'Name the districts where toilets have gone missing'

MLA C T Ravi has urged the State government to release a list of districts and taluks where 19 lakh toilets constructed during the previous BJP government has gone missing as per the statement of Minister for Panchayat Raj and Rural Development, within 10 days. The government should file a criminal case against the erring officials. 

Speaking to mediperson here on Saturday, he said “if the toilets were constructed only on paper, then it is an offence. Why minister failed to act against erring officials?” he asked.  “If the minister had tried to gain cheap publicity by issuing such statements, then he should seek apology from the people of the state,” he said. 

Ravi said “it was the BJP government which had framed an ordinance to legalise the illegal structures and the ordinance was sent to the Governor for his nod. However, he had not given approval for the ordinance . 

As an opposition leader Siddaramaiah had opposed the ordinance.The Governor has given his nod for the same ordinance without any amendment now. The Governor should clarify reason for change in his mind.” 

He said “no development works have been initiated even after five months of the government coming to power. The ‘development’  initiated by the government was transfer of officials. 83 police personnel have been transferred so far.” 

“The gambling cases are on rise. The government has failed to contain it. A false case has been filed against a person who had nabbed illegal cattle lifters in Aldoor. The false case against the innocent should be withdrawn,” Ravi said. 

A convention will be held ahead of Lok Sabha polls in the state. The BJP will hold a campaign to create an awareness on the failure of the UPA government in the centre.

 “There is consensus among the BJP leaders in the state to admit former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa back to the party fold. The decision on the same will be taken by the BJP Central Parliamentary Committee,” he added.
