Yeddyurappa demands white paper on Hyderabad-Karnataka region

BJP state president BS Yeddyurappa said that the Congress government should come out with a white paper on development work in Hyderabad-Karnataka region.

"Only then, Congress leaders should set foot in the region," he said during a convention organised as part of the party's Parivartana Yatre at NV Grounds on Saturday.

"The Congress has neglected the region and is responsible for its backwardness."

Yeddyurappa said the BJP believed in 'Sab ka Saath Sab ka vikas' (collective efforts, inclusive growth) and didn't differentiate people based on  caste, creed or religion. "Congress always sowed seeds of casteism and divide the people in order to come to power," he said.

The former chief minister said 30% of minorities benefited from the Bhagyalakshmi scheme which was launched during his regime.  Yeddyurappa said an annual grant of Rs 500 crore would be allocated to Kalaburagi city and the district in order to make them a "model" for the entire state.

To benefit farmers of the region, he said and incentive of Rs 1,500 per quintal of tur would be given within 24 hours of coming to power.  

Yeddyurappa said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for "Congress Mukth Bharat" actually means "Congress Mukth Karnataka" as Karnataka is the "only big state" where Congress is running a government.

Yeddyurappa said he had visited 81 Assembly constituencies in the state. "I address three meetings every day - morning, afternoon and evening. Everywhere we are given a grand welcome, but the crowd in Kalaburagi is huge."  The NV Grounds was jam-packed with party supporters.

Union Minister H N Ananth Kumar, MLAs Arvind Limbavali, Dattatreya Patil Revoor and others were present on the occasion.
