President of the Karnataka unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) K.S. Eshwarappa said here on Monday that some of the boards and corporations would be reconstituted after the budget session.
Addressing presspersons, he said that it would be ensured that all districts and castes got proper representation. Legislators from some areas had not been given ministerial berths; such districts would be rewarded by nominating loyal party workers as heads of boards or corporations. Mr. Eshwarappa took objection to B.K. Somasekhara, heading the inquiry commission on church attacks, revealing the contents of the interim report even before it was submitted to the government. He broke the tradition by doing so.
Mr. Eshwarappa said the report had not said who were responsible for the attacks. It had not stated that the Sangh Parivar groups were responsible for it. He alleged that Mr. Somasekhara had given scope for the Opposition to use the report “as a tool for seeking votes.” Those who attacked churches or mosques were “traitors.”
Home Minister V.S. Acharya said that according to provisions of the Commissions of Inquiry Act, 1952, such reports should be first submitted to the government.
BJP to look into breach
D.V. Sadananda Gowda, MP, said that some elected members of the BJP had felt that the action of Mr. Somasekhara amounted to breach of privilege.
The party would seriously look into this, he said.
