Will strongly oppose Siddaramaiah govt's asset monetisation move: Vijayendra

Bengaluru, June 19 (IANS): Karnataka state BJP chief B.Y. Vijayendra said on Wednesday that the party will strongly oppose the state government's move on asset monetisation in the state.

“The BJP party strongly opposes this move and would take every step to stop any such misadventures by this Congress government,” he said.

“When corruption rules the roost, greed overwhelms governance and a government that is subservient and under pressure from the Congress High Command to serve as its ATM, no wonder that the Congress government is desperate and leaving no stone unturned to milk every aspect of the state!” said Vijayendra.

“It’s an open secret that the state treasury has been ruined by the utter mismanagement of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's government. What a hapless situation to be in, that the government is considering selling off the public assets to meet its daily needs,” Vijayendra said.

"Even after being snubbed by the state electorate in the Lok Sabha elections, the Congress government refuses to mend its ways and pursue anti-people policies against the interests of the state," said the state BJP chief.

Earlier, former Chief Minister and Haveri MP Basavaraj Bommai also slammed the state government's move for asset monetization. He said this was proof of the government's bankruptcy and the BJP's mass movement was inevitable.

He also charged that the government's asset monetization scheme was aimed at benefiting real estate groups.

After hiking fuel taxes, the Siddaramaiah government was considering a plan to monetise at least 25,000 acres of land near Bengaluru to raise resources and sustain spending that has allegedly been heavily affected due to the five ‘guarantee’ schemes. The government is also mulling hiking water tariffs in Bengaluru.

    Sirji, can you please tell this and raise your voice to the Central Govt who have managed to sell so many Public assets to their favorite two. Where were you when all other essential commodities rates were hiked by center ? Try and start working towards betterment of people rather than speaking non sense to create trouble and restlessness in the society

    Just look at assets sold discretely to the preferred individuals/groups by the central government over the last 10 years... Also the mine fields and areas of worthwhile resources.... If a small percentage of land block under state government ownership is monetized what's the great issue?... We have silently borne all GST slaps and steep price rises... Only state government is giving some relief to the commonest of common people....

    Because Petrol rates have gone up, BJP is for statewide protest, but daily requirements like Tometo rates have also gone up Rs100. But nobody is bothered. I think Andha Bhaktas use Petrol only and Tometo not using it seems.

    You, the BJP's (Brhasta Jumla Paapies) did not oppose strongly while Narendra carried out Demonetization, privatization's, Withdrawing RBI's money and making us debtors by purchasing heavty loan from the foreign nations. It is good that the ONE WING OF THE BJP WAS CUT BY CONGRESS otherwise he was always flying abroad in our tax paid money.

    Go and do some useful work for the people who have elected you rather than making a nuisance of yourself and disturbing people’s everyday work. Pe ople of Karnataka have elected Congress by large majority and don’t try to impose your will on them or they may punish you like your boss.
