The Rediff Interview/Karnatka Home Minister Dr V S Acharya
'Pub culture is not desirable in India'
January 30, 2009
In an interview with rediff.com's Vicky Nanjappa, Dr Acharya claims that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government in the state acted swiftly and firmly against the culprits involved in the Mangalore attack.
Has your government succeeded in acting against the perpetrators of the Mangalore attack?
Do you agree with Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa's views about putting an end to the pub culture in the state?
Are you planning to take action against these pubs?
Is the BJP associated with the Shri Ram Sene?
But they seem to be taking advantage of the fact that the BJP is in power.
I firmly believe that the Sene is a tool in someone's hand, who is playing a game, to tarnish the BJP.
Can you substantiate that statement?
Shri Ram Sene activists have been equated to terrorists and intellectuals like U R Ananthamurthy feel that anti-terror laws should be used against them. Doesn't this call for a ban on the Sene to ensure a peaceful Karnataka?
