Cong government is in sleeping mode: MP

The Congress-led State government is in sleeping mode. They (Congressmen) are more concerned about leadership than development, said Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel.

Speaking to media persons at the BJP office in the City on Sunday, he said that Congress was suffering from internal clashes. To hide these clashes, senior leaders have joined hands at Davanagere conference and tried to show that they are still maintaining unity, he added.

The State government has failed to utilise 42 per cent of funds released by Union government. Tamil Nadu stands first in the utilisation of the funds, while State stands at 16th position. There is no creativity within the system. The home ministry has completely failed to check illegalities and crimes like illegal cattle transportation, rape, robbery etc., he said.


The MP has alleged that few ministers were with sand mafia while a few Congress leaders were with land mafia.

Speaking on the Kasturirangan recommendations, he said though Central government had asked for the survey report within six months, the chief minister had sought another three months time. If the recommendations are implemented, then State might have to bear the entire responsibility, he said.

Nalin Kumar said that though Siddaramaiah was the chief minister, the real power was with home minister. The CM spoke about Karnataka rid of BJP, but after the Gram Panchayat elections, Siddaramaiah may himself not be part of the government.

Siddaramaiah may have to step down and either Parameshwar or Mallikarjun Kharge will take oath as chief minister, he added.

Gram Panchayat election will give political status to the party workers. There is healthy competition among workers. People are frustrated with the bad governance of the State government and are waiting to teach a lesson, he said. Former MLA M P Kumaraswamy and others were present.
