Congress legislators have lost faith in their own government: Karandlaje

Submitted by alvin on Tue, 2016-05-17 17:46 Udupi: Congress legislators have lost faith in their own government, said Shoba Karandlaje, MP of Udupi-Chickmagalur LS constituency, on Tuesday.Addressing media persons at Dr VS Acharya Auditorium over the completion of 3 years of Congress government in the state, Karandlaje said senior Congress leaders were slamming their own government as the worst they had witnessed in the state. This government has promoted only corruption and not development. The chief minister is not able to control his own ministers and government officials, she claimed.Levelling a series of allegations, Karandlaje said funds for completed projects for providing drinking water had not been released. “Contractors are not willing to participate in tenders fearing delay in payments. The central government has released Rs 1520 crore to tackle drought situation in the state, but the government is not effectively responding,” Karandlaje claimed.The MP also claimed that the government’s Anna Bhagya scheme was helping Congress leaders to illegally transport rice to other states. Karandlaje said the milk powder provided under Ksheera Bhagya scheme was not fit for consumption.“When BJP talks about development, Siddaramaiah diverts the issue. He has not consulted MPs from Karnataka since December 3, 2013. Ministers are not touring the districts and holding review meetings. They are also not available in the legislative assembly,” Karandlaje said.
