Bengaluru: “Only Prime Minister Narendra Modi can resolve the dispute over Kalasa-Banduri canal project”, said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah when questioned about the verbal battle between him and BJP leaders.

The CM said that Modi has been urged to convene a meeting of chief ministers of the three states Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra.

An agitated Siddaramaiah said that B S Yeddyurappa has turned desperate and therefore has been making such statements.

“He has no power. Nor was he inducted into the cabinet there (in New Delhi). As BJP national vice president, he should have prevailed upon Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to get farm loan sanctioned by public sector banks waived. Nearly 80 per cent of the loans of farmers were from these banks. If he is so determined, let him get these loan waived off by the Union government,” he added.

 On the Kalasa Banduri irrigation project, he reiterated that only person who could resolve this issue was Prime Minister Mr Modi.

The CM accused the state BJP leaders of politicising the issue. He further said that the BJP leaders had no guts to speak to Modi during the state all-party delegation met him.

As the BJP national vice-president, Yeddyurappa should convince the Prime Minister to convene a meeting of the chief ministers if he is really committed to protecting the interest of our farmers,” Siddaramaiah concluded.
