Mysuru, February 11:- “The budget presented by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy is a budget without farsightedness and just a number game. He has given nothing to Mysuru in the budget,” said MLA S A Ramadass at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Monday.
“When B S Yeddyurappa was the chief minister, he provided Rs 150 crore for Mysuru city development. Kumaraswamy has not implemented any new scheme,” he said.
“We had requested for a waste management unit, development of Devaraja Market, Vani Vilasa Market at Agrahara, Mandi Market, old UGD, drainage and pipeline replacement, 10-day care centres for the security of senior citizens. None of these demands has been fulfilled,” he added.
“Around 82% of engineering students do not have jobs due to the poor quality of education and around 16 engineering colleges are being shut due to shortage of students. What was the need to open a technological university at Hassan now?” Ramadass questioned.
“Corruption is taking place in Ayushman scheme. The central government is giving 60% of funds for it, but the state government is hiding this. The government has not paid even a single rupee to the hospitals that treated patients who consumed poisoned food at Kichuguth Maramma Temple in Sulvadi village. They should clear under what act they can release funds for the treatment. The government has failed in controlling monkey fever,” he added.
He urged the government to take necessary action for the development of Mysuru before the implementation of the budget as it offers nothing to the district.
He said that the party (BJP) is not embarrassed about the audio released by Kumaraswamy and asked he only should clarify about it.
Corporators B V Manjunath, Shivakumar, H C Ramesh and others were present. (MR/KMR)
