DAVANGERE: The conflict within the Bharatiya Janata Party Government in the State and its effects on administration was criticised by K.C. Kondaiah, MLC and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee observer.

Addressing Congress workers during the enrolment drive at Anegod village on Saturday, Mr. Kondaiah said that there was no unity within the BJP; all the party leaders were after power.

Flood relief

The Government and its leaders who should have been totally involved in alleviating the problems of the flood-affected people, were busy in horse-trading, he said. The administration had come to a standstill because of the party’s internal conflicts, he added.

He said because of the scuffle for power between the Chief Minister and the Reddy brothers, the people of the State had been put through a lot of inconvenience.

The days of the BJP Government were numbered.

He said that the Congress was a disciplined party and it was the only party that was engaged in pro-people activities, especially the Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment Guarantee Act. All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi was personally monitoring the scheme and making sure it reached the people, he said.
