BJP betrayed people; need for change now: Sonia Gandhi Chikamagalur/Mangalore: Castigating the BJP government in Karnataka for "betraying" people's mandate, Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday made a strong pitch for a "change" and stable government in the state which was suffering due to "bad governance."

BJP betrayed people; need for change now: Sonia Gandhi "There is a need for a change as never before as the BJP has completely betrayed people's mandate and made them suffer due to bad governance. Immoral behaviour of persons in position of power has crossed all limits. Law and order has collapsed," Gandhi said.

Addressing public meetings in Chikamagalur and Mangalore for the May five Assembly polls, she said, "I remind the young generation that these are some of the darkest days ...People want change. The need for change is now, and now."

She charged that under the BJP's rule, mining mafias destroyed the mineral resources and fanatical elements damaged secular values of the state by spreading fear and hatred among people for their narrow political ends.

BJP's "misgovernance" also saw a lot of investors fleeing the state because of corruption, bad governance and crumbling infrastructure, Gandhi said. "Karnataka used to be held as an example of good governance. But it is the opposite now. This is not the people voted for."

Striking a personal chord at Chikamagalur, she said "We can never forget and will never forget that Chikmagalur adopted my mother-in-law Indira Gandhi as your own sister. Thirty five years ago, the people of Chikmagalur lent Indiraji a helping hand when she needed it most ..."

Indira Gandhi had won a by-election from Chikamagalur in 1978 during the erstwhile Janata Party rule that ultimately helped in resurrecting her political stature and domination and stage a comeback as Prime Minister.

In coastal Mangalore, considered a BJP stronghold, Gandhi tried to connect with the gathering, repeatedly using the Kannada word "badalavane" meaning change.

"People of Karnataka are looking for badalavane. They are looking for change. And the time for badalavane is now and the chance for that badalavane is 5th May (polling date)," she said.

In both the rallies, she asked the people to vote for stability for a brighter future of Karnataka.

"We cannot have government with every one day a chief minister changing. A stable government is the need of the hour. For that to happen, you (voters) need to vote for Congress to give a stable government," she said.

Gandhi was apparently referring to the change of chief ministers three times during the BJP rule which was also marked by intra-party squabbles creating an atmosphere of political uncertainty frequently.

The Congress chief also asked the BJP government to provide details of central funds given to the state for implementing various welfare schemes belonging to all sections of the society. "Where that all money gone?" she asked.

The immediate task lying before Congress is to restore Karnataka's pride and protect secular values of the state. "We reject any communal ideology," she said.

Bjp at least showed door to yeddy & no clean chits,because bjp `high command` or rather core was not involved. Bjp/Nda govts in states Gujrat,MP,Bihar etc & in center led by Atal have earned good will for the party. But before they could show anything by way of performence each one had its share of teathing troubles & `trial versions` be it Gujrat ,MP,Bihar etc. in states or even in center when these FIRST CAME INTO BEING! Given sustained campaign launched by hostile opposition in karnatka & UPA-2 in center( in blatent unconstitutional manner that even courts had to intervene) to DESTABILISE THE FIRST EVER BJP GOVT IN ENTIRE SOUTH INDIA performance was not bad. Karnatka, despite being constant focus of antinational/jihadi elements , enjoyed relative security and peace unlike maharashtra,delhi,assam etc. People of banglore have not forgotten terror leashed through internet targetting north eastern to defame banglore & BJP govt. Even completing full term against all odds and still continous attempt to weed out corrupt is a big achievment in itself. People are willing to forgive bjp n facilitate LOTUS BLOOM IN MUD that politics of this country has been reduced to by psedosecular corrupt jihadi congress/jd(s).

It is upto each individual to decide whether BJP has betrayed the people or not. As far as I know, they have not. They have removed the corrupt CM, knowing well that BJP will suffer with him going down. Did congress ever had the guts to stand against a corrupt politician within it`s party. They have covered and are still covering for Manmohan Singh and Chitambaram who are involved in 2G scam. They threaten to have CBI raid, if any of its ally tries to stand against them....and what the shit secularism is this Italian Madam talking of? If BJP has betrayed Karnataka (as per the Italian Mam), then congress has betrayed the whole country..

The biggest scam in India is the misuse of the surname of Mahatma Gandhi. In Kalyug, the fake non Hindu Gandhi`s continue to prosper going against the principles of truthfulness that Mahatma Gandhi preached. Why so? Drop the fake names, tell us your true religion and tell us (declare) about your personal wealth before you take moral high ground....................Karmik
