Udupi BJP unit stages dharna; demands Pramod Madhwaraj’s resignation


In wake of the attacks on the Udupi Deputy Commissioner and other officials, the district BJP unit staged a dharna in front of the Clock Tower on Monday and demanded the resignation of district in-charge Minister Pramod Madhwaraj.

The protestors reportedly accused the Minister of shielding those involved in sand mining at Kandlur and Halnadu.

Prior to the dharna, Mattar Ratnakar Hegde, president of the district unit of the party, told the media that it was known that sand from the district was being transported to neighbouring districts and Kerala. BJP has been urging for an independent sand policy for three coastal districts, but so far nothing has been done, he added.

He said that either Pramod Madhwaraj had to resign or Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had to drop him from the Ministry.
