Mangaluru, Mar 3: "BJP's face has turned red after allocating only Rs 3000 crore to minorities in the budget. We allocate thousands of crores for the development of temples. If we were anti-Hindu, would we allocate funds to temples? Providing funds to minorities does not make us anti-Hindu," said district in-charge minister Dinesh Gundu Rao.

Addressing the media on Saturday, March 3, Dinesh Gundu Rao remarked, "Out of the Rs 3.70 lac crore budget, Rs 3000 crore has been allotted to minorities, Rs 3000 crore to fisheries, and Rs 39,000 crore to SC/ST communities. Are they not Hindus?"

"When B S Yediyurappa was chief minister, rules were in place allowing funds from the endowment department to be allocated to other religions. Later, the Congress restricted endowment department funds exclusively to Hindus. Now, with these funds not going to other religions, will it be considered an anti-Hindu policy?"

"The BJP has alleged that development works have been hindered and economic conditions have worsened. However, during the last budget, we allocated Rs 52,000 crore for guarantee schemes and Rs 1.20 lac crore for development. Therefore, the minister has refuted the allegations made by the BJP.

"During our tenure, 18% more tax has been collected compared to the BJP's tenure. We have implemented guarantee schemes without corruption, benefiting the public. In the year 2023-24, only 2.2 billion dollars were invested in Gujarat, whereas in Karnataka, 20.4 billion dollars were invested. Therefore, claims that development works have not progressed are unfounded," he stated.

    Before 2014 there was only one types of Hindus were in India. But now two types, BJP supporting Hindus and Congress Hindus.

    The social justice mechanism of our political system has been a failure under the Congress rule and discrimination against the major community has been allowed to flourish. Isn't pampering the minorities a compulsion for the sake of votes ?

    Are you saying all these years, India didn't flourish under Congress rule? Where did you get this maths sir? You need to understand that 125 Billion USD a year is sent by our NRI Indians and OCI holders from Christian and Muslim majority countries, is this considered as discrimination against Hindus? Sir, are you saying that Central Government didn't release the funds to Karnataka, is it anti-Hindu and Anti-Karnataka also? Since BJP assumed power in Gujarat, not even a single government medical college is not built, is it anti-Hindu sir?
