Hubballi: FM Nirmala Sitharaman gheroed for delay in flood relief funds

Daijiworld Media Network - Hubballi (MS) 

Hubballi, Oct 6: Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman had to face the protests at the city airport on Saturday, October 5. 

Women activists of Congress held protest in front of the airport accusing the central government of failing completely in giving flood relief funds to the state, even after two months of the deluge. The protesters tried to gherao the minister. 

Slogans were hurled against the union government, Prime Minister and finance minister. Police took the protesters into custody and released them later.


The protesters complained that "The central government is deliberately delaying the release of funds. The interim relief of Rs 1,200 crore is not at all enough. The central government is showing negligence in rebuilding the lives of the deluge victims. Nirmala Sitharaman, who is elected to the Rajya Sabha from the state, has no concern for the flood victims."

    1. Put blame on opposition for staging protest.
    2. Put blame on rains
    3. Put blame on previous govt's for deforestation.
    4. Put blame on media for exaggeration of damage.
    5. Put blame on officials for not ensuring adequate help in time, despite Modi govt., flood relief sanctioned even before the rains started in June.
    6. Tell bhakts to propagate the same through social media.

    Job done. By-election polls will ensure BJP victory, desperately required to retain power.

    Nirmala sita rama will blame for rain nd flood, for not granting relief amount for poor people. She will. Blame sky varuna, for access rain from sky.
    She is expert in putting blame on others.
