Bengaluru: Senior Congress leader H K Patil asks CM to announce new schemes for minorities


Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (DC)

Bengaluru, Jul 8: In a letter to Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, senior Congress leader and former minister H K Patil has urged to set right in his budget by announcing new schemes for religious minorities and north Karnataka before the budget document is approved by the legislature.

In the letter Patil stated that the CM ought to have announced programmes for minorities. In the 2018 Assembly election, minorities were responsible for the victory of secular parties.

“We should have seen in the budget a special package for minorities, especially the poor among them. At least, this can be set right by you announcing some new programmes for minorities during your response in the ongoing budget session," he wrote.

Extending concern for north Karnataka, Patil wrote, "Many new taluks are located in north Karnataka and people expected a special programme for infrastructure creation. Instead, the budget only reiterates what was proposed earlier and there’s nothing new."

Patil has also written to former chief minister Siddaramaiah asking the latter to convene a meeting of the Coordination and Monitoring Committee, which he heads, to discuss the two serious issues of neglecting minorities and regional imbalance.

Patil represents Gadag constituency.

    Sir Patil, please don't try to kill the hen for many golden eggs at once. Be happy with one egg per day... Be tolerant and patient towards your fellow leaders and take part in the development of the state, so minorities also are taken care of simultaneously.

    HK Patil is talking about minorities. Can he find out why Merit Scolarship are not given for the minorities who had scored high marks for the year 2016 - 2017. While checking the status in the web it shows pending in the bank. Your congress government was ruling the state. Tried calling the minority office in Bangalore and no one is picking up the phones. Even e-mails are not replied. So you have no right to talk on behalf of minorities.
