CM Siddaramaiah Launches Development Works worth Rs 1200 crore in Bhatkal
Bhatkal: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah accused that some political parties have been attempting to divide the society on communal lines and take political advantage in the coming polls which should be stopped.
He was addressing the gathering after inaugurating various developmental projects worth Rs 1200 crores at the Taluk Police Parede Grounds, Bhatkal here on Wednesday December 6.
Party activists should shoulder the responsibility of reaching out to the people and making them aware of how the BJP is trying to create communal disturbance in the state.
We wanted to make Karnataka a hunger-free state, for which we have undertaken many programmes like the Anna Bhagya etc. From the last 4 years the government has issued 1.80 crore BPL cards to the poor people. 1.2 crore students have benefitted from the Kisheera Bhagya scheme. Our government has introduced many pro-people programmes for the benefit of the state but BJP is accusing our government of being corrupted.
Narendra Modi had promised of creating 2 crore new jobs every year-but has failed to provide sufficient jobs until now. Professionals in the IT sector are losing jobs because of the poor policies. He has also failed to bring back the black money from foreign shores; the demonetisation move has also flopped.
Our government has fulfilled 90% of the promises it made during the elections four years ago. Dozens of welfare programmes like the Anna Bhagya, Ksheera Bhagya and others have won the people hearts. However, the Modi government has not fulfilled even 25% of the promises it made before the elections in the last three years. This is enough to state that the Karnataka government is far better than the Modi government
Under the leadership of R V Deshpande Karnataka is in the top place in attracting investments to the country. The state has become a very attractive destination for investors following the launch of the new industrial policy and other measures taken by the government, he added.
PWD Minister Dr H.C. Mahadevappa, Minister for Higher Education and Tourism R. V. Deshpande also spoke on the occasion. Bhatkal MLA Mankal Vaidya presided over the function. Deputy Commissioner S Nakul and Assistant commissioner Manjunath also present.
