Congress leader Siddaramaiah: Where’s acche din? | Hubballi News – Times of India


HANGAL (HAVERI): The political temperature in the Hangal assembly constituency is heating up with some prominent party functionaries launching the campaign.
On Saturday, former CM and opposition leader in the assembly, Siddaramaiah, launched his campaign in favour of Congress candidate Srinivas Mane and attacked BJP.
“In 2012 elections, BJP had promised that petrol prices will never be more than Rs 60. Many people got carried away and they voted for BJP. Today, you see where the prices of petrol have reached. Is this the BJP government’s ‘acche din’ (good days)? Now people should think before voting for them,” said Siddaramaiahsaid.
He alleged the BJP government in the state has also stopped all-public welfare schemes introduced during the Congress government. “The leader of the saffron party doesn’t have concern for poor and needy people in society,’’ he asked.
He also took on BJP candidate Shivaraj Sajjanar during his campaign at Malagund village.
“He is not Sajjan (good) he is Durjan (bad) because he and late MLA C M Udasi ensured the closure of Sanguru Cooperative Sugar Factory,” he said.
Agriculture minister B C Patil, who was leading BJP’s campaign at Baichuvalli village, countered Siddaramaiah saying he had made same allegations against Udasi in the 2018 assembly polls, but he won hands down.
“Voters know that he always makes false allegations against us,’’ he added.

RSS out of compulsion
Chief minister Basavaraj Bommai praising RSS just to retain his chief minister’s post, said opposition leader in assembly, Siddaramaiah.
Speaking to reporters at the airport in Hubballi on Saturday, Siddaramaiah said Bommai was not groomed in the school of RSS, but he is giving out KIADB land to Chanakya University being set up on RSS ideology.
“He has to do it inevitably. But he should know that India has promoted to 111th place in hunger index and the number of jobless people is increasing in the country,” he suggested.
