Mangaluru, Nov 04, 2015: Speaking at the ’Antyodaya Samavesha organised by the State BJP Backward Classes and SC/ST Morcha at Sanghaniketan in Mangaluru, BJP MP from Ballari Sriramulu said that the party would emerge as the ruling party with a thumping majority in the next Legislative Assembly elections.
He said it was true that the BJP had lost in the last Assembly elections owing to its own mistakes. But the errors will be rectified and all its members will stay united to face the next Assembly elections in 2017-18. He said that BJP would be victorious in the next elections.
He further said that the Antyodaya Samaveshas were being held statewide to create awareness among people on the failures of the State government. Terming Chief Minister Siddaramaiah as a self-proclaimed leader of the backward classes, Sriramulu said that the CM had not done much for the welfare of the downtrodden. He alleged that the Siddaramaiah government had stopped many welfare programmes started by the earlier BJP government in the State.
As per the report of the Human Resource Ministry of the Central government, 1,734 schools have no teachers in the State. The government has neglected education among backward classes and SC/ST communities. During the tenure of the BJP government the State was in the fourth place in industrial development and now its has slipped to the 11th place, he said and added that the economy of the State was in utter chaos.
State BJP Vice President and Karkala MLA Sunil Kumar said that out of the Rs 16,000 crore earmarked in the budget for the development of the backward classes and SC/STs, less than Rs 3,500 was spent till today.
The law and order has failed in the State completely and in particulary in the Dakshina Kannada district. Four youth have been murdered in a week. He urged that all four ministers from the district should stepdown from their posts.
The CM has hurt the feelings of the majority by giving a public statement on the consumption of beef, he said and strongly condemned the statement.
Inaugurating the Samavesha, former minister Govind Karjol alleged that the State government had neglected the schemes such as Bhagya Lakshmi and Sandhya Suraksha, introduced by the earlier BJP government. People who have progressed under the government are those who are part of sand and land mafia. Govind, meanwhile, criticised the State government for not being able to manage the power crisis in the State.
