25 families in Gundlupet village boycotted for voting BJP, says BSY

BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa, on Monday, predicted that the Congress term in the state would end in the next eight to nine months and  that Siddramaiah was spending his last few days as Chief Minister.

Addressing leaders of various communities at a meeting held at Ramasamudra village in the taluk here, he said that 25 families in Gundlupet have been socially boycotted just because they voted for the BJP in the recent bypolls. “A woman, who was injured during the by-election has been admitted to a hospital but the police have not taken any action in this regard despite a complaint being lodged. Such incidents are taken lightly by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. The CM’s dictatorial attitude and arbitrariness will not last long,” he said.

“Congress treats Dalits as their vote bank and has no real concern for them. I don’t have the desire to become the chief minister again. It is enough for me if the BJP comes to power in the state. The BJP government will implement various pro-people programmes,” Yeddyurappa said.

He described the arrogance of the Congress government in the state since four years as ‘goondaism’. “Law and order has totally collapsed. People fear to venture out in the cities during the night. Cases of murders and extortion are reported almost everyday. The situation has turned so worse that Siddaramaiah himself has been telling in press meets that ‘goonda culture’ is on the rise in Bengaluru,” he pointed out.

Commenting on the ban on liquor shops on highways, Yeddyurappa said that, “Siddaramaiah, who has been denotifying national highways, has to clarify his stand on the issue. His move in connection with the issue is not acceptable,” he said.

Loan waiver
Yeddyurappa reiterated that he would waive farm loans within 24 hours of coming to power. In an interaction with the farmers at Arakalwadi village, he said, the BJP is staging a Satyagraha from July 7 in Bengaluru and a mega protest on July 10. Lakhs of farmers will be participating, he said.
