HOLALKERE: BJP President Amit Shah on Wednesday hit out at Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah claiming that his government in the state is anti- Hindu. "This govt of Karnataka is doing vote bank politics, it is an anti-Hindu govt. They have withdrawn all cases against SDPI, which is an anti-India organisation," Amit Shah said while addressing the 'Parivartana Yatra' in Chitradurga in Karnataka.
Keeping up his attack on the Congress government, he said that he had come to the state to bust the myth which the CM had created that the Centre has not done anything for Karnataka. "I have come to answer the CM's question on what has Centre done for Karnataka. In 13th Finance Commission under UPA, Rs 88,583 cr was allocated for Karnataka, under our government in 14th Finance Commission, Karnataka was given 2 lakh 19 thousand crore," he claimed.
However, he turned the table on the CM asking what did Siddaramaiah do for the state. "Where did all the money given by the Centre go? Did it reach your village? Look for a Congressman in your village, 5 years back what used to be a thatched house will now be a huge 4-storey house with an expensive car parked in front," he added.
Siddaramaiah had accused the BJP, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), others of disturbing peace in the state. "BJP, RSS, Bajrang Dal have extremist elements. the government will not leave those who disturb peace. We will not tolerate it, doesn't matter if it is SDPI or Bajrang Dal, whichever organisation it is, we will not tolerate it," the Karnataka CM said.
