Hubballi: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai described the Congress Party as the den of corruption. Reacting to the bandh call given by the Congress party on 9 March against corruption, the CM told reporters here on Monday that the scams done by the Congress party are not one or two.
The time has come for that party to become extinct. Those leaders have given a call for a bandh, thinking that they can write their political future through protests. It is like they are daydreaming, and none will support it.
Basavaraj Bommai went on to say that people who make allegations must be clean-handed, and then they will have some value. But the Congress leaders have indulged in a number of corruption cases, starting from small items like pillows, mattresses, coffee, and biscuits all the way to irrigation.
When Siddaramaiah was the Chief Minister of Karnataka, he set a target for all the ministers. Ask M B.Patil, Dr H C. Mahadevappa, or K J. George about the target assigned to them. The Congress Party is replete with corruption, and their approach will not entice the voters. The people will give a befitting reply during the upcoming state assembly election.
Reacting to a question regarding the re-inauguration of the Shivaji Maharaj statue in Belagavi, he said the previous CM, B. S. Yediyurappa, had released Rs 50 lakh for this purpose. The Congress leaders have done this drama purely for the false prestige. It is not correct to politicise in the name of the national leaders.
On the arrest of one person in connection with the Mangalore cooker blast case, the CM said ISIS, an international terror organization, has claimed responsibility for it. The KPCC President, D.K. Shivakumar, had termed this incident a normal bomb. Now, what will Shivakumar say?
