Bengaluru: CM Siddaramaiah alleges IT officials enticed DK Shivakumar to join BJP


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Nov 9: Karnataka chief minister (CM), Siddaramaiah, accused income tax (IT) officials who raided energy minister, Shivakumar's properties, of asking him to join BJP at the time of the raid itself. He was speaking at the programme, 'Naraluttide Bharata (India is suffering)' programme organized by Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee on Wednesday November 8 as mark of protest against demonetisation exercose of the central government.

"The union government is using Central Bureau of Investigation, income tax, and enforcement directorate for political reasons. This development is detrimental to democratic set up," he observed.

Siddaramaiah recalled that Narendra Modi, before he became the Prime Minister (PM), had predicted good days ahead for the country but quipped that good days seem to have come only for Adani, Ambani, and Baba Ramdev. Recalling that the PM had promised to credit Rs 15 lac to the accounts of each citizen, he said not a single rupee has come so far. "Although the PM promised to provide employment to two crore unemployed youth each year, he could not create even twenty lac jobs," he alleged.

"Yeddyurappa has been openly claiming that Karnataka government under my leadership is the most corrupt government. But Yeddyurappa and Amit Shah both were jailed in the past. If they have some self respect, they should not be seen in public. Ours is the most transparent and people-friendly government," he stated.

Siddaramaiah accused BJP of indulging in wrong things when in power and now taking out 'Parivartana Yatra'. He said that several BJP leaders have termed this as 'KJP Yatra'. "BJP leader, Sogadu Shivanna, has accused BJP leaders of distributing saris and money to people who attended BJP convention. Yeddyurappa has only two people with him, Shobha Karandlaje and Puttaswamy. No other BJP leader supports him," he stated.

The CM said that visits of Modi and Amit Shah will not do any wonders as expected by BJP in Karnataka and that religion-based politics does not work here. He predicted defeat for BJP in Gujarat this time.

Siddaramaiah said that BJP's Parivartana Yatra programme attracted only a crowd of 20,000 as against claims of that party leaders that three lac people would come together for this programme. He charged BJP leader and former deputy chief minister, R Ashoka, of distributing land illegally, in the capacity of the president of Bagar Hukum Committee. He also launched scathing attack on opposition leaders, Jagadish Shettar and K S Eshwarappa. He said that Eshwarappa does not have any brain.

The chief minister also launched verbal tirade against JD(S) leaders, Deve Gowda and Kumaraswamy. He recalled that Kumaraswamy had claimed credit for his brother, Revanna, for having started the scheme of giving milk to children. "If they had launched all the schemes, why do they now conduct 'Karnataka Vikasa Yatra'? Did they not achieve any progress when in power? During Kumaraswamy's village stay programmes, he used to carry his own bed and pillow," Siddaramaiah claimed.

    The Income Tax Department, The compromised beureu of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate have lost all credibility and people have lost complete confidence in these agencies. Agree god days have come only for business men of Gujarat like Ambani and Adani. There is total mis management in the country with no accountability.

    One wonders if the ugly Siddaramaiah payed taxes for his illegal collection of Rolex watches. He is the man responsible to talk about bad roads with killer potholes and sewage "snow" in Benguluru, but talks and encourages his ministers to be corrupt and evade taxes.

    I think Mr.SleepRamaiah is becoming desperate by the day as he is coming with such retarded statements day in and day out. Which fool will ask a powerful minister to join the BJP openly?

    CM has got all the powers to run the state in a polite manner and here it looks like our KG students are more matured than CM of a State. Always accusing others and trying to pass the buck on others. It is disgusting.

    Congress ruined our country in 60 years? Wonderful Statement and should be awarded . That means all development and progress of our country happened within 3 years?. Height of hypocrisy. Though I am not favouring any political party because all are same and all they do is blame one another. But it is wrong to say that no development has taken place during last 60 years. Go back and check what was the condition of our nation pre-indepedence and after independence. Neither Congress nor BJP are saints. Accept the truth and be honest.

    Sidduji,

    What you said 100% right......But I am Not supporting you due to Tippu Jayanthi ( minority appeasement )...... If you are really concerned then you should celebrate "His Royal Highness Late Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV " .founder of modern Karnataka, who developed erstwhile Mysore Kingdom from underdeveloped to most developed & richest kingdom, Compare to others in British India. His development and vision was highly appreciated by British Monarch...

    Not only you Indian, Bangalore. The whole country had pinned a lot of hopes on Mr. Modi which is why the people had voted for the BJP. But what a let down it has been! He has certainly not been able to keep up the promise the people placed in him. Mr. Modi has disappointed the whole country. He has made ducks and drakes of the opportunity the people gave him. Clearly it is all sizzle and no steak. His disappointing performance has punctured his credibility. It is time to look for an alternative.

    Bharatiya, I perfectly agree with you that Congress took 60 years to ruin the country, but Modi has done in just 3 years. That's the reality.
