Reimburse money spent on CM's rallies: Shobha tells Congress

Bengaluru, dhns: BJP leader Shobha Karandlaje on Saturday said that the Congress party should reimburse to the government the expenses incurred by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to organise the rallies and programmes undertaken as part of Navakarnataka Nirmana Yatra.

Shobha said the chief minister's yatra was more of a political event than a tour to highlight the government's initiatives. She said Siddaramaiah was not only misusing the taxpayers' money, but also the government machinery for the rallies, where he attack his political opponents.

Shobha demanded that Siddaramaiah put a stop to his whirlwind tours immediately in the light of a PIL filed before the High Court against it.

She said the tours were a clear violation of the Supreme Court order of 2013, which said public funds should not be used for political or electoral gains.
