Shivamogga: "Farmers whose loans have not been waived have taken it to the streets to protest and as an outcome of this, people blocked the way of Chief Minister Kumarasamy, when he was on his way for village stay," opined Bharatiya Janata Party state President B S Yeddyurappa.
Yeddyurappa, who was at the tahsildar's office here to inaugurate MLC Rudregowda's office, spoke to the media and said "CM Kumaraswamy should first interact with the people of the state and know about their grievances, before going for village stays."
Responding to Kumaraswamy's tweet that the BJP was disrupting his village stay, Yeddyurappa said, "Neither the BJP nor the Congress, nor JD(S) have disrupted the chief minister but the drought-stricken farmers whose loans have not been waived are protesting against the CM for not fulfilling his promise."
"We have been telling the CM to interact with the people first and know their grievances before going for village stays. But the CM did not give heed to what we said and yelled at people yesterday".
"Deputy Chief Minister Dr. Parameshwara should withdraw his order for the DPR (Detailed Project Report) to draw water from Sharavati river to Bengaluru. The dams in Malnad regions are drained due to lack of rains. It is unscientific to draw water to Bengaluru during such a sensitive situation," said Yeddyurappa.
When told that a committee was formed by P Thyagaraj to draw water from Sharavati river to Bengaluru when the BJP was in power, BSY denied the allegation and claimed that it was false news.
