K’taka, Rlys adopts model
Although the CM has received criticism from opposition parties, Karnataka Prime Minister BS Yeddiyurappa said he would also take similar measures against the protesters. Yogi's model is also followed by the Railways.
Meanwhile, the prime minister said that because the protests were caused by rumors and misinformation, police should communicate with people, especially among the minority community, and tell them that CAA will not take away their citizenship. For this, you must get help from the intellectual class, media professionals, teachers, doctors and religious leaders.
