Karnataka CM seeks Modi's intervention in Mahadayi river dispute

“Will Rahul Gandhi be silent?” BJP on Congress leader's Twitter Jab at PM

On the PM's claim that his government has granted a huge financial package towards development of the state, which has failed to utilize it, Siddaramaiah countered it with: "PM keeps making comments that he has given so much money to the states".

Tearing into the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in Karnataka, Modi chided it for setting "new records" in corruption and asserted that the countdown for its exit has begun. "These are statistics released by the Central government".

State Congress chief G. Parameshwara said it was BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh that topped in the number of rape cases, according to NCRB figures.

The government has made way for the builders' mafia, sand mafia and other corrupt actions, he said.

Referring to the steel flyover project, Mr Siddaramaiah said thatthe Prime minister had spoken about it after the government haddropped it following the national green tribunal direction. "Their own states are the worst in terms of crime and a Prime Minister bases his argument on untruths and wrong information to insult Karnataka and its people", he said. "We gave Rs. 2L crore". "While the vision of Centre is to make the country easy to do business in, the Congress has made Karnataka popular for "ease of doing murders".

"Even farmers producing fruits and vegetables are important to us". "When the UPA was in power at the Centre, Karnataka was allotted Rs 73,000 crore".




Bengaluru: THE BJP on Monday accused Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of insulting the office of the Prime Minister by not receiving him at HAL Airport on Sunday afternoon. The rally, which aimed at bringing the BJP back to power in the southern state on the plank of development, was led by its state unit president BS Yeddyurappa and the party's other state leaders like Union ministers Prakash Javadekar and Piyush Goyal, Ananth Kumar, DV Sadananda Gowda and Ananthkumar Hegde.

He was responding to a question on the lack of job creation in India in the last four years.

The Chief Minister welcomed the Prime minister to Bengaluru, and asked him help the State resolve the Mahadayi water dispute. Investigate Judge Loya's death, 3.

Siddaramaiah also asserted that Modi's visit or the rally would have no implications in Karnataka. "Developers and sand dealers are ruling the roost".

Speaking to News18, Kannada leader and ex-MLA Vatal Nagaraj, who called for the bandh on Sunday, said: "The people of Mumbai-Karnataka region have no drinking water".

The Chief Minister also criticised the PM Modi for not mentioning the Mahadayi issue in his one-hour speech at the rally.
