Says people are fed up with BJP’s misrule

President of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) G. Parameshwara has said that the Assembly elections will bring about a change in the State.

Speaking at an election meeting here on Friday prior to an address by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Dr. Parameshwara said that the people of the State were fed up with the misrule of the BJP and therefore a change would occur after the polls.

Dr. Parameshwara said that in the last five years, the BJP was unable to give pension to elderly people. It had failed to issue below the poverty line ration cards to eligible beneficiaries.

Referring to the floods and relief measures in the State, he wanted to know where did the Rs. 1,680-crore grant released by the Union government go. Besides, the BJP government had failed to rehabilitate affected people.

If voted to power, the Congress would provide 30 kg rice to the needy at Re. 1 a kg and a subsidy of Rs. 4 a litre of milk to farmers.

Dr Parameshwara appealed to voters to question the BJP leaders when they came to seek their votes about development schemes introduced in the State in the last five years and why they should vote for them after having been betrayed by it.

He alleged that the BJP leaders had looted the State and now were again going before voters seeking another term.

KPCC publicity committee president Veeranna Mattikatti and national general secretary Madhusudhan Mistri were present.
