Mulki, Oct 19, 2014: Speaking at Mangalore & Shimoga divisional BJP workers meet in Mulki on Ocober 18, BJP National Vice President B S Yeddyurappa has flayed the Congress-led government in the State for not carrying forward the pro-people schemes initiated by the BJP government in the state. Citing the examples of poor implementation of Ganga Kalyana, Bhagyalakshmi, Bagarhukum scheme and Suvarna Grama schemes in the State, he said it clearly shows as how the state government is functioning.
Stating that party workers and leaders should be geared up to meet all the upcoming gram panchayat, taluk panchayat and zilla panchayat elections, he said that the workers should visit each and every house and inform the voters on the loopholes in the functioning of the Congressled government in the state.
“Ministers in the State government who are involved in land scams and are continuing to be in power. The State government has failed to initiate action against the police officer who has assaulted Sangh Parivar leader. The BJP will continue its fight demanding justice,” Yeddyurappa reiterated.
In an informal statement on the sidelines of the meet at Mulki, Former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa has questioned the rationale of the state government in rejecting the report of Justice B K Somasekhara Commission of Inquiry which probed attacks on churches in Karnataka in 2008. Terming it as ’political games’ , Yeddyurappa, under whose leadership these attacks took place said Congress state government is needlessly trying to stoke passions with its belated decision to dump the panel’s report.
Yedyyurappa said the state government is not interested in maintaining law and order and hence is creating fresh confusions each day with such decisions. "The then state government took all necessary steps to deal with the situation," he said, adding the Congress government is indulging in politics.
