The valedictory session of the first phase of BJP’s ‘Raitha Chaitanya Yatre’ here on Sunday was not just restricted to farmers’ issue. The leaders of the saffron party targeted Chief Minister Siddaramaiah at his home turf Mysuru.

BJP national general secretary and Karnataka In-charge Muralidhar Rao lambasted Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in the State. Drawing an anology between Congress and BJP-ruled States in the country, Rao said, “It is only in Congress-ruled States, the farmers are ending their lives.”

Opposition leader in the Legislative Council K S Eshwarappa alleged that the sons of Siddaramaiah and his trusted aide-PWD Minister Dr H C Mahadevappa are involved in illegal sand mining in the district.

Eshwarappa said, “The officials told about the involvement of high profile politicians in the illegal activity when I sought an explanation in this regard from the officials in Mysuru during a recent visit.”

Referring to the recent mayoral polls to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) where Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) alliance won the election, Eshwarappa said, “It is a tacit understanding between Siddaramaiah and JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda. If Siddaramaiah finds it difficulty to continue in power, Gowda and his son H D Kumaraswamy will come to the rescue.”

BJP State unit president Pralhad Joshi said, “The recent Congress-JD(S) alliance is a message to Congress high command to practice restraint.”

Former minister Govind Karjol said, “The illegal sand mining scam is bigger than the Ballari mines scam.”

‘Aathmahathye Bhagya’ and ‘Savina Bhagya’ (Suicide and death) are the actual programmes of Siddaramaiah-led government with farmers’ ending their lives in the State. he criticised.

Former deputy chief minister R Ashok said the wheat given under Anna Bhagya scheme is unfit even for poultry feed.

The leaders also criticised to the hilt the government’s failure to ensure adequate power supply, utilise funds meant for dalits among other issues.
