Karnataka’s former Chief Minister, Basavaraj Bommai, has criticized the ruling government, led by the Congress party’s Siddaramaiah, for not fulfilling their election promises on the first day of their rule. Bommai stated that it was a “betrayal of people’s trust” and that the government should have made sure that their assurances were being implemented.
Bommai also added that the government’s decision to announce a loan waiver for farmers was “nothing but a gimmick” and that it had failed to provide anything substantial. He pointed out that most of the farmers in the state didn’t have any bank loans, and those who did have loans weren’t eligible for the waiver.
The former Chief Minister also criticized the government’s decision to continue with the previous administration’s projects, such as the Metro Rail, without any new initiatives. Bommai said that the government had failed to provide any new developmental schemes or programs for the betterment of the state.
He further stated that the state’s law and order situation had deteriorated under the current government, with incidents of violence and crime increasing. Bommai added that there was a sense of fear among the people, and the government needed to take steps to ensure their safety.
Bommai’s comments come at a time when the Congress government is facing criticism from several quarters for its poor performance on various fronts. The recent floods in parts of the state have also exposed the government’s inadequate response to the crisis, with relief efforts being labeled as “slow” and “inefficient.”
In conclusion, Bommai has slammed the Siddaramaiah-led government for its failure to deliver on its promises and has called for the implementation of new developmental schemes. He has also expressed concern over the state’s law and order situation and called for urgent action to ensure the safety of the people. It remains to be seen whether the government will take note of his criticism and take corrective measures to address these issues.
