After BJP supporters were allegedly stabbed in Karnataka's Mangaluru during PM Modi's swearing-in ceremony, State Minister of Health and Family Welfare Dinesh Gundu Rao asserted that police have been directed to take strict action against the accused. Speaking to the reporters, Dinesh Gundu Rao assured of strict police action and said, "We have told the police to take strict action. Police have already taken strict action, and there is no question of any interference from anybody. Whoever does anything wrong, Police will have to take action as per law..."

Affirming zero political interference, the state minister said, "Whatever the reasons may be, there is no excuse for such kind of behaviour. And the police will take action and there will be no political interference. He added further, "We want peace and harmony in this district. Whoever takes the law into their own hands, action will be taken..."

Earlier on Sunday, two BJP workers, namely Harish and Nandkumar, were allegedly stabbed while one worker named Krishna Kumar, was assaulted by a group of 20-25 individuals while they were celebrating Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony by chanting "Bharat Mata ki Jai" under the Konaje police station limits at Boliyar in Karnataka's Mangaluru, said the police. A day before, the state unit of the party lashed out at the government led by the Congress, claiming that it feels like the "Tughlak era" is back in Karnataka.

Taking to 'X', the Karnataka BJP wrote, "It feels like the Thuglak era is back in Karnataka, where shouting "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" is no longer safe. The growing hatred for Bharath under @siddaramaiah is deeply alarming. BJP workers Harish Anchan and Nandakumar, who were celebrating PM Modi's electoral victory and shouting "Bharath Mata ki Jai" in Mangaluru, were brutally stabbed by Aboobakkar, Bashir, Siddik, Monu, and 20 others." The BJP further claimed that this heinous act highlights the deteriorating law-and-order situation.

"This heinous act highlights the deteriorating law-and-order situation in Karnataka under the Congress government. The rise in violent incidents and unchecked aggression is creating an atmosphere of fear and instability. This is a stark reminder of the increasing violence and chaos, underscoring the urgent need for stronger governance and security measures to protect citizens and maintain peace", it added. (ANI)
