Mangaluru: BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel threatened that his party will hold a massive protest if the ruling Congress government does not fulfill the poll promises.
Addressing presspersons Nalin said, “Congress leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Mallikarjuna Kharge, DK Shivakumar had made several poll promises before the elections. They had also said that these promises would be fulfilled within 24 hours of government formation. But now, despite 20 days of being in power, they haven’t fulfilled their guarantees.”
“Now, the Chief Minister of the state Siddaramaiah has realized that it is impossible to fulfill the poll promises. He has financial knowledge despite that he lied to the people,” said Nalin.
The Congress had promised to implement the ‘guarantees’ – 200 units of free power to all households (Gruha Jyoti), Rs 2,000 monthly assistance to the woman head of every family (Gruha Lakshmi), 10 kg of rice free to every member of a BPL household (Anna Bhagya), Rs 3,000 every month for unemployed graduate youth and Rs 1,500 for unemployed diploma holders (both in the age group of 18-25) (YuvaNidhi), and free travel for women in public transport buses (Shakti), on the very first day of assuming power in the state.
