BSY slams govt on job guarantee scheme


 Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa has again trained guns on his party government, this time on implementation of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme in the State.

“The Union government is eager to provide Rs 5,000 crore for the job guarantee scheme. But the programme has not been implemented effectively in the State,” Yeddyurappa told mediapersons here on Sunday.

Deputy Chief Minister K S Eshwarappa was also present at the press meet.
Yeddyurappa, often targetting the BJP dispensation these days, said the State government should make proper use of the funds available for the scheme.
He suggested the government to make suitable changes to ensure better utilisation of money.

However, the former chief minister was critical of the Union government for not releasing funds to take up drought relief works in the State.
He said despite the Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar admitting to the severity of drought in the State, the Union government had been sending teams after teams to assess the drought. “How many more times would you send teams to study drought?” he fumed at the Union government.

No idea

Yeddyurappa said he had no knowledge of D V Sadananda Gowda writing against him to the party central leadership. “If not the central leadership, who should he write to?,” he said.

Replying to a question on the bickering in BJP, Yeddyurappa said: “We too are human
beings. Turmoils are quite common in political organisations.”
