Through the Congress Nadige Samarasyasa Kadege rally, the party wants to give a clear message to the BJP to stop abusing the minorities and harassing youths from different communities for socialising with each other, said KPCC President Dr G Parameshwar.
Parameshwar told Express that members of different communities have to live together harmoniously. “There is a limit to everybody’s patience. If the abuse is not stopped, a day will come when there will be a retaliation. It may be in the form of terrorism or any other activity. Let us not give scope for it,” he said.
He added that Congress was the future of Karnataka. “Every time we come to power we have brought in revolutionary changes. When SM Krishna was the CM, there was an IT, BT revolution. It created employment and resulted in a spin effect, through which vegetable vendors to shopping malls were benefited,” said Parameshwar.
“If the Congress comes to power it will concentrate on irrigation and power sectors. By improving irrigation the agricultural productivity will increase. In the Krishna basin alone we can turn 25 lakh acres of barren land into green fields,” Parameshwar said.
He added that the padayatra had changed his outlook towards local issues.
