The Janata Dal (Secular) Dakshina Kannada unit president, M.B. Sadashiva, said here on Sunday that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government in the State has hijacked the pro-people schemes implemented by the erstwhile Janata Dal-led Government.
Addressing party workers at the party's district office, he said the Bhagyalakshmi scheme of the State Government was not new.
He said the BJP had re-named a scheme implemented by the erstwhile Janata Dal led government as Bhagyalakshmi.
He said the Janata Dal was known for implementing pro-people schemes.
It began with the former Chief Minister late Ramakrishna Hegde . The Janata Dal (Secular) continued with the pro-people schemes .
Mr. Sadashiva said the BJP-led Government in the State had not released the promised fund for the Haj pilgrims. Instead, it had released funds for various Maths.
He said instead of sanctioning funds for maths, the Government should sanction funds for pro-people schemes.
