 The State government led by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has completed three years without any scams, said Congress district unit President T P Ramesh.

Addressing mediapersons in Madikeri on Saturday, he said that 137 taluks in the state are affected by severe droughts and the chief minister has been carrying out visits to all districts to respond to people’s problems.

“No minister has been jailed, unlike the ministers of the BJP-led state government. Let the BJP leaders introspect before pointing fingers at Congress leaders. None of the union ministers from the state has been speaking about the drought situation,” said Ramesh.
Successful projects

“Various programmes of the state government, such as Ksheera Bhagya, Anna Bhagya, Krishi Bhagya, Manaswini and Maitri, have been running successfully. The CM has released funds of Rs 1.5 crore in three packages for the development of roads in the district. For 2016-17, grants of Rs 50 lakh will be utilised for the development of rural roads, as per the directions of district in-charge minister,” he listed out.

Ramesh added that the work on the private bus stand in town will start soon. “A special package is being prepared by the City Municipal Council for the rejuvenation of lakes in town. Road construction works and drainage system will be taken up under Nagarotthana project, in City Municipal Council and Town Panchayats,” the president assured.

Works on the Kannada Samucchaya Bhavan, the General Thimmaiah Memorial Bhavan, the new building of the Zilla Panchayat and the drinking water projects have been initiated across the district, he said.
