Yeddyurappa on Sunday demanded immediate arrest and strict action against Amnesty International India for allegedly raising anti-India slogans. Yeddyurappa said such things should not be promoted and no one should support such causes. "The government should take necessary action against those violating these things. They must be arrested immediately and I have been telling this frequently that nobody should support such things," said Yeddyurappa. Karnataka Home Minister G. Parameshwara had yesterday said Amnesty International was not wrong in organising the event and it did not amount to sedition.
