CM warns BJP to avoid anti-Constitution remarks

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that the BJP's ideologies are always against the Constitution.

"The party does not know the meaning of equality and social justice. The whole country will rise in rebellion if it even speaks about changing the Constitution," he warned.

Speaking at the last leg of 'Sadhana Samavesha' at Kanakadasa Stadium here Siddaramaiah said, "The Indian Constitution is considered to be the best and the people will not tolerate if the BJP even speaks about making any changes in it.

Indicating at Ananth Kumar Hegde, he said that the Union Minister, who took oath in the name of the Constitution has issued anti-Constitutional statements. The use of the term 'Hindutva', the BJP is trying to create a rift between the castes, he alleged.

Farm loans

Speaking about farm loans, the CM said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, did not consider repeated pleas of the state for waiver of farm loans availed by farmers from nationalised banks. "Former CM B S Yeddyurappa, who is taking out 'Parivarthana Yatra', is lying about the total waiver of farm loans within 24 hours of coming to power. The same Yeddyurappa had spoken arrogantly about farm loan waiver when he was the CM. The BJP is known for its double standards," he said.

End of bhagyas

Pointing out the recent statements of H D Deve Gowda, that all the 'bhagyas' (schemes) of the government will be scrapped if the JD(S) comes to power, Siddaramaiah said that people should vote for Congress in the next elections so that the development works continue.

I-T raids

Earlier, speaking to reporters at the helipad, Siddaramaiah alleged that the Centre is misusing the Income Tax department and has been conducting raids on the houses of the Congress leaders.

Commenting on the Cauvery River water-sharing issue, he said, "The Supreme Court has heard the appeals related to the issue and there is hope that the judgement would be favourable for the state."
