Ballari: The Congress Party has a culture of offering ‘Kappa Kanike’ (payment) and they have made Karnataka as an ATM. However, this culture does not exist in BJP, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Speaking after inaugurating Jana Sankalp Yatra in Huvinahadagali here on Thursday October 13, he said a Former CM of Congress has spoken about making ‘Kappa Kanike’ and this culture exists only in the Congress Party. As long as that party was in power in Karnataka they had made this state as an ATM. The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President was caught by the Enforcement Directorate when he had gone to pay ‘Kappa Kanike’. “We need not take lessons from you. The people are vigilant. You looted the sttate in the name of Bhagyas. The Anna Bhagya Scheme was launched and misused. Money was looted in the name of sinking the borewells of SC/ST beneficiaries. If you had given the bhagyas why did the people defeat you? If Karnataka is lagging in development it is due to corruption of the previous Congress Government.”

He said the Bharath Jodo Yatra of Congress Party is coming here on Friday October 14. The people of Ballari had elected and sent Sonia Gandhi to Lok Sabha but she resigned this seat and fled to Uttar Pradesh. She had promised a Rs. 3,000 Crore package. Where did it go? She took your votes but never came back to see you all. The Congress leaders are giving false assurances. Now her son is coming and the people must ask him, what did she do when they had voted for her? Have you come to tell similar lies? The people of Ballari must send a clear message that lies will not work here, he urged.

Bommai said Veteran Politician M. P. Prakash who had opposed the Congress Party all throughout his life, had joined that party. The Congress means defeat and those who join that party would lose in the election. The dream projects of Prakash will be implemented by the incumbent Government, he assured.
