Opposition impediment to State development: CM

“Congress and JD(S) have been making allegations on me and the Government. What efforts have they done to solve the problems of the people? If they were concerned about people, they would have not resorted into political conspiracy of boycotting Assembly session,” he said addressing the party workers’ convention at Sanghaniketan in Mangalore on Sunday.

The CM told the Opposition that if they have any complaints against the Government, they can print a chargesheet and go to the people with it or even hand it over to the retired judge who is heading the Judicial Inquiry in the State on various scams.

“Our achievements over the last two and half years has been printed and been dispatched to Centre as well. We have evidence of what we have done. Opposition needs to stop making baseless allegations and talk on basis of facts and figures,” he said.

The CM opined that the opposition parties are creating confusions at the State only to conceal their own misdeeds and predicted that after the ZP, TP election results, the opposition leaders will lose their face to the extent that they will be compelled to stay indoor.

Letter to Guv

Yeddyurappa said that he had written a letter to the Governor explaining to him that none of his cabinet ministers have any connection with the scams spoken about in the State. “I have done my bit. I believe that the Governor will take it positively,” he said. Answering a query on Bangarappa’s move of joining JD(S), BSY said that Congress is a sinking ship and realising this fact, Bangarappa has opted to walk out. “It shows the internal condition of Congress,” BSY said.
