The BJP on Wednesday asked Governor H R Bhardwaj to advise the state government to roll back the recent hike in toll on Bangalore International Airport road and BMTC and KSRTC fares.

A party delegation submitted a memorandum to the governor drawing his attention to a long list of alleged failures of the Siddaramaiah government. The delegation included former chief minster D V Sadananda Gowda, party state president Prahlad Joshi, and former deputy chief ministers R Ashoka and K S Eshwarappa.

The party leaders thanked Bhardwaj for his concern on speeding up drought relief works. It may be recalled that Bhardwaj had recently expressed his displeasure over the Siddaramaiah government’s handling of drought relief works and drinking water problems.

The memorandum said Energy Minister D K Shivakumar had failed to manage the power situation as he announced load shedding expressing his helplessness instead of making an effort to mitigate the problem.

The BJP leaders alleged that law and order situation in the state is deteriorating and blamed Home Minister K J George’s inept handling of the department for the rising communal tension in the state.
