BJP will pay for its communal agenda: Siddaramaiah

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said communal agenda would not fetch any benefit for the BJP, which has reached the heights of offence.

Addressing the gathering at the foundation stone-laying and inaugural of projects worth Rs 490.9729 crore in Bydoor constituency on Monday, the chief minister said the Opposition party deserves no status to adorn the power of the state. "The BJP is filled with publicity mongers and the party leaders are reluctant to serve the people. They only play with the sentiments of people creating hatred among different religions. People are now aware of the realities and the BJP would surely pay for its communal agenda," he said.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured several promises but none has been fulfilled. He only ensured that the rich like Adani, Ambani, Ramdev are benefited and not the farmers, women and poor. Modi had also promised to create two crore jobs, which also turned out to be fake. The Central government has failed to waive farmers' loan in nationalised banks. The state BJP leaders, who accompanied the all-party delegation to discuss the loan issue, failed to raise the demand before the Prime Minister. Loans borrowed by 22,27,506 farmers were waived to the tune of Rs 8165 crore in cooperative societies," he stated.

Siddaramaiah said Yeddyurappa should be aware that false promises would not serve the cause of the society. He also ridiculed the Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath. The UP chief minister is unaware of the development that is happening in Karnataka. He should look into the list of the human development index of the state. He added that UP is absolutely a Jungle Raj.

He maintained that the state government is celebrating all Jayantis including that of Tipu. "There is no need to create hue and cry over the celebrations. People who argue against the celebrations are ignorant of the history of the country," he said.

"The state government would assure zero per cent loan to fisherwomen's associations. The forthcoming budget would be the last one for the term. The budget would comprise majorly announcements which would pave the way for the new wave in the state," he said.

The chief minister added that he has already toured 24 districts and has received a rousing welcome with all signs towards victory.

He said, along with BJP, JD(S) has also no bright future in state politics.
