Mangaluru, May 23: Former Union Minister and senior congress leader, B Janardhan Poojary, condemned the administrative methodology of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and said none can beat the BJP in terms of publicity. He said, the congress leaders must undertake the task of conveying the achievements done by congress government to the public.
Addressing a press meet at the district Congress office here, Poojary said, the government has become passive in Jammu and Kashmir. Does the Sangh Parivar accept the government formed along with BJP PDP? Modiji, What about the past assurances of bringing the black money back? Which of the assurances have you fulfilled? questioned Janardhan Poojary.
Coming down heavily on former CM and BJP national vice-president Yeddyurappa, Poojary said, BJP and its leaders like Yeddyurappa are questioning the achievements of the Congress government in its two years of power in the state.
No chief minister in the history of Karnataka has taken the initiative to provide free rice to the poor. But the present chief minister Siddaramaiah has done this. Over 100 out of the 165 assurances which were given during the elections are implemented in two years of governance, said Poojary.
He further continued, during BJP’s administration in the state, 16 cabinet ministers were facing charges in various scams and scandals. The then state minister Janardhana Reddy misused his office for illegal mining.
He also said that Siddaramaiah will continue as the Chief Minster for 15 years. Karnataka state will come out as the developed state in the entire country. The workers of Congress party prepare for the elections by campaigning on pro-developmental works, he said.
Congress leaders, Former mayor Mahabal Maarla, Suresh Ballal, Balraj Rai, Vijaykumar Shetty, Vishwas Kumar Das, Arun Kuvello, Harikrishna Bantwal, Nazir Bajal, and others were present in the press meet.
