The Dr. Babu Jagjivan Ram Abviruddi Mathi Horata Samiti has demanded that the State government order a judicial inquiry into the “unprovoked” lathi-charge on members of the Madiga Meesalathi Horata Samiti, who allegedly attempted to enter the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha premises in Belgaum on Tuesday.

Members of the samiti, under the leadership of district president Vittal R. Allagi, took out a procession here on Wednesday from Jagat Circle to Vikas Soudha and staged a demonstration. They demanded stern action against the police officials responsible for ordering the lathi-charge. They demanded immediate implementation of the recommendations of the Sadashiva commission.
