The Karnataka Congress government will review the largesse of the previous BJP government in allotting ‘hundreds of acres of land’ to RSS and its affiliated organisations, said Karnataka Health and Family Welfare Minister Dinesh Gundu Rao.
“Hundreds of acres of government land in the state have been transferred in the name of RSS and Sangh Parivar affiliated organisations,” the minister said in a press conference on Friday, reported PTI.
“This (allotment of land) should not happen. One should inform everything to the people. Nothing should be kept secret. People should know. Taking everything in one way is not proper. So we have to take steps,” the minister added.
When asked whether the government has taken any steps yet, Rao said: “It should happen at the government level where the revenue department and the chief minister have to see what has happened and how it has happened. They have to decide after seeing whether it has been done lawfully and for what price it has been allotted because these are all legal matters.”
He also said a few tenders issued by the BJP government have been cancelled while others will be looked into.
Rao also alleged that the objective of that saffron party was to meddle with history, create rift among people, and spread hatred, which they were doing at every level, be it in textbooks, or appointing such people in various organisations and allotting government land to RSS and its affiliated organisations.
