CM: my govt's performance  better than BJP regime's

Having completed 3 years in office, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Saturday declared that his government’s performance was far better than the previous BJP regime.

Constantly drawing a comparison between the BJP’s regime and that of his, Siddaramaiah claimed that the Congress rule so far had been ‘free’ from scams, transparent and pro-people. Rubbishing the BJP’s charges as baseless, he said no Congress minister or legislator had either “gone to jail, or come out on bail”.

Taking credit for the achievements in various sectors, including agriculture, he said his government’s biggest achievements were in the irrigation sector. Having promised to irrigate 9.25 lakh acres in five years, his government had in 3 years succeeded in irrigating almost 4.25 lakh acres. 

Making a scathing attack on BJP leaders Jagadish Shettar and Yeddyurappa for calling him  a “liar” and “Congress’s last CM in Karnataka”, Siddaramaiah said he wasn’t sure if he should laugh these comments off or take the trouble of getting upset. “It is, however, a fact that the people of Karnataka will never vote Yeddyurappa back to power,” he added.

To Yeddyurappa’s comments that Siddaramaiah has been deserted by his Cabinet colleagues, he said, “Yeddyurappa has no moral authority to be saying this. There was a point in time when even the DC of Ballari district wouldn’t go to receive him. He dropped Shobha Karandlaje from the Cabinet, fearing the Ballari leaders.” 

*Siddaramaiah released a 140-page booklet ‘Nalkane Varshadedege...Bharavase Nadige’, to mark his government’s three years in governance
*He claimed that his government had met 120 out of the 165 poll assurances.
*While Mysuru city had bagged ‘Clean City’ tag twice, his government had sanctioned Rs 4,400 crore for the development of Bengaluru. 
*BJP, however, had “looted” funds and had left BBMP starved for money.
