In Shivamogga district, there was a sizable demonstration in opposition to the execution of the former judge Sadashiva Commission’s report regarding the reservation outside the home of BJP veteran and former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa


     Agitating members of the Banjara community attacked Yediyurappa’s home with stones, injuring some police officers in the process. The state government’s announcement of internal reservation for members of scheduled Castes (SCs) was the target of the protest.

     Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC have been implemented in the town as a result of this protest. Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka, has attributed this protest to the Congress party.

     People are being provoked by local Congress leaders, because Congress found it difficult to comprehend the social justice served to every community, and it led to inciting violence. He advised the Banjara community to avoid believing any hearsay.

     When the gathering went out of control, police used lathi charges resulting in some Banjara community members being hurt. Last week, the Karnataka Cabinet decided to implement internal reservations for SCs.

     According to the government, after increasing the Schedule Caste ratio from  from 15% to 17.5%, 6% of the reservation will be given to the SC left sub-category, 5.5% to the SC right sub-category, 4.5% to Touchables, 1% to others.

     In a letter to the Centre, the state administration pleaded to adopt the idea in the ninth schedule of the constitution. Bommai emphasized that the government had adopted the recommendations of the cabinet subcommittee rather than those of the Sadashiva Commission, urging the leaders of the Banjara community to take precautions.

     They (the Lambanis) worry about being taken off the SC list. “I gave the directive for the SC list to continue to include Bovi, Lamani, and other groups like the Korcha and Korma populations. Removal is not a possibility. Thus, a directive was approved and forwarded to the national government. Nobody should be afraid,” according to Bommai.

     In addition, he made it clear that the SC reservation for the “touchable” has been raised from 3% to 4.5%. “We’ve met all of their requirements. There is no ambiguity about that, I want to assure the community leaders from Banjara.”

     “The interests of your community were safeguarded by us (the BJP government). To people dwelling in Lamani Tandas, we have given out 2.5 lacks “Hakku Patra” (hamlets). Hence, this only works in your favor,” the CM said. “Violence shouldn’t have any place, here. Sitting across the table from each other can help settle any problems,” he said.
