BSY exudes confidence of BJP ruling 22 states including K'taka

BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa trained his guns on Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and the Congress government and, rained assurances of development if BJP comes to power, on the first day of Parivarthana rally in Mandya district on Friday.

Speaking after inaugurating the rally in Maddur, he said that if BJP comes to power, it will earmark Rs 1,500 crore for the irrigation projects for Mandya district alone.

BJP has been ruling 19 states in the country and in the next six months, it will be ruling 22 states, including Karnataka. If BJP comes to power in Karnataka, Rs 1 lakh crore would be earmarked for irrigation. Pipes would be laid to release water from Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) reservoir to Markonahalli dam, he said.

Targeting the CM, Yeddyurappa said that the law and order situation has worsened in the state. Siddaramaiah has been looting the state's treasury. Domestic violence on Dalit women and murders are on the rise. Even the High Court has criticised the state government. Despite all these, the state government has not learnt any lesson, he criticised.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been giving a transparent and clean governance and gained respect from the world community. Only if BJP comes to power in the state, Modi's hands can be strengthened, he said.


Addressing the gathering at the Silver Jubilee Park in Mandya, Yeddyurappa said that the state government has been playing with the lives of the farmers. "When BJP was in power, it had announced a special budget for the farmers. Free power, financial assistance to the milk producers, interest-free loans were implemented. The BJP government had even waived farmers loans twice. But the Siddaramaiah-led government had cancelled all the schemes and betrayed the farmers," he said.

Yeddyurappa also pointed out the various schemes implemented during his tenure including Bhagayalakshmi scheme, development programmes for the Hindus, Muslims, and Christians, were withdrawn by the Congress government. Various schemes pertaining to the development that were withdrawn would be introduced again if BJP comes to power, he assured.

BJP leaders C T Ravi, C P Yogeshwar, MLC D S Veeraiah, leaders Abdul Azeem, K Shivaram, Tejaswini Gowda, and others were present.

Yeddyurappa and S M Krishna were the main attractions during the rally. Yeddyurappa said that he was very happy as S M Krishna accepted to be the part of the programme.
