'CM's Ahinda statement not correct'

“Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s statement about his leaning towards Ahinda communities sends a wrong message, and he may face the ire of other communities.

A chief minister is for the entire State and for all communities, while he can give preference to the weaker sections, but he cannot speak about only one community,” opined Leader of Opposition in Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar.

“Siddaramaiah has stated that 23 per cent of people in the State are poor, but Congress itself is responsible for their poverty, as it ruled the State for 50 years. No poor person with self-esteem demanded free rice, but this government is giving free rice to do politics by keeping the poverty intact,” Shettar alleged.

He told mediapersons here on Saturday that the situation in the State is like that of the President’s rule, and only status quo is being maintained, as no development is taking place.

‘CM lazy’

“Siddaramaiah skipped China visit due to his irresponsibility and laziness, though Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited him. Siddaramaiah might have skipped the China tour, because he would not have got enough time to sleep there. In last two years, no major industry came to the State, and some investment could have been attracted towards the State, if the chief minister visited China,” Shettar opined.

The Congress government in the State has failed in all fields, and there is no meaning in holding a convention to celebrate the completion of its two years.
The anti-incumbency wave has already begun in the State and people would teach a lesson to the Congress, he added.
