HDK lambasts Centre

Bangalore:Feb 10, 2013 DHNS

 JD(S) State president H D Kumaraswamy on Saturday lambasted the Centre for allegedly meting out injustice to the State on the Cauvery river water sharing issue.

Speaking to reporters after launching the party’s website, he accused the Centre of utilising the contentious issue for political gains.

“The Union government has been unstable due to turbulence in the UPA. Hence, the Congress, which is heading the UPA, is trying to be in the good books of AIADMK supremo Jayalalitha by favouring Tamil Nadu on the Cauvery issue,” he alleged.

Those ruling at the Centre should understand that Karnataka is part of the federal set up and the Centre’s stand on the issue is against the spirit of the federal system. People of Karnataka will revolt against it if it fails to be impartial in its treatment on the Cauvery issue, he warned.

On a slew of infrastructure projects announced by Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar in his 2013-14 budget, Kumaraswamy claimed that majority of the projects were planned during his tenure as the chief minister between 2006 and 2007.
