Former Karnataka Minister and Janata Dal(Secular) leader Sa Ra Mahesh alleged that the BJP Government instead of listening to the grievances of flood affected people first, busy in handing over the phone tapping case to CBI and Ministry formation.
Speaking to newsmen here on Wednesday, he said during the floods in Kodagu last year the Congress-JDS coalition government led by Chief Minister H D Kumraswamy provided Rs 10,30,000 to the people who had lost their Houses along with Rs 3800 as directed by NDRF and Rs 50,000 for those who had lost their House hold appliances.
But the present BJP government had reduced to rental amount to Rs 5000 and assured of constructing the Houses at a cost of Rs 5 lakh. People of the State have elected 25 Lok Sabha members from the BJP. They should pressurize the central government to release more funds. “I will discuss with the Chief Minister in this issue”, he added.
Referring to recent Cabinet Expansion, he said that it was unfortunate that the old Mysuru region has been sidelined and they have kept the post vacant to satisfy a dissatisfied soul which supported to make the coalition government fall, senior MLAs have been sidelined against the ethics of BJP.
