Bharatiya Janata Party State president Pralhad Joshi has said the welfare works taken up the BJP will help the party return to power in the State.

Addressing presspersons here on Friday, he said: “Even though our party had faced allegations and internal conflicts during the five-year regime, we succeeded in giving several pro-people schemes, which would help us form the government again in the State.”

Mr. Joshi claimed that his party had got enough support in all the districts where he had campaigned.

Criticising Congress leader Siddaramaiah for his comments on the bomb blast outside the BJP office in Bangalore recently, Mr. Joshi demanded a public apology from him. Mr. Siddaramaiah had earlier said that the BJP was involved in the bomb blast to gain votes in the elections.

Replying to the allegation made by Karnataka Janata Paksha leader and businessman Vijay Sankeshwar that the former Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda had sought money from him by writing on a chit, Mr. Joshi said his party was ready to face any kind of investigation to find out the truth. “The allegations made by Mr. Sankeshwar are baseless,” he said.

On the allegations made by Rahul Gandhi that the BJP government had set world record in corruption, Mr. Joshi said that Mr. Gandhi had forgotten the enormity of corruption in the UPA government. District unit president Chandrashekhar Kavatagi and MLAs S.K. Bellubbi and Appu Pattanshetty were present.
