State fed up of tug-of-war for CM's chair: Moily

BJP cheated people all 4 times during its term in Cmagalur-Udupi

Minister for Corporate Affairs M Veerappa Moily has said that the State is fed up of the continuing episodes of tug-of-war between the former and the present chief ministers for chair.

Addressing the Congress public meet at Koteshwara near Kundapur on Wednesday, he said that B S Yeddyurappa made an unwritten pact with D V Sadananada Gowda, providing the latter to come to power for just three months. Now, the former is pressurizing the latter to step down as per the pact.

Moily terming Gowda as an ‘ornamental captain’ of 11 member cricket team,  said that fast bowler former CM B S Yeddyurappa is vehemently trying to get Gowda bowled by hook or by crook.

He further said that Sadananda Gowda did not have even 20 per cent attendance in the Parliament and by not utilizing Rs four crore MP funds, he had sidelined development in the region.

‘No right to seek votes’

Later, addressing a news conference on Wednesday, he said due to Gowda’s disinterest in utilizing MP’s funds, the people of the region have been deprived of their rights and hence he does not have the right to seek votes.

“BJP had represented Chikmagalur-Udupi constituency four times and all the four times, the people have been cheated. On the other hand, Congress has mooted development every time it got a chance,” he said adding that through technical survey was approved for the 125 km Padubidri-Dharmasthala and 200 km Kollur-Nelyadi railway line in the railway budget, the projects failed to see day’s light due to lack of support from the State Government.

He said that Congress candidate Jayaprakash Hegde is a clean politician and this is a good reason for the people to vote for Congress.
