Siddaramaiah hits back at PM Modi over his 'looting' remarks

Bengaluru, Nov 7 (IANS): Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his remarks that the Congress government is looting the state.

Earlier, Modi had said that the Congress government, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Deputy Chief Minister D.K Shivakumar are looting the state of Karnataka.

The Chief Minister dubbed Modi’s allegation as a bundle of lies.

Talking about the former chief minister H.D Kumaraswamy saying that the government is only engaged in attracting MLAs, the Chief Minister said Kumaraswamy has never spoken the truth. “Apart from making false allegations, he doesn’t do anything. Being in the opposition they should give suggestions to the government,” the Chief Minister said.

Talking regarding Hassan's Lok Sabha election candidate, the Chief Minister said that the candidate would be only announced once opinion of leaders of Hassan district are taken into consideration.

Reacting to MLA Basavaraj Yatnal's statement about Congress being a “shameless” government, the Chief Minister said that Yatnal himself is a shameless person.

He said that the BJP had also issued a notice to him because of his misbehaviour.

    Since 2014 Modi givt has been blaming a lot of opposition politicians of corruption and have misused the ED to conduct raids and harass people who raise their voice against the BJP and their bantas. But they havent been able to prove any. This is total brazen and unruly misuse of power by the BJP

    Congress govt in Karnataka is giving free benefits and guarantee schemes which is costing the state govt quite a bit so where is the scope for any loot but still there is significant economic growth in Karnataka after congress came into power and many MNCs, investments and start ups are making beeline into Karnataka. Whereas BJP govt is running into huge debt and fiscal deficit without any free benefits and guarantees. So where is the money gong in BJP govt rule???.?. Any blind can easily judge who is looting.
