The Yatra starts from Belagavi in North Karnataka.
Karnataka Congress President TK Shivakumar and Assembly Opposition Leader Siddaramaiah will travel in the same bus from tomorrow till 29th and undertake this campaign yatra. After that both of them will undertake the Yatra separately. TK Shivakumar will campaign in the southern part of Karnataka and Siddaramaiah in the northern part.
As the election campaign yatra is about to begin, the charge sheet prepared by the Congress party against the ruling party BJP was released today. Also, a website was launched today to inform people about the features to be included in the election manifesto of the Congress party. Also, the logo for this Yatra was also released today.
Speaking to reporters about this pilgrimage, Sivakumar said, “This pilgrimage will speak to the longings of the people. We will highlight the failures of the BJP in power for the last three and a half years and the achievements of the Congress government. We are undertaking this pilgrimage to seek the blessings of the people.
Let’s tell the people about what changes will happen with the formation of Congress government in Karnataka. We will present all the corruptions of the BJP government, the 40 percent commission they get, how they rob like Alibaba and 40 thieves, among the people,” he said.
After this, Siddaramaiah said, “Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Tommy is a very weak Chief Minister. None of the Chief Ministers in Karnataka has been as weak as him. He is afraid of central ministers. Karnataka Rs. 5,495 crore as a special fund was recommended by the 15th Finance Commission. But Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman refused to grant it. Basavaraj Pomi is not brave enough to get the funds.
In addition, this government has taken a loan of 3 lakh crore rupees in the last 4 years and has created a huge debt burden for the state. Per capita in Karnataka Rs. 83,000 crore debt burden has been shouldered by this government. If this is the case, how will the state progress?” he asked.
