Mangaluru, Jun 10: State BJP unit president and Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel has urged the government to impress upon the private bus operators to provide free bus facility for women in their buses.
Addressing media persons here on Saturday, June 10, he said, “There are several private buses in Dakshina Kannada and other parts of the coastal region. The government should allow women to travel free in these buses. If not, the BJP will hold a massive protest against the government.”
“The Congress has not announced any guidelines while announcing the five guarantees. But, now the government is misleading people by announcing the guidelines that are complicated and changing every day. This is a government of betrayal,” he said.
Nalin said the energy and transport department besides the bank staff were suffering due to the administration of the present government.
He also said that there is no guarantee that the Congress government would last its full term of five years. “There is an inner conflict within the party. No one knows which group will come out of the party,” he said.
He also added that the Congress claimed that it would give free electricity from June 1. But, after Congress assumed power, the government hiked the power tariffs arbitrarily. “People need not pay their electricity bills. The BJP is with the people,” Nalin said.
