Asking people to vote for Congress in the Lok Sabha polls, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday said that the development of the state is possible only if the people support the party that “delivers on its promises.”

He was addressing the public after distributing the benefits of various schemes to the beneficiaries of the Congress party’s Guarantee Schemes. The event was organised by the Mandya District Administration and Zilla Panchayat.

“The people of the state have blessed us beyond our expectations in the last election. They made us win 136 seats in the state. The people of Karnataka have made a wise decision,” Siddaramaiah said.

He said that the people of Mandya also made the right decision even though they were given false promises and misled, he said.

“On the day of taking the oath, we decided to implement 5 guarantees in the Cabinet meeting. Shakti scheme has been launched where 3.50 crore women of the state can travel in government buses for free,” Siddaramaiah said.

He said that 50 to 60 lakh women are getting the benefit of this scheme.

600 crore has been released to the agriculture department for crop insurance and another 800 crore will be released. The state government has provided 631 crore to 33.25 lakh farmers as crop loss compensation of 2000 each, he said.

“Of late, JDS has a lot of love for BJP. The BJP is critical of our guarantees. They are working to mislead the farmers without telling the truth to them. We are on your side. Mandya district will be fully developed. 500 crores are being provided to the district. Earlier, when I was Chief Minister, emphasis was given to irrigation. The number of people dependent on agriculture has increased and we have invested in development. No matter what anyone says, people must make the ones who work win,” the CM said.

He said that 4.57 lakh women in Mandya have travelled for free.

“After coming to power by giving false promises, the previous government completely forgot the people. But we kept our promises. BJP came to power from the back door claiming to be pro-farmer and pro-poor, but did not fulfil any of its promises,” the Chief Minister said.

He asserted that Yediyurappa, the BJP, captured 17 MLAs during Kumaraswamy’s tenure as Chief Minister and used Operation Kamala to gain power covertly.

According to Siddaramaiah, Deve Gowda, the former prime minister who refrained from joining the “communalists,” is now endorsing them. In the next general elections, the chief minister pleaded with the populace to upend the unholy alliance between the BJP and JDS and allow the Congress candidates to triumph.

The Chief Minister said that under the Annabhagya scheme, the government intended to provide 5 kg of rice along with 5 kg from central government to make the state hunger-free.

“The central government did not cooperate. So instead of 5 kg, we are giving 170. Annabhagya financial assistance of 166 crore has been given to 4,38,705 beneficiaries in the district,” Siddaramaiah said.
