Ram Sene President Pramod Muthalik on Sunday criticised the JDS for opposing the anti-cow slaughter bill, alleging it was a move to please minorities and part of its "vote-bank politics" in Karnataka.
Speaking to reporters here, the leader of the right wing outfit also came down on 'intellectuals' opposed to the bill, saying it would in no way cause losses to farmers, as feared.
He said the Sene will stage protest dharnas in front of all offices of district deputy commissioners, demanding a ban on radical outfit Popular Front of India, which he alleged, was responsible for the growth of terrorism in the country.
Pointing out that the Kerala government had submitted a report to the union government on PFI's activities,he demanded that necessary steps be taken to ban PFI.
He flayed the Congress demand for a CBI probe into the illegal mining issue in Karnataka and alleged Congress leaders themselves were part of such activities.
