CM’s state Budget is far from reality: Cong leader M Lakshman

Mysuru, March 5:- Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) spokesman M Lakshman on Saturday (March 5) slammed Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, saying much has been promised in the Budget but nothing is going to come through. “Bommai talks of start-ups but who is going to give them loans. The state Budget is totally misleading. For anyone to start a small-scale industry, he or she will need at least three years.”

He was addressing a press conference at Congress’ Indira Bhavan on JLB Road here today.

Lakshman said, “Bommai thinks it is easy to start an industry but it is not so. The Budget has nothing for the common man. The only plus point is that the Chief Minister stood for two hours. But for that, there is nothing worth mentioning in the Budget.”

Training his guns on Mysuru-Kodagu BJP Member of Parliament Pratap Simha, the Congress leader said, “He tends to take credit for every Budget. He claims Rs 89 crore has been sanctioned not to upgrade K R Hospital, but it is for something else. Simha should read the Budget before talking anything.”

Lakshman said, “In the last Budget, they had promised to develop the place near Kabini Reservoir on the lines of Brindavan Gardens but so far, nothing has happened. BJP’s Budget is limited to only announcements. Mysuru region has been neglected totally. Rs 1,000 crore sanctioned for Mekedatu project is laughable.” (MR, SH)
