Bengaluru: “When India is growing as a strong nation the Bharat Jodo by the Congress Party has no meaning,” said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Speaking to mediapersons after inaugurating 61st National Open Athletics Championship – 2022 here on Saturday October 15, he sought to know what is the meaning of Bharath Jodo Yatra? Already, the country has been marching ahead as a united India. The question of refixing does not arise. India is united and making rapid progress on the international level. While the whole world is facing economic recession including G-7 nations in general and the United States of America, India has maintained a minimum GDP of 7 per cent. Since the first missile of Former All India Congress Committee President Rahul Gandhi has failed now he is trying for its relaunch. Apart from this, the Jodo Yatra has absolutely no meaning, he noted.

Asked what he will like to ask Congress leaders about the Bharat Jodo convention in Ballari, he said All India Congress Committee President Sonia Gandhi had contested from Ballari along with Raebareli in Uttar Pradesh in Lok Sabha polls, and after she won the seats, Sonia quit the Ballari seat and retained Raebareli seat. She did not acknowledge the people of Ballari for voting for her. The special package of Rs. 3,000 Crore announced by her before quitting the Ballari seat, never became a reality. With what face the Congress leaders doing Padayatra in Ballari and are it not cheating the people of Ballari? he questioned

Bommai said the three-day Jan Sankalp yatra evoked a good response in four districts and has boosted the morale of workers. This has increased the confidence of people in the BJP. There is no doubt of Jan Sankalp Yatra became Vijay Sankalp Yatra by reaching 150 seats in 2023, he stressed.

Reacting to the Leader of Opposition in the State Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah’s challenge for him to walk four km without falling down, the CM said he has made personal comments on him for which there will be no comments from his side. Let God give Siddaramaiah good health and long life, he added.

On the growing demand to appoint a new seer for the Murugha Matha, he said a delegation of devotees led by Former Minister Ekantaiah met and explained everything including problems faced by the matha administration. Since the matha is governed by trust, suitable action will be taken within the legal framework, he said.

Reacting to problems faced by sportspersons following renting out Kanteerava Stadium for Football, the CM said it is being done by Karnataka Athletics Association and that falls within its powers. The Government has absolutely no role in it. The responsibility of the association was to protect the newly-laid track without causing any damage. However, the persons responsible will be summoned and warned, he informed.
