GULBARGA: Dissolution of the state BJP government is imminent after the upcoming general elections, said Union Minister for Corporate affairs Veerappa Moily, who is also in-charge of the state Congress.
“The Udupi-Chikmagalur bye-election result is an indication as the constituency is the stronghold of the BJP-RSS and was represented by Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda,” Moily said.
He termed the BJP state government as ‘deaf and dumb’. He added that though three months ago, 123 taluks were declared drought-affected, the state government did not respond and only a day ago ministers started visiting these areas.
“By this time all the ministers and CM should have visited the drought-hit taluks and sent the report to the Union government. Where is the report on how much it has spent to tackle the drought from its share and how much from the Centre’s fund? Let the BJP make a public declaration,” Moily said.
Commenting on the video conference of the CM with the DCs of drought-hit districts, Moily said it would not solve the problem. “The Chief Minister should go to the affected places personally to instill confidence in the people and get the official machinery to start work,” he said.
On former chief minister Yeddyurappa’s visit to drought-affected places, Moily said that as Yeddyurappa has no chair to sit on, the only option was to travel.
