Anti-superstition Bill, CM blames vested interests for not bringing it
Expressing helplessness over government’s inability in bringing his pet “anti-superstition” bill into effect, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday blamed “vested interests” for it.
Karnataka Cabinet which had discussed the proposed ‘Karnataka Prevention and Eradication of Human Sacrifice and Other Inhuman Evil and Aghori Practices and Black Magic Bill’ during its sittings in July had referred it to a cabinet sub-committee headed by Revenue Minister Kagodu Thimmappa. It was then said that most of the Ministers wanted the bill to be studied in detail before coming to any decision.
Besides Thimmappa, the committee consists of Health Minister Ramesh Kumar, Law Minister T B Jayachandra, Environment Minister Ramanath Rai and Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya.
