Do we need a govt that can't even fill potholes, questions Javadekar

The state BJP  on Sunday  launched 'Nava Karnataka Janapara Shakti'   campaign to get feedback from people on what should go into the party manifesto for the Assembly polls.

The first such campaign was held at BMS Engineering College auditorium in the city in the presence of Union Human Resources Minister Prakash Javadekar, who was recently appointed the election incharge for Karnataka.  

The manifesto committee headed by former minister Suresh Kumar is keen on knowing the aspirations of the people from various walks of life. There will be extensive consultation in each and every district before finalising the manifesto.

District-level committees have been constituted to crowd-source people's views. A total of 40 meetings will be held across the state in the coming weeks. Speaking on the occasion, Javadekar blamed the state government's laxity for the civic woes in Bengaluru. "Do we need a government which cannot even fill potholes?" he said. Javadekar said when he was Minister for Environment and Forests, the Centre had released Rs 800 crore for conservation and maintenance of lakes in Bengaluru, but the government had failed to utilise the money.

"People are viewing development seriously and will teach the government a fitting lesson in the coming elections," he said. He said the Modi government believed in four Ps, Public, Private, People, Participation, while preparing any public document.  

Earlier in the day, Javadekar held an interaction with members of the manifesto committee at the party headquarters in Bengaluru.
