BJP Critisized Anna Bhagya as Kanna Bhagya But now says Namma Bhagya – U T Khader

Mangaluru: “Whatever scheme the State government has implemented the opposition is taking the credit and creating confusion among the people. When the Congress government led by CM Siddaramaiah came to power, the Right to food act was not in force. But Siddaramaiah implemented the Anna Bhagya scheme to make Karnataka a hunger-free state. When we implemented Anna Bhagya the opposition criticized us saying that the government is making the people lazy by providing free rice and called it Kanna Bhagya. Now the Anna Bhagya scheme is successful in Karnataka and the opposition is claiming Anna Bhagya as Namma Bhagya”, said the Minister for Food and Civil Supplies U T Khader in a press meet held at the Circuit House here on January 9.

Addressing the mediapersons U T Khader said, “The UPA government implemented the Right to food act and under this act, food grains are provided at a subsidized rate, those who come to power should continue this scheme for the benefit of the poor. In Karnataka, we are giving the BPL families 7 kg rice per person free of cost. If Anna Bhagya is BJP’s Bhagya why then in other states like Maharastra, Gujarat and Chattisghad, where the BJP is ruling this scheme has not been implemented. Karnataka is the only state to start the Anna Bhagya scheme and the BPL families have benefited from this scheme. According to the Right to Food Act, only 5 kgs of rice should be distributed at a subsidized rate but in Karnataka, the government is distributing 7 kgs rice free of cost. Let the BJP implement such schemes in states where they are in power instead of claiming Anna Bhagya as Namma Bhagya in Karnataka.”

Minister Khader further said, “Many labourers come here from other states, sometimes they find difficulty in getting food, let the NDA government provide them Anna Bhagya. When they too are the citizens of this country why is the NDA government not providing those migrant labourers with the Anna Bhagya?” Khader questioned.
