Ex-minister comes down heavily on govt

Addressing reporters here on Monday, she said, “Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa is making public development schemes through advertisements. Voters are being lured offering money and government machinery were being misused by the BJP, but this will not deter the spirit of the Congress candidates in villages.”  The State government is implementing schemes using the Centre’s sanctions. People in the State are deprived of infrastructure, roads, drinking water and many other facilities since the BJP government did not fulfil promises made in the budget. Scheme benefits are not being distributed to the poor as the government is involved in corruptions and scams, she added.

The government could not find solution to the power crisis, she said and questioned, “how can the government provide free power supply for 10 HP pumpsets of farmers when the State is reeling under shortage of power.”

The BJP government promised the poor of distributing rice at Rs two per kilogram, but they did not keep their words, Taradevi said and charged that the BJP government has given the people only empty promises.

Rural development work were stalled due to the instability in the government. The BJP is planning to win majority in the elections using money power and the government machinery, she alleged. “The BJP government is capable of denotifying land within 24 hours. But the same government is not distributing sites for the poor,” she said and alleged that the government only provide statistics through advertisements, but no action is being taken to implement schemes.
