Karnataka BJP MLA MP Renukacharya on Wednesday said he will resign if the state government does not take action against the attackers of the party's Yuva Morcha worker Praveen Nettaru, reported India Today.
"If our government does not take strict action against the miscreants responsible for the killings of Hindu activists, I am ready to resign as MLA," he said.
Renukacharya urged his party's government to take action "on the model of Yogi Adityanath’s government". “Only if our government takes strict action against the miscreants on the model of Yogi Adityanath’s government, our government and organisation can remain charismatic," he said.
The MLA further said the government must punish the attackers if it "wants to restore the faith of Hindu activists". “What is the use of being in power if we cannot protect our Hindu workers?” he asked.
