MP claims development projects have come to a standstill in the State

Nalin Kumar Kateel, MP, alleged here on Saturday that the Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy is doing the Grama Vaastavya programme to cover up the administrative failures of the coalition government.

Speaking at a meeting of BJP workers to launch a membership drive from July 6, Mr. Kateel alleged that development projects have come to a standstill under the coalition government’s administration in the State.

The Chief Minister is only trying to shift the attention of people by engaging in the village stay. The government has failed to address the drought related issues, he alleged.

It would have been better if the Chief Minister would had stayed in a five-star hotel by spending ₹5 lakh per day than by staying in a village by spending over ₹1.5 crore per day, Mr. Kateel said.

“The Chief Minister is only worried about saving his chair and not keen on solving the problems of people,” he alleged.

Mr. Kateel alleged that the Congress is responsible for the water crisis in Mangaluru. It was the Congress- led government which implemented the Nethravathi river diversion by taking up the Yettinahole project.

He claimed that the BJP had not compromised on its ideologies and its working style since the days of the Jan Sangh. He said that on the other hand the Congress has compromised both. Hence it has been reduced to such a level that it was not getting enough seats in the Lok Sabha election to get the Opposition party status in the Lower House.

Kota Srinivasa Poojary, Leader of the Opposition in the State Legislative Council, and Shobha Karandlaje, MP, Udupi-Chikkamagaluru participated.
