Mysuru, September 21:- The Congress’ women’s wing of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) staged a protest against the central and the state BJP governments for not providing relief to flood-affected people. A rally was held from the Congress office till the Post Office at Nehru Circle near the Lashkar Police Station here on Friday.
“The BJP government, which has risen to power in an unjust manner, has failed to provide relief to the flood victims in the state. Chief minister B S Yediyurappa has failed to respond to the plight of flood victims in the state including North Karnataka. The public must come to know the failure of the government,” said KPCC women’s wing state president Dr Pushpa Amarnath.
The BJP government has come to power using sentimental issues. But it has failed to reach the expectation of the public. The central government has not given grants to provide relief to flood victims. This has upset the development of both the state and the nation, she accused.
AICC secretary Vishnunath, former MLA HP Manjunath, district Congress president Dr BJ Vijayakumar, city Congress president R Murthy, former ZP president K Marigowda and others took part in the protest. (MR/KS).
