The BJP criticized the Karnataka government led by Siddaramaiah, accusing it of engaging in “land jihad” after announcing the allocation of two acres of land, valued at over Rs 500 crore, to the Minority Welfare Department.

Addressing the media, Leader of Opposition R. Ashoka expressed concern over the decision, stating, “While we have no issue with allocating vacant land, the government’s decision to allocate land belonging to the Department of Animal Husbandry is questionable.”

Sharing his views on social media platform X in Kannada, R. Ashoka labeled the move as “Congress sarkarada land jihad.”

He further said in the post, “Mr. CM Siddaramaiah shouldn’t there be a limit for the appeasement of Muslims? You are conspiring to allot two acres of land located in the heart of Bengaluru belonging to the Animal Husbandry department to Muslims.

“What was the necessity to shut down the government veterinary hospital which was treating cows and other animals and hand it over to Muslims?

“The veterinary hospital was not only established to treat the cattle, other pets were also given treatment there. We will not allow the handing over of Rs 500 crore worth land. Can we call this measure of the Congress government as land jihad?”

The Karnataka government on February 26 ordered to hand over the two acres of land in the Chalawadipalya Ward of the Chamrajpet Assembly constituency in Bengaluru for the construction of Moulana Azad/Morarji Desai Residential Schools to the Minority Welfare Department, said Ashoka.
