Pragativahini News, Tumkur :The Congress Party will completely perish in the State, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Rs 2 lakh crore borrrowing
Bommai said the state’s development was limping and there was no Covid-19 epidemic when Siddaramaiah was the chief minister. The financial position was in a very bad state. But still, the Siddaramaiah Government imposed a loan of Rs 2 lakh crore on the people of Karnataka. With so much borrowing the State should have been developed. The BJP in its five year ruling had spent Rs 32,000 crore to irrigate 7 lakh hectares of land. In contrast, the Congress government had irrigated just 2 lakh acres of land by spending Rs 54,000 crore during its five years of ruling. “Where that money went…to whose pocket that money went”.
The CM termed Congress as “Gangotri of Corruption’ and said the Lokayukta institution was closed to start the Anti-Corruption Bureau as over 50 cases were pending against the chief minister and his cabinet colleagues. The ACB filed a ‘B’ report on all the cases despite having evidence for many cases. The closure of Lokayukta is the best example of the corruption of the Congress Party. The Congress ministers looted many government departments for five years and they did not spare even the rice distributed to poor people under ‘Anna Bhagya’ scheme.
The CM said there is pro-BJP wave all over Tumkur district and the response of people has been tremendous in Hyderabad-Karnataka, Central Karnataka and Mumbai-Karnataka region. The welfare programs of both the state and the union governments are making the people support BJP. In 2018 Assembly polls, BJP had lost in Kunigal, Tumkur Rural, Koratagere and Madhugiri by a small margin and in the next election the saffron party will sweep all the seats.
