Basavaraj Bommai’s government completed one year on Thursday. A program was organized to mark this occasion. On this occasion, a mega rally was scheduled to be held at Doddaballapur and BJP National President J P Nadda was scheduled to attend the same. But, Basavaraj Bommai canceled this program as a party worker Praveen Nettaru was murdered in the South Kannada district by Islamists.
Basavaraj Bommai said, “Yogi Adityanath is the right chief minister for the situation in Uttar Pradesh. Similarly, there are different ways to deal with the situation in Karnataka and all of them are being used. If the situation demands, the UP model will also be implemented in Karnataka.”

The term UP model means the strong measures taken by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to control anti-national activities in Uttar Pradesh, including the use of bulldozers against miscreants and mafia.
