Amit Shah likens Congress govt to faulty power transmission centre

Benefits of union govt's schemes not reaching people, says Shah

BJP president Amit Shah, on Monday, likened the Siddaramaiah government to a flawed electricity transmission centre.

Comparing the Centre to a power generation company and the states to  transmission centres, he told a meeting of arecanut growers that the Karnataka government was a transmission centre which was not in working condition. People do not get electricity from a faulty transmission centre. Similarly, people in the state were not receiving benefits of the central government schemes.

People in the state must reject the Congress and back the BJP in the Assembly elections, the BJP president said.

Terming Siddaramaiah as a good political artiste, the BJP chief said, "Without doing any development work in Karnataka, he comes to Delhi and projects the state as number one. I want to ask him in which field is Karnataka number one. Is it in collapse of law and order, farmer suicides, violence against women, unemployment? A retired judge of the Supreme Court had stated that Karnataka was number one in corruption."

Siddaramaiah, who is dividing the society, must read and understand the content of the state anthem (Nada Geethe) composed by Kuvempu, Shah said.

The BJP president made it clear that the Centre did not consider the release of funds to Karnataka as charity, but the right of the people of the state.
