Karnataka CM Has Betrayed People By Not Fulfilling Rs 1.610 Package Promise: Siddaramaiah

Mumbai: Congress leader Siddaramaiah on Wednesday accused the Karnataka government led by Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa of ‘cheating’ people for not fulfilling their promise of a Rs 1,610-crore COVID-19 package.

Lashing out on Yediyurappa over the matter, the Congress leader tweeted, “Chief Minister of Karnataka BS Yediyurappa has betrayed people by not fulfilling his Rs 1,610 crore package promise. He seems to be following his @BJP4India leader @PMOIndia @narendramodi.”

“Crisis and vulnerability should not be misused for political gains and BJP for India are insensitive towards the same,” the former Karnataka Chief Minister said.

Referring to media reports, Siddarmiah cornered the state government for asking the licence to release funds for unorganised sector workers.

“How can we expect washermen and other unorganised sector workers to have a licence for their work?” he asked.

It looks like Karnataka Chief Minister is very far from reality, he added.

On 6 May, Yeddyurappa urged the migrant workers to resume construction activities and announced a COVID-19 financial package of Rs 1,610 crore for the state.

The Chief Minister said, “A package of Rs 1,610 crores will be released as COVID-19 financial relief. One time compensation of Rs 5,000 will be given to 2,30,000 barbers and 7,75,000 drivers.”
