Congress to go before people against ‘40% commissions’ govt
"The party leaders will embark state tour from Friday onwards. We will go before the public", Opposition leader Siddaramaiah said.
Bengaluru: Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) has decided to hit the streets against the alleged ‘40% commissions’ of the BJP government.
Opposition leader Siddaramaiah said that “party leaders will embark state tour from Friday onwards. We will go before the public, will explain to them about rampant corruption of the BJP government and harassment to the civil contractors demanding 40% commission to release the funds for civil works”, he said.
“We have already submitted the memorandum to the Governor demanding him for the sacking of RDPR minister K.S.Eshwarappa and his immediate arrest in connection to abetment to suicide of civil contractor Santosh Patil”, Mr. Siddaramaiah added.
Contractors Association President Kempanna alleged that there is a 40% commission in all departments and he wrote Prime Minister Narendra Modi to order an investigation in the matter. Nearly 10 months left after he complained to the Prime Minister, but ‘Choukidhar’ Prime Minister has not taken any action. Even Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai not acted on his complaint, Mr. Siddaramaiah criticized.
“This is a very serious issue if ministers demanding 40% commission, how can contractors assure quality works, BJP is looting the state exchequer”, he alleged.
Congress will also decide to resort to protests and gherao to Chief Minister Bommai on Thursday.
Police should arrest accused number one K.S. Eshwarappa immediately. Since FIR has been filed against him under IPC 34 AND 306, Mr. Siddaramaiah demanded.
