BJP to launch a 14 days 'Protect Bengaluru' Yatra from tomorrow
Bengaluru: After resounding success of 'Parivarthana Yatra in all the 224 Assembly constituencies in Karnataka, Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to launch 'Protect Bengaluru' Yatra from Friday to woo the voters in the election to the Legislative Assembly due in May.
Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar, who is also in-charge of Karnataka election, said that the Yatra will be held for 14 days in all the 28 Assembly constituencies in this Silicon city to create awareness among the public and also to protest against failures of the ruling Congress during its five years rule.
"Arrogance of power has led to collapse of law and order in the city which was earlier a peaceful city. Crimes including Murder, rape, atrocities, rape on women are increasing day-by-day after Congress came to power. Corruption has became rampant," Mr Javadekar alleged.
Accusing that Siddaramaiah government has failed to utilise funds sent for Central Government schemes, Mr Javadekar alleged that the money released under 'Swachh Bharat' , 'Smart City' etc., were not utilised and
the only achievement of the Congress government is it has converted Bengaluru City into a 'garbage City'. A beautiful city was turned into a 'Pot full City'.
The Union Minister alleged that honest officers were harassed by transferring. Police officers were attacked by goondas while they were discharging their duties. "This shows that goondas and rowdies have gained upperhand and there is no fear and law and order has totally failed under the present government" he added.
Releasing a booklet of Chargesheet, Mr Javadekar said that it contains failures of this government in the city.
