Mekedatu padayatra: NCPCR seeks action against D K Shivakumar

Bengaluru, Jan 11 (IANS): The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has sent a letter to the Karnataka Police Department to initiate action against state Congress President D.K. Shivakumar for failing to follow Covid appropriate behaviour with school children during the 'Mekedatu Padayatra'. NCPCR has further asked the department to submit the Action Taken Report within seven days.

Priyank Kanoongo, Chairperson, NCPCR on Monday sent the letter to Praveen Sood, the Director General and Inspector General of Police, Karnataka in this regard.

"The commission has taken suo-moto cognizance of a video uploaded on Twitter wherein it can be seen that KPCC President D.K. Shivakumar met school children during the event Mekedatu Padayatra, thereby indulging children into political activity," the letter said.

In the said video, it can further be seen that the children as well as KPCC President are without masks further failing to follow Covid-19 appropriate behavior.

In view of the above, the Commission deems it appropriate to take cognizance under section 13 (1) (j) of CPCR Act, 2005, and observes prima-facie violation of provisions under Juvenile Justice Act, 2015, Epidemic Disease Act, 1897 and Disaster Management Act, 2005.

The letter further stated that it is requested to look into the allegations made against Shivakumar to ensure the welfare and safety of children and further submit an Action Taken Report within seven days.

The state police department has lodged an FIR against Shivakumar, Opposition leader Siddaramaiah and 30 others in connection with defying curfew orders and carrying out the padayatra.

Thousands are gathering for the padayatra, raising fears of the spread of Covid-19 in the state. However, Shivakumar had stated that the government is showing fake numbers to scuttle the padayatra. He has also refused to undergo Covid test.

    NCPCR should focus on children's condition in this state, many couldn't afford online education back then. Where was NCPCR then? Isn't education every child's rights?

    Govt seems to be barking from a distance - No direct action - Weakness exposed- -- again and again -- This is the Third wave and lessons not learnt - The problem is the right people and experts not consulted - Also Data gathering - Data sharing - Competent people are silenced-- That means -- Virologists -- epidemiologist -- experts -- Data all are either suppressed or not used-- Only we have few doctors coming on TV channels -- from Private hospitals -- advising -- Each have their own specialization and cannot interchange roles--

    Shivakumar's pose is not less than a Hero of common man. He has the looks of angry & confident man ready to face tens of other chamchas who run after money and sell themselves for Crores of Rupees. In the battle field of politics we need a true warier who can lead the fight and work, protect his subjects. Let us wish unconditional love and respect and support to him to rejuvenate congress party and build a solid opposition toBJP . Nothing is impossible provided we give a try. India needs to be saved from wrong doers.

    Why to indulge kids in political activities, especially when COVID cases are rising. Not ready to take COVID test, atleast can wear a mask. These guys do not even care about those children, they just want to pose that even children's support them. Such an irresponsible selfish idiots these politicians are.

    Karnataka Police should also investigate This elite, bigPharma, communist chinese mafia forcing injections on Our Police Force, Doctors and now Children also in the name of covid and very basic COMMON virus detecting RTPCR tests to justify same with these hyped covid case numbers and some of their designed injections get produced in India ? to fool the whole world ? ....... Karnataka police should also investigate these RTPCR tests which is COMMON viral tests which detect past, present and future years' corona flu viruses and chinese lab modified corona based virus as covid 19. As corona viruses, adeno viruses and some others viruses also called as common cold viruses. Also if this RTPCR test magnifying factor or CT value kept above 35 (currently mostly 40), even dead viral or viral fragments it detects as virus presence or positive. Using these hyped numbers as justification, that's how elite, communist chinese BigPharma mafia does huge vaccine business using same fear of viruses mostly common flu. Not only business but depopulation and enslaving humanity with slowly pushing hightech mRNA boosters, targetting or trying to collapse of military, police force, medical infrastructure, financial institutions for chaos and in the name of controlling chaos their, chinese, vast 200 million military can come in or invade to install their puppet dictators in various nations. ....... Awaken India movement doing wonderful job raising criminal cases in Bombay high court and Supreme court, hearing is on. That's what this china virus, strains, vaccine is all about to enslave most of the nations and humanity. ......... And recently police caught petty thieves ? faking these RTPCR tests ? when these communist chinese want to poke them with deadly injections ? and need investigate 2nd wave police and doctors deaths as these deaths were after vaccinations which supposed to protect them from covid ? Remmember BigPharma and their doctors slogan once vaccinated mild infections only and no deaths ? Valid only for them as they take placeboes or saline water only?

    Everything from the PCR tests to the masks to the idea of “asymptomatic spread” is FRAUDULENT? And Masks make you more likely to catch an unusual bacterial pneumonia ? Following part of recent interview given by Ex Pfizer VP dated January 10, 2022 at naturalnews ... "In fact, Yeadon is not necessarily convinced that the Fauci Flu even exists as claimed. If by some off chance it is something more than just a nasty seasonal flu, it still is not even close to being as deadly as the media and governments continue to claim it is. “It turns out that it’s not a particularly lethal virus, if it exists,” Yeadon stated during the symposium. “Or it’s about the same as a bad seasonal influenza.” Everything from the PCR tests to the masks to the idea of “asymptomatic spread” is fraudulent, Yeadon warns. PCR tests “don’t tell you anything,” he says, and cloth masks “if anything make you more likely to catch an unusual bacterial pneumonia because you’re breathing through a filthy cloth.”... Ref:

    real kujuma, kodial Making people to stand him and shout pro slogans during any rallys or protest is different and voting for him is different. If all people gather for the rally's or protest support ur so called bande, then there would not have been any space to win for any other parties.... :).. Similarly if all who are in BD or VHP or RSS vote only for BJP then there is no way for other parties to win atleast 50 seats in india.
