Congress to complain against BJP on May 7

Corrupt activities of BJP will be brought to guvs notice: KPCC chief

Addressing the membership drive of Youth Congress on Saturday, Paramesh said that the party workers will hold a ‘padayathra’ from party office to Rajbhavan before handing over a letter of complaint.

He said that the district unit presidents have been told to document over 500 signatures from the district.

“BJP is saying that it will rule Karnataka for many more years to come. If we fail to stage protest against BJP, then we will have to sit without power,” he said calling upon the volunteers to be proactive. He said that BJP needs to be told that money power is not everything in election.

“We need to go to people and inform them about corrupt practices and nepotism of BJP,” he said adding that the districts which were forte of Congress are slowly going out of Congress’ control. There is a need to get these districts back. He called upon the volunteers to be ready for the election right away.

He asked the district committee to make a list of lapses in implementation of central programmes in the region.

Oust minister

Later addressing a news conference, Paramesh said that there is not only a need to stop illegal mining but there is a need to oust the Minister having stake in mining, from the cabinet.

“This demand will be kept by the opposition during the session. The CM had swiftly dusted the Lokayukta Report on mining. The BJP Government had furnished false details after Supreme Court Empowerment Committee submitted a report on illegal mining,” he said adding that the CEC Report asking the Government to stop mining and export of ore is a slap on the government.

He said that the CM has been concealing the main issue of mining by saying that it was Congress government which has given permission for mining. He is even threatening of releasing the list of Congress leaders who have role in illegal mining.

“We, the Congres leaders have welcomed his statement and asked him to release the list. He has not yet done it,” Paramesh said.  He opined that development works have been limping in the State.

“The fund of Rs 4,860 crore was released by the Centre out of which only Rs 1,600 crore has been utilised in the State. A misappropriation of Rs 5,500 crore has taken place in BMP,” he said.
