BENGALURU: Five ministers of the Siddaramaiah Cabinet on Tuesday released a 12-page booklet listing out the “misdeeds of the previous BJP-ruled civic body in the last five years.”

After the release, Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy said the booklet was prepared to “unveil the real face of the BJP” and to appeal to voters to reject the saffron party in the BBMP polls.

Reddy, who is also in-charge minister for Bengaluru Urban district, said the booklet has been vetted by an expert committee. “During the BJP rule, thousands of crores of rupees released by the state and the Union governments were either swindled or misused.”

Home Minister K J George blamed the “inefficiency of the three Union ministers from the state” for the city not figuring in the smart cities project.

“The BJP-ruled BBMP was marked by a series of scams, misgovernance and failure in delivering basic services to residents,” he said.

Appealing to people not get swayed by the “sweet words of BJP leaders,” the minister promised voters that they will bring back the past glory of Bengaluru as the Garden City. Food and Civil Minister Dinesh

Gundu Rao  and Agriculture Minister Krishna Byregowda said the booklet also lists the initiatives taken by the Congress government to bring the culprits to book.
