Bangalore, April, 28 : Expressing grave concern over increasing prices of essential commodities, HD Deve Gowda, the former Prime Minister of India alleged that BS Yeddyurappa, the Chief Minister had turned Karnataka into a safe haven for big traders indulging in illegal hoarding of food-grains.

Addressing a huge rally organised by the Janata Dal (Secular), along with Communist parties and the All India Forward Block at the Palace Grounds in Bangalore. On Tuesday, April 27, Gowda said that such big traders are supporters of the Bharatiya Janata Party. “That is why no action is being taken against them,” he added.

The rally was held to protest against the failure of the UPA Government at the Centre and the BJP Government in the State to check price rise.

Referring to the good response from people to the rally, Deve Gowda said his party would tie up with the Communist parties and the AIFB in all the elections, including the next Assembly polls.

GV Srirama Reddy, leader of Communist Party of India (Marxists) and former MLA, alleged that the BJP Government had more concern towards cows than for human beings.

VJK Nair, State secretary of CPI(M), expressed dissatisfaction over the Centre providing Rs. 5 lakh crore-worth benefits to 1,600 industrial firms whereas it was possible to provide food-grains for all poor families for an entire year with Rs. 4 lakh crore.

Siddanagouda Patil, State secretary of CPI warned that a day may come when hungry poor people would ransack food-grains' godowns if the price-rise of essential commodities is not checked.
