Shettar takes a dig at CM, says govt may soon introduce 'Vastra Bhagya'

BJP leader and former chief minister Jagadish Shettar has alleged that with a view to capture the votebank in the forthcoming general elections, Congress party leaders have been illegally distributing sarees, watches and mixer grinders among the people. The state government may soon regularise it in the name of 'Vastra Bhagya', he commented.

Speaking to reporters here on Sunday, Shettar said that Congress leaders are suddenly concerned about the poor and common people as the elections are fast approaching. "Chief Minister Siddaramaiah would soon announce 'Vastra Bhagya', as one of the government schemes to distribute sarees, shirts, in the budget," Shettar ridiculed.

"If we speak against Indira Canteen, they (Congress) describe us as anti-poor. Why did Siddaramaiah not launch the canteen immediately after he came to power," he questioned. No one, including, AICC president Rahul Gandhi, can stop the BJP wave in Karnataka. Siddaramaiah fears PM Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, Shettar said. When questioned about Siddaramaiah's "terrorist" comments against BJP and RSS, he challenged the CM to release the documents to prove it.
