Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said Leader of the Opposition in the State Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah is under illusion that the people will bring back the Congress Party to power in the state.

Talking to reporters here on Monday,he said the Congress leaders,after five years of ruling the State under the leadership of Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah,were saying that they will come back to power.

Siddaramaiah had told hundreds of time that HD.Kumaraswamy and BS.Yediyurappa would not become the chief minister again.

The Congress party which had won 120 plus seats in 2013,reduced to 77 in 2018 Assembly polls.

The electorate has rejected the Congress Party that ruled the State for five years and gave number of programs.

The people have not forgotten the divide and rule policy and pushing the state to rock bottom between 2013 and 2018.So,there is no need to take Siddaramaiah’s statement very seriously.

More investment in coastal region

He said the government was expecting more investment in Mangaluru and Udupi region where there is abundant renewable energy,especially hydrogen fuel and Ammonia.

‘Congress means lie,lie means Congress’

Reacting to AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge’s statement,Bommai said the 50 years ruling of the country by the Congress Party was mired with corruption and drenched in corruption.

The Congress is ‘Gangotri’ of Corruption and it started with that party.To cover up their corruption, those leaders were making the charges against the incumbent BJP Government.

Their allegations are bundle of lies. It is beyond doubt that Congress means lie, lie means Congress.The corruption during the Congress Party ruling was being probed.
