Belagavi: The people had 60 years of Congress rule and no fortune has reached them all these years. So, they are not interested in the misrule of the misfortune of the Congress Government, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Speaking after inaugurating BJP Jan Sankalp Yatra in Raibag on Wednesday November 9, he said that the previous Chief Minister Siddaramaiah put his picture on the rice supplied by the Government of India, and alleged he even looted it in PDS rice. They did not do work in the Minor Irrigation Department and made money from the soil of Bengaluru, Mangaluru and Ballari. They pushed the State down during their five-year ruling between 2013 and 2018. Now, the people are no longer interested in the misrule and tribulations of the Congress Government as they used power for selfish growth. The State electorate has made up their mind to bring back BJP to power in the State, he asserted.
Bommai said the fight between Leader of the Opposition in the State Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President D. K. Shivakumar is still not over. As soon as Mallikarjun Kharge became All India Congress Committee President of a sinking ship called Congress Party, Belagavi MLA Satish Jarkiholi termed Hindus as dirt and it was not known how he spoke like this. “The Sindhu culture had grown as Hindu religion at a time when no religion was born in the world. Satish has spoken very lightly of the Hindu religion which says that entire humanity is one family. Former AICC President Rahul Gandhi goes to temples during the elections, Siddaramaiah goes to temple after eating meat, he alleged and added, “while our work is building bonds in society, the Congress believes in divide and rule policy. Congress is dividing religions to grab power in the State. Rahul Gandhi Bharath Jodo yatra but India is united. You say Jodo, Satish Jarkiholi says Thodo. Ultimately, bad times have come for the Congress Party.”
