CHIKMAGALUR: Investment, development and political stability are interlinked. Likewise, internal bickering of the BJP affecting political stability and political instability hindering the progress, said State Youth Congress president Rizwan Harshad.
He told reporters here on Thursday that political drama, internal bickering, the BJP government’s misrule and rampant corruption have cast shadow on the governance which has instigated the bureaucrats to indulge in corruption. The BJP’s manifesto released during the last Assembly elections did not match with its actions. Promise of employment to one lakh youth and creation of jobs to unemployed educated youth have just remained on the paper, he rued.
The Chief Minister is helpless, as he holds 22 portfolios. It is doubtful of him to present the budget, if former CM B S Yeddyurappa’s deadline was any indication, he informed.
Saying that BJP candidate Sunil Kumar was the only candidate to lose Karkala constituency in the BJP wave that swept across the state in the last Assembly elections, he said that Sunil was a rejected candidate and his antecedents were not good as the High Court had passed the strictures in Padmapriya case.
He lauded the UPA government’s JnNURM and Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme. Chikmagalur Assembly constituency youth congress president Sandeep, Venkatesh Gowda and others were present.
