Cong has no moral right to contest polls: Ananth Kumar

The BJP on Sunday said the Congress has no moral rights to fight the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) polls as the party had tried to abolish the civic body.

Speaking after launching the BJP manifesto for the BBMP polls in Bengaluru on Sunday, Union Chemical and Ferlilizers Minister Ananth Kumar said, “The Congress tried its best to stall the polls. It even tried to abolish the BBMP itself. On what grounds is the party fighting the August 22 polls?”

Delay in response
Replying to a query, Ananth Kumar reiterated that it was the State government which had delayed its response, which inturn had resulted in Bengaluru being not included under the Centre’s smart city project. “The Union Government had framed the guidelines four months back and the State government had sufficient time to respond,” he said.

The party’s manifesto devotes one entire page blaming the Congress for not taking up development programmes in Bengaluru for the last two years.

“Chief Minister Siddaramaiah suffered from temporary memory loss as far as Bengaluru and its citizens are concerned.

“However, he recovered strangely two months ago from selective amnesia and is doing the City rounds. The contribution of the Congress party to Bengalureans is confined to blame game,” the manifesto states.
