Mangaluru, May 26: "The Congress government which came to power by assuring five guarantees to the people of the state has not fulfilled the guarantees given to the people till date. So, people need not pay their electricity bills," said MP and BJP state unit president Nalin Kumar Kateel.
Addressing media persons here on Friday, May 26, Nalin Kumar said, “It is evident that people are angry when officials visit door-to-door asking the households to pay their electricity bill. If people face such problems, we will stand by them.”
He said people gave a clear mandate for the Congress for their five guarantees that they promised to the people. He said Siddaramaiah and D K Shivakumar had assured the voters that they would fulfill the guarantees given to people within 24 hours of assuming power in the first Cabinet meeting.
Kateel said though it has been close to two weeks since they were voted to power they have not uttered a single word on the guarantees given to the people.
“In the order there is no clear cut picture, like when promised guarantees will be implemented. The Congress government came to power by giving false assurances,” Kateel charged.
He said the party also promised to provide Rs 2000 to women in the state and assured the the public they could avail these guarantee benefits without any criteria.
He said the Congress had also promised free travel to women in public transport. But, the government has failed to fulfill the guarantees given to the people of the state.
People believed in Congress's guarantees, but now they are in anger. So, people need not pay their electricity bills, he added.
