'This govt has completely failed, let's go for polls': Shivakumar's dig at Yediyurappa government
Speaking to the media, Shivakumar said: “BJP does not have the honour or capability to rule the state, they don’t know how to serve the people."
Karnataka's Congress chief DK Shivakumar on Sunday accused the BS Yediyurappa-led government of having failed in its handling of the flood situation and providing compensation to those affected over last few years. He further challenged the ruling party to go for the polls and get a fresh mandate.
Speaking to the media, Shivakumar said: “BJP does not have the honour or capability to rule the state, they don’t know how to serve the people…when there is difficulty and people are dying and are losing properties, this government has completely failed. Come let’s go for polls, to give a new administration."
Challenging the ruling party, he also questioned government's inability to give compensation to flood victims for the last two years.
"Why did not the prime minister come (to assess the flood situation in the state), don’t want, did they (centre) at least give the money? Why didn’t these MPs (25 BJP MPs) go (asking for compensation), what had happened to these MPs?," Shivakumar was quoted as saying by PTI.
Earlier on Sunday, CM Yediyurappa informed that around 113 villages and seven taluqs in Belgavi have been affected by floods caused due to incessant rains.
