A bundle of lies, say Congress, JD(S)

Addressing reporters, KPCC President R V Deshpande said the State Government had promised to spend Rs 8,000 crore in 2009-10 for infrastructure development in Bangalore.
But it finally released only Rs 300 crore to the BBMP as a SFC grants. Announcement made in 2010-11 budget is, therefore, only aimed at the coming BBMP elections, he alleged.

Privilege motion

He also said the Congress party will move a privilege motion against the CM for making false promises on Bangalore development in the Legislature.

Deshpande also opposed the proposed IT SEZ near Devanahalli and alleged that the project, if taken up, will lead to real estate business. It is not feasible for setting up a SEZ there due to non-availability of water, he added.

JD(S) State President H D Kumaraswamy in a separate press conference said that all infrastructure projects for Bangalore announced in the budget are funded by the Centre and the State Government is not spending a single paise. He also claimed that he got those projects sanctioned from the Centre when he was the CM.


Both the leaders welcomed the SEC’s announcing the calender of events for the BBMP elections and said that it has come as a slap on the face of the State Government.
