Prasad lambasts Siddaramaiah

Former minister VSrinivas Prasad lambasted Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and said that he is an expert at indulging in conspiracies.

Prasad was addressing a gathering as part of 'Parivarthana Yatre' in the city on Sunday. He said that Siddaramaiah, who learnt about Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president GParameshwara being in the race for the CM's post in 2013, ensured that Parameshwara gets defeated. "Siddaramaiah will never tolerate others prospering," Prasad charged.

"Siddaramaiah is a fake socialist and he is not a secularist. He wants to lead a lavish life. Siddaramaiah claims that he served as finance minister for 12 years but the state has Rs 1.30 lakh crore debt. What is his achievement," he questioned.

'Rice smuggled to TN'

MPShobha Karandlaje alleged that Congress party leaders have been smuggling rice made for 'Anna Bhagya' to Tamil Nadu for 'Amma Idly'. She said that the Union government has been supplying rice and wheat to the state at a low price but Congress party leaders in the region have been supplying the rice to Tamil Nadu to prepare 'Amma Idly'.

"During BJP's rule in the state, the then government had introduced Bhagya Lakshmi Bond scheme for 3.90 lakh people, but the Congress government has issued bonds only for 1.5 lakh people. The government has planned to discontinue the schemes such as Ganga Kalyana and Suvarna Grama Yojane and others which were introduced by BSYeddyurappa," she alleged.

The government also failed to reach different schemes to the beneficiaries, he said.
