Mangaluru, April 22,2017 : Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Ananth Kumar who is in the city on April 22, Saturday to attend a couple of programmes, addressed a press meet and launched a tirade against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
The Chief Minister is day dreaming, said Ananth Kumar and predicted that the Congress will face a defeat in the next Assembly elections. The Government has also lost the confidence of farmers and the backward classes, he alleged. The Union Minister also lashed out at the Congress for being keeping the constitutional status to OBC Commission Bill on hold in the Rajya Sabha. He declared that the BJP would strive to get the Constitutional status to the Commission.
Referring to the recent win of the BJP in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, he said the results revealed the Trust which the people had on Prime Minister Modi. The Union Government policies are aimed at uplifting the poor and the backward classes, he said.
