Karnataka Congress hints at Banning Bajrang Dal, PFI in its Manifesto

BANGALORE: In its manifesto for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections, the Congress party announced on Tuesday that it was dedicated to taking tough and decisive action against those who and organisations who create animosity among communities on the basis of caste and religion. In its platform, the party pledges to ban groups like the Bajrang Dal and the Popular Front of India, claiming that they violate the law and the Constitution and incite animosity and hatred between groups.

The Congress platform states that "We would take decisive action as per law, including placing a ban on any such organisations.

"The Congress party is committed to taking strong and decisive action against individuals and organisations spreading hatred against communities on the basis of caste and religion," it also mentions.

"We believe that the law and the Constitution are sacred and cannot be violated by people or groups like Bajrang Dal, PFI, or others who incite animosity or hatred, whether among majority or minority communities," it said.

In the presence of former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, KPCC President DK Shivakumar, and Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera, the party's president, Mallikarjun Kharge, delivered the manifesto. The 'Sarva Janangada Shanthiya Thota' manifesto mentions five guarantees: Gruha Jyothi, Gruha Lakshmi, Anna Bhagya, Yuva Nidhi, and Shakti.

Amit Shah, the union home minister, had previously pleaded with voters to back the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the polls, saying that every vote for the BJP will shield the state from the outlawed organisation PFI.

 "Each vote counts, so make sure it goes to the right leadership," when speaking to a crowd in Shirahatti. Be aware that you are not casting your vote to choose a Chief Minister, MLA, or other officeholder when you click the "Lotus" symbol on the ballot in Karnataka. Your vote would help PM Modi create "Mahan Karnataka" by giving him more leverage. By voting, you will shield Karnataka from PFI, he said

It should be noted that the Ministry of Home Affairs designated the PFI and its affiliates as a "unlawful association" in September 2022 after investigations by several state police units and federal agencies revealed their involvement in violent acts.
