HD Kumaraswamy says govt stalled development works, threatens protest in front of Yediyurappa’s residence | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Alleging that the government has stayed development works in Hassan, former CM HD Kumaraswamy and MLAs from the district have decided to protest in front of the chief minister’s home- office on Monday.
Kumaraswamy on Friday wrote to Yediyurappa in which he listed out works stalled by the government and claimed they were announced in the budget and got approval of the legislature during the Congress-JD(S) coalition government. While some works had begun, others were about to, but the BJP government stalled them because of “personal enmity”, Kumaraswamy alleged.
The stalled development projects include: Construction of a greenfield airport on the outskirts of Hassan city, development of Channapatna lake at a cost of Rs 144 crore and setting up of a horticulture university at Somanahalli Kavalu.
In his reply, the CM said due to financial stress induced by the pandemic, several works have been stopped. “Now that the economy is recovering, the government will release funds for the sanctioned works in Hassan in a phased manner,” he said, requesting Kumaraswamy to drop the protest plan.
