Bengaluru: The  Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday demanded the disqualification of Karnataka Urban Development Minister and Hebbal MLA, Suresha B S (commonly known as Byrathi Suresh), from the state assembly. This demand came after his alleged associates were apprehended for producing counterfeit Aadhaar cards, voter IDs, PAN cards, and driving licenses.

The BJP's Karnataka unit has filed a complaint with the Election Commission of India (ECI), urging an investigation by either the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or the National Investigation Agency (NIA). They said that the actions of the three individuals who were detained by the police, which involved creating counterfeit identification documents, pose a threat to national security.

BJP files complaint 

A delegation led by Rajaji Nagar BJP MLA and former minister S Suresh Kumar submitted their complaint to the office of the Chief Electoral Officer regarding this matter. They said that an FIR was filed against Mounesh Kumar, Bhagat, and Raghavendra. These individuals were allegedly found creating counterfeit and fraudulent Aadhaar cards, voter IDs, driving licenses, PAN cards, and other documents in their business establishment, MSL Techno Solutions, located in RT Nagar.

The BJP leaders in its complaint said that fabricating counterfeit Aadhaar cards is a national crime and a major national security concern. Such fraudulent acts can lead to illegal immigrants and non-residents falsely claiming citizenship in the country. It is a huge drain on the exchequer as social welfare schemes and policies meant for original poverty-ridden Indian residents are taken away by immigrants, the BJP said in its complaint, the BJP said.

BJP demands NIA or CBI probe 

"This colossal fraud of a large magnitude is being incited by local politicians and the MLA of the Congress party at Hebbal constituency and political protection is given to illegal immigrants by using the Aadhaar scheme," the BJP said. Such persons who give this political protection to illegal immigrants must be treated as a threat to national security. In their madness to hold power, they are using the Aadhaar scheme to create vote banks of minorities, the party charged.

"We request that a case of criminal breach of trust against the MLA and his associates be booked immediately. Since this is an issue of national sovereignty and security, the case must be handed over to the NIA or CBI to ensure that the offenders do not go scot-free," the party said.

The BJP has called for a thorough investigation, treating this incident as an affront to India's national sovereignty, integrity, and security. The party insists that all those involved, including the MLA, should be held accountable and face legal consequences for violating their oath and betraying the trust of their public office.

"In the above facts and circumstances, it is most respectfully requested before the authorities to initiate appropriate investigation by the CBI or any central agencies and suitable action in accordance of law against the above-named accused and their close associates of Sri Byrathi Suresh (MLA Hebbal) with regard to the above illegal activities and disqualify him from the Karnataka Legislative Assembly," the party said.
