BJP to go aggressive against govt

The state BJP on Thursday decided to shift gears and go aggressive against the coalition government ahead of the winter session of the state legislature commencing in Belagavi from December 10.

The BJP Legislature Party meeting chaired by party state president B S Yeddyurappa in Bengaluru decided to take on the government for the “injustice” being meted out to farmers. Yeddyurappa told reporters after the meeting that a mega farmers’ rally will be held outside the Suvarna Soudha, the venue of the legislature session, on December 10.

The party will also highlight the government’s “failure” to carry out relief work in the drought and flood-hit regions. He said six teams, comprising party leaders, will fan out to various parts of the state from December 3 to review the damage due to drought and flood.

BJP state general secretary Aravind Limbavali said the party will also highlight the issue of farmers committing suicide, unsuccessful farm loan waiver, drought situation in the state, and various demands of the farmers, during the session.

The party also introspected its poor performance in the recent bypolls at Shivamogga, Mandya, Ramanagara, Ballari and Jamkhandi.
