Centre has failed to deliver on poll promises: Poojary

In a scathing attack on former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, former union minister Janardhan Poojary said the NDA government at the Centre has failed to fulfill its promises made during the parliamentary election.  

Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, he said Modi had promised to bring back black money stashed in foreign banks after coming to power and credit Rs 15 lakh each in the accounts of all the citizens. However, the promises have remained unfulfilled. The prices of essential commodities have increased. Real estate business, exports, sensex have seen a downward trend after the BJP government came to power. 

“If Modi continues to invite private players to invest in India, then a day will come when private players will control the government and will result in fall in the economy,” he warned. Instead, the government with the help of private players should start public enterprises, he added. 

Poojary said by amending clauses in Land Acquisition Act, the Modi government has taken anti- farmer decision. The Act will benefit those who have helped Modi to come to power. “In spite an article in Chinese media asking Modi not to visit Arunachal Pradesh, the prime minister visited China.  Despite PDP supporting the separatists in Jammu and Kashmir, the BJP has entered into an alliance to form the government. Is BJP and Modi are a patriots?” he asked. 

Flaying former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa for terming two-year achievement of the Congress government in Karnataka as zero achievement, Poojary said that Yeddyurappa has failed to raise his voice in the Parliament. It looks like his parliamentary constituency has no problem. The Congress-led government in the state is the first government in the country to supply rice to BPL card holders free of cost. Had Yeddyurappa had concern for poor, he should have started the scheme when he was in power. 

“The BJP and Yeddyurappa still crave for power in Karnataka. They will never come to power. Siddaramaiah will continue as Chief Minister for the next 10 to 15 years and will take Karnataka to the top position in terms of development,” he added.
