Mysore, Apr 12 UNI | 4 months ago

Former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa today accused Congress party of misusing official machinery in the states under its rule after knowing that it will lose power at the Centre in the Lok Sabha election.

Speaking at a BJP election rally here, he said Congress-led UPA Government will pay the price for mal-administration and was at the verge of being thrown out of power.

The party had left the Indian economy at peril due to weak economic policies and left the poor to fend for themselves due to price rise. "The people of this country have decided to make Mr Narendra Modi as the next Prime Minister," he said. Mr Yeddyurappa said he was convinced after speaking to voters in Mysore-Kodagu segment, that BJP candidate Pratap Simha would win the segment with a handsome margin. He reminded the party workers that several development works had taken place when Shobha Karandlaje was the In-Charge Minister for Mysore district under the BJP rule and mentioned about the Rs 100 crore special grant he had given when he was the Chief Minister.

Former Minister B Sriramulu, who recently rejoined BJP, accused Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of neglecting development works in the State.

Speaking on the occasion, he said he was the Health Minister during the BJP rule, he had started the 108 ambulance service which has saved many lives, especially of the rural poor.
