Mangalore: Former union minister Janardhan Poojary has condemned the attack on a girl by ABVP members in Bellare of Sullia taluk.
Talking to the reporters on Friday he alleged that ABVP members have forced students of various colleges to support the recent college bandh called by them. "As per the directions of the Supreme Court bandhs should not be called. The act of ABVP calling for bandh is contempt of court," he added.

He alleged that though ABVP members have assaulted the girl, the state government has not taken any action on them as it is the organization is the youth wing of the BJP. "Recently the government has even decided to withdraw eight cases registered against ABVP members," he added.
While talking about the coal scam he said the Prime Minister is ready to answer all allegations in the Parliament but the BJP is not allowing the Parliament to function.
"How can the BJP demand resignation of the Prime Minister, when he is not given any chance to clarify his stand," he added.
