Hundreds of Covid positive people participating in Mekedatu padayatra: Home minister


Bengaluru, Jan 12 (IANS): Slamming the Congress for organising a ten-day 'padayatra' demanding speedy implementation of Mekedatu project by the ruling BJP in Karnataka, state Home Minister Araga Jnanendra on Wednesday stated that hundreds of participants in the rally are Covid positive.

"I have information that hundreds of people who are taking part in the padayatra are Covid positive. Some of the leaders who participated have already tested positive and under treatment. Several of the leaders are participating despite testing positive," he alleged.

Before the 'padayatra', the number of cases in Ramnagar and Mandya districts were very less. After the inauguration of padayatra, both districts are witnessing a surge in Covid cases, he said.

Araga Jnanendra had earlier said that Congress leaders will have to take responsibility if the situation of lockdown arises in the state because of the event. He had also stated that the government will make a decision after discussion to prevent padayatra from entering Bengaluru.

Some of the statements by the Congress leaders are detrimental to the interests of the state on the Mekedatu project as the matter is being taken up by the Supreme Court soon, he stated.

If the surge in cases continues, there may be a situation of imposing lockdown in the state. Some of the states in the country have already imposed a lockdown. However, lockdown is our last option, he stated.

However, the 'padayatra' continued on the fourth day. Congress state President D.K. Shivakumar and Opposition leader Siddaramaiah are leading the protest march participated by thousands of people and party workers. The padayatra was inaugurated on January 9 and will conclude on the 19th.

    For an innocent Disha RAVI climate activist.. Police came from Delhi arrested arbitrarily took her to Delhi without any rights .. Later ..that the court rapped the govt is different matter ... Judge had taken govt to task ....before issuing bail to Disha RAVI .. So action only selectively.. .. Father Stan swamy late .. other professors .. students etc .. Now in face of a strong leader .. massive crowds .. Govt is exposed ... Showing their total weakness .. taking cover and random non serious statements..

    I saw the padayatra on national TV. Even congress wants them to be arrested so they can gain few sympathy votes as well take good rest but let the govt not arrest and let them complete the padayatra; just one day Sidda returned back with fever (he knew he cannot complete) and DKShi could not even stand and just imagine how his condition will be after 10 days, lol. Let him struggle and fall ill and transmit his covid to all congress workers and then take action according to law and put them all under one roof! Let us not arrest them now and give them rest nor any sympathy votes

    If one tests with this common cold virus also detecting RTPCR, half of the state would show positive. This Omicron seems to be another fast spreading but not deadly virus, deliberately released by evil communist chinese and elite BigPharma to force everyone more DEADLY boosters. Eugenics Elite and BigPharma, communist chinese for depopulation and rake billions in vaccine business and for world control. USING VIRUS and VACCINE they seems to be bringing world under their control or their new world order. That too with common cold and forced injections!

    The Congress pays the price for objecting to each and everything. Especially when you are down and out of power, these type of initiatives only backfire with a huge boom. Lets pray for the speedy recovery of the affected ones. Hope they are vaccinated.

What is humorous is that this 'Goat Crossing ' is going on with thousands participating and the CM says that the strict Lockdown, curfew rules in the State are to continue till month end !! What duffers we are surrounded with !!! God save Karnataka ! Please cleanse Vidhana Soudha folks in 2023 by packing of all old and rotten stuff. Please Give Vidhana Soudha a new solid face lift !

    Truth only started after 2014 you mean and also faithful. Before that everyone was untruthful and unfaithful. Even during good times or bad times truthful people existed and corrupt also existed. Otherwise why there was "Kurukshetra " and "Lanka dahan".They had their choices and we have ours

That which cannot be fixed, always present irrespective of any happening and can never be experimented or twisted to suit anything or anybody is truth. The sad thing is that from Ages those who speak and lead the path of Truth are ' Crucified '.. Right??

    As a precursor to the upcoming Paryayotsava in Sri Krishna Math, the ascending Swamiji Sri Vidyasagara Theertha of Krishnapur Math inaugurated the Ugrana (warehouse) named Sumedha on Tuesday, January 11, situated in a parking area. What about this . Have you seen the rush & people crowded with some no mask & social distance? The Mangalore & Udupi dioceses have cancelled the Bikarnakkatte feast & Attur Chruch feast Due to the sike of Corona cases , But our CM gave permission for this Why???? why diffrenences

    As a home minister, you should have ordered arrest of all. Why you did not do that? Because of losing vote bank? Laws are only for common man. For these politicians and powerful persons there are no restrictions.
