'BJP for bail, jail, purchase'

The minister was addressing an election meeting to seek votes for Congress candidate for the Koppal bypoll, K Basavaraj Hitnal, at Mittikeri in the city.

“Janardhana Reddy has been jailed for illegal mining, Yeddyurappa is seeking bail in cases against him, while other BJP leaders are buying voters,” said the Union minister.

The BJP leaders are claiming that they have implemented development work that could not be taken up by the Congress in its 60-year rule.  But the Upper Krishna project, besides the irrigation projects at Singatalur and Hirehalla were Congress’ contributions, he said.
While the Congress governments had implemented several permanent projects, the BJP government is finding it difficult even to disburse old age pension, the minister said.
KPCC President G Parameshwara, Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly, Siddaramaiah and C M Ibrahim, Hitnal were present.
