BENGALURU: BJP national president Amit Shah on Saturday launched a direct attack on Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, calling his government the most corrupt he has ever known.
Shah, who was addressing a select audience of the state intelligentsia at an ‘Intellectual Meet’, said, “Throw out the Siddaramaiah government. Its ministers get raided and get caught but they are not asked to resign. This will never happen in our party.”

Shah also said a record amount of money was being allocated to the state for various schemes. “We have 106 schemes. But you people from Karnataka have nothing to cheer about as your government will not allow any of these programmes to reach you. Ask Siddaramaiah where all the money is going, because no one in this state is receiving this money. I myself am asking this government to give an account of the money,” he added.

Shah also said despite receiving increased allocation under many programmes, the state government constantly complained that the Centre was not giving them any money.
Shah said Congress was built almost like a club and had no ideological underpinnings like the BJP. “Congress was a special purpose vehicle built for gaining independence and it did not have any ideology or stream of thinking. When we got Independence, Nehru decided that everything Indian was obsolete. But we think our past should be modified by time and we need to rebuild the country and not build a new country from scratch based on thinking by the West,” he said.
