mr Viswanath challenged Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to make their names public.
