Saying that Say CM campaign being launched by the Congress Party is done by jobless people, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said he believes that the works must speak than their words.

Talking to reporters at Hunasagi Helipad here on Wednesday,he said Congress leaders are free to do whatever they want.

But they have a big responsibility, running the government and doing people welfare works.We will go before people with our works”.

When his attention was drawn to former CM H.D.Kumaraswamy’s challenge to order inquiry into all the omissions and commissions committed by the previous Congress government headed by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah instead of sending the scam details to former president of AICC,Rahul Gandhi, the CM Bommai said already, three scandals of the Congress government were under investigation.

The sleuths of CID have arrested 20 persons in connection with teachers’ recruitment scandal. The CID has already submitted its report.

Several public prosecutors appointed in the Siddaramaiah government have been dismissed by court due to large-scale irregularities.

Rahul must open his eyes to see the scandals of his party government and let him decide action against those who were still in several party positions.

On pot-holed roads in Bengaluru,the CM said instructions are given to fill up potholes on all roads in Bengaluru City on the war-footing.

Besides,inquiry has been ordered into the incident.Former CM,H.D.Kumaraswamy must remember that deaths due to potholes had happened during his tenure too.
