Mysuru, April 12:- “When Siddaramaiah was the chief minister, he introduced Anna Bhagya, Vidyasiri, Matrupurna, Pashu Bhagya, Krushi Bhagya, Indira Canteens, Ksheera Bhagya and other schemes,” said Mysuru Congress spokesperson S Rajesh at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Thursday.
He was giving clarification on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Pratap Simha’s statement that Siddaramaiah had not done any work.
Rajesh said that Siddaramaiah constructed houses for the poor under NERM Scheme, developed slums and Mysuru KSRTC Bus Terminal. He alleged that Simha had not undertaken any developmental works in his constituency and as such, he has no right to comment on Siddarmaiah.
Kamala and Krishnamurthy were present. (MR/KMR)
