Guv speech bundle of lies, directionless: Oppn

The Opposition parties on Wednesday termed Governor H R Bhardwaj’s address to the joint session “directionless” and “a bundle of lies”.

BJP leader Jagadish Shettar said the speech does not spell out how problems being faced by people, including drought situation, will be solved. Farmers across the State are in distress and people are facing drinking water problem in many drought-hit places. But the government has failed to provide them succour, he alleged. Though the law and order situation has worsened in the State, the Governor’s speech claimed that there is peace and harmony. No step is taken to punish those involved in triggering communal violence in Gulbarga and Yadgir districts, he charged. Former chief minister and JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy criticised the speech as “directionless”. Though it is only a customary address, the government has to reveal its priorities in administration. But there is no clarity in the speech. 

He poohpoohed Siddaramaiah saying that the chief minister was dozing off when the Governor was addressing the joint session. “This shows how serious is our chief minister as far as the administration is concerned,” he said. B Sriramulu of BSR Congress alleged that the speech is only “a bundle of lies.” It is surprising that the Governor, who had been criticising the style of the Congress government’s functioning, has praised the government. The Governor should have spoken the truth in the interest of the State, he added.
