He said through an app ‘Meri Sadak’ the public opinion on the village roads under the Pradhana Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)  is being collected.  

People are taking photos of potholes and posting them. The State Government has failed to fill up the potholes. The public is smart and hence are posting photos of potholes to tell the facts, he said.

Until recently it was being said that DySP Ganapathi had hanged himself but now they say a bullet is found.  Minister K J George is number one accused and how is he continuing as a minister? Siddaramaiah government is corrupt, he alleged.

The Central Government projects are where people participate. In Swachh Bharath project Amitabh Bachchan is also participating. Even actor Kamal Hassan has approved the Swachh Bharath mission, he said. In the Bellandur Lake fire due to pollution is increasing.

When I was the Environment Minister and Venkaiah Naidu was Urban Development Minister we had sanctioned Rs 800 crores to Karnataka for lake development. The State Government has not utilised this grant. There are no development projects implemented by the State Government he said.
