Belur (Hassan), Apr 19: Why Prajwal Revanna and H D Deve Gowda did not raise their voices in parliament against the injustice to Karnataka, asked Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday.

Addressing Prajadhwani rally to campaign for Congress party’s Hassan Lok Sabha candidate Shreyas M Patel at Beluru in Hassan district, he said JDS supremo H D Deve Gowda, who had been a former Prime Minister and Chief Minister, should know how the Centre has committed gross injustice to the State in the devolution of funds and in granting approvals for important projects but chose to remain silent.

“Now, Deve Gowda along with his son H D Kumaraswamy, another former chief minister, are singing praises of Prime Minister Narendra Modi after their politically motivated alliance with BJP,” he said and wondered why Deve Gowda takes exception to my criticism of the Modi government on the flimsy ground that Modi represents 140 crore Indians.

“Deve Gowda has forgotten that a Chief Minister is equally important and a representative of 6.5 crore Kannadigas, I am no less insignificant when compared with the Prime Minister,” he said and maintained that any insult to the Chief Minister is an insult to the people of the State.

Siddaramaiah said Modi, who promised to create 2 crore jobs annually, has advised the unemployed youth to make and sell pakoras conveniently forgetting his own promise. “This is an insult to all self-respecting youth and citizens. The BJP should be punished for its failure to keep its promises,” he said.

The Chief Minister said Modi had been promising to double to income of farmers and shamelessly opened fire at the farmers protesting against the unjust farm laws brought by his government.

“Unlike Modi and BJP or its alliance partner, JDS, the Congress party does not make false promises and delivers as promised,” he claimed.

The Chief Minister alleged that the “BJP had fooled the people with its tall and unfulfilled promises” and said the Congress party takes action to improve the lives of the people and tries to solve their problems.

Siddaramaiah lashed out at Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who went to Rajya Sabha from the State, had promised to release Rs 5,300 crore for the Upper Bhadra Project. “This promise made in the Union budget has been belied. Even a single rupee has been released so far,” he said.

“Now, Prajwal Revanna, his uncle Kumaraswamy and grandfather Deve Gowda, have embraced BJP instead of questioning the injustice to Karnataka,” he said asking the people to reject the JDS and its alliance partner BJP.

The Chief Minister said the Congress party implemented the guarantees promised during the assembly polls to help the people suffering due to inflation and price rise. The guarantees have helped the poor and women, he said attacking BJP-JDS combine for not bothering about the welfare of the State.
