'Siddu will be last Cong CM in Karnataka' : Yeddyurappa

State BJP President B S Yeddyurappa has said going by the poor governance of the Congress government, it looks Siddaramaiah would be the last chief minister of his party in Karnataka.

Addressing mediapersons in the city, Yeddyurappa said the Congress government has turned into anti-people. There is lack of co-ordination among the ministers. The government is so helpless that it has not been able to use even the Centre’s allocated funds for developments works.

He said 1,500 farmers committed suicide in the recent years due to poverty, and the Siddarmaiah government could not even distribute compensation to the family members of the deceased farmers. People are in large numbers migrating from the drought-affected taluks. Still the government claims itself as a people-friendly government.

Yeddyurappa said the prime minister has more than an hour to listen to Siddaramaiah to understand the prevailing drought in Karnataka. The Centre also sanctioned Rs 1,240 crore to the state, but the utilisation is hardly 62%. “Look at the capacity of Karnataka. It is not in a position even to use the money sanctioned by the Centre. Still, it is criticisng and finding fault with the Centre.”

He said the Anti-Corruption Bureau has been set up to protect corrupt ministers. The greatest achievement of Siddramaiah seems to be appointing 11 parliamentary secreataries. Corruption in the RDPR department has touched its peak, he criticised.
