In a stern warning to the BJP,RSS leader Madan Das Devi on Sunday said the Karnataka government should not succumb to the mining lobby and not allow it to call the shots.
No extra Constitutional body should control an elected government. No one can be powerful always,he said without naming the Reddy brothers the state ministers who are in the eye of a storm in the illegal mining issue.
His warning assumes significance as the BJP has been in a spot over the illegal mining issue and the Congress going all out to expose the involvement of the Reddy brothers from Bellary in it.
To another question on the issue,Devi,speaking during the I-Day function at the RSS HQ said BJP government should not compromise on basic (RSS) principles.
