The Opposition Congress in the Legislative Council on Tuesday refuted certain claims about the government in the Governor’s address to members of both Houses in the State legislature on Monday.

D.S. Veeraiah detailed achievements of the government, while moving the resolution to thank the Governor for his address and Ganesh Karnik seconded it. However, the Congress objected to the claims made by Mr. Veeraiah and Mr. Karnik and dubbed them a bundle of lies.

When Mr. Veeraiah claimed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government had achieved in five years what other governments had been unable to do, Janata Dal (Secular) floor leader M.C. Nanaiah said he will compliment the BJP government, as no other government can match their kind of “achievement”.
