Law & order in Karnataka well under control: Governor

Bangalore, Feb 25 (PTI) Addressing both houses of legislature, Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj today said there was no terror strike in the state in 2009 and no major law and order problems were caused by Naxals.

"There was no terrorist strike during the year. The year 2009 also showed a vast improvement on the Naxal front. No civilian or policeman was killed by Naxals and no major law and order incidents involving naxals were reported during the year", Bhardwaj said addressing the joint sitting of legislatures.

"It is for the first time in five years that there has been no death on account of police firing during the last one year," he said.

The Opposition Congress and JDS, however, described the governor's address as "directionless" and lacking "foresight", but Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa disagreed with them saying "the address portrayed government's achievements".
