All the allegations will be answered in their own tone in the Session,” said Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa.

He was in Kodagu district to take part in election campaign for S G Medappa. He said “nobody can shake the government as long as we have the blessings of the voters.
Those who are levelling allegations against the government, should make so by showing the records. Government is ready for discussion with statistics.”

He said “fear of being in Opposition for the next 10 to 15 years, they are levelling allegations against us. Congress-JD(S) are plotting to bring down BJP government. After Assembly elections, we have won in all the elections. Looking at our administration, people have blessed us. In the forthcoming MLC elections, we will fetch 13 to 15 votes,” he predicted.

Having unable to face the election independently, Congress-JD(S) have entered into alliace openly. BJP government has been emphasising local bodies.

Commenting on KPCC President R V Deshpande’s statement that “BSY is the weakest CM state ever saw, Yeddyurappa said “I feel pity on Deshpande.”

To a query on the allegation that with the  formation of the co-ordination committee, CM has become puppet of mine owners and RSS, he said

 “I am part of RSS. Just like the way children seek the guidance of their parents, I seek RSS guidance once in a while. Now, where is the question of RSS controlling me,” he asked.

No licence

After BJP came to power in the State, no licence has been issued for mining. During the reign of Dharam Singh, 44 license, H D Kumaraswamy 47 and during President’s rule 22 licences have been issued. After I became the CM, first time, I announced mining policy in the State. “In fact, we had taken a decision to provide license to steel industry.”

“We did not give permission for Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project. However, based on court order, to complete the corridor, we have given 236 acre land,” he informed.


He said: “Opposition have been making hue and cry over power crisis in the State. However, the Centre instead of 1,500 MW power is supplying only 700 to 800 MW and following indifference attitude towards the State. After we came to power, we have taken steps to produce additional 1,000 MW power. BJP government has the target to produce 5,000 MW. In this regard, in association with NTPC, the work on production of 4,000 MW electricity will commence at Koodligi on January 14.”

Yeddyurappa said: “We had sought Rs 6,000 crore assistance from Centre to undertake flood relief works.

However, Centre announced only Rs 1,000 crore. Of which, Rs 500 crore has been released so far. With the help of donors we could raise Rs 1,600 crore.”

Transport Minister R Ashok, former MP C H Vijayashankar, MLA M P Appacchuranjan, MLC Capt Ganesh Karnik, D Veeraiah, District BJP President M P Sunil Subramani and others were present.
