Karnataka CM hits out at Centre on fund issue
Mangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister DV Sadananda Gowda on Sunday accused the Centre of showing step-motherly treatment towards the state by not releasing badly needed funds for drought relief operations.
"If the Congress-led UPA government really wants to respond to the plight of the affected people in Karnataka, it should release Rs 2,500 crore out of Rs 5,600 crore loss incurred by farmers due to drought," Gowda added.
Speaking to reporters here, he said if the Centre has any "concern" for Karnataka, it should release the funds sought.
