Bengaluru, Jul 27: Former Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy on Monday took strong exception to the BJP's celebration over completing one year in office and alleged that people are suffering due to anti-people policies of the state government.

In a tweet on Monday, he said that since the last six months pension due to physically challenged, old age and Widow pensions were not paid. He urged the Government Issue emerge order to release pension amounts immediately. It was shameful on the part of the Government to keep the pension amount being kept pending.

This government has no eyes and ears and claiming only challenging years and transparent government, what examples required for them, he questioned.

Bengaluru, Sept 29: Slamming BJP MP Tejasvi Surya over his recent comments that Bengaluru has become the "epicentre of terror activities", former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy on Tuesday said the remark is a disgrace to the city, which "does not belong to militants".

The Janata Dal (Secular) leader further said that the statement was even an "insult to senior BJP leaders" and demanded an apology from the "concerned BJP leader".

"Some people having links with terrorist organisations were caught after the D J Halli incident. Our criticism must be against them... not the home of millions of people... Bengaluru does not belong to militants, it is ours... Bengaluru is our pride," Kumaraswamy's tweet in Kannada read.

He was referring to an incident of mob violence on August 11 when over 3,000 people went on a rampage, torching the residences of Congress MLA R Akhanda Srinivasa Murthy and his sister Jayanthi, besides D J Halli and K J Halli police stations in Bengaluru.

Without naming the BJP leader, he added, "The insult made by some commentators within the BJP that Bengaluru is a centre of terror activities is a disgrace to the city. I saw in media how CM B S Yeddyurappa struggled to justify such a statement, during a press conference on Monday. This slanderous statement is an insult to the senior BJP leaders as well."

A day after becoming the president of the of BJP's youth wing on September 26, Surya had said that Bengaluru has become an epicentre of terror activities and that he has urged Union Home Minister Amit Shah to set up a permanent division of the National Investigation Agency.

The statement drew sharp criticism from the Opposition. Earlier, Congress' D K Shivakumar had asked the BJP to sack him from his new post.

TH30ASSEMBLY.jpg

Bengaluru, Sept 27: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has won the trust vote in the state Assembly against the no-confidence motion by the Congress against his government.

The no-confidence motion moved by the opposition Congress was defeated by voice vote on Saturday night after a fierce debate for about six hours.

The no-confidence motion was moved by leader of the opposition Siddaramaiah.

Karnataka assembly Speaker Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri had on Thursday admitted a no-confidence motion moved by the Congress against the BJP government led by Yediyurappa.

Responding to it, Yediyurappa had said that he had no objections to the no-confidence motion moved by the Opposition.

"I have no objections to the no-confidence motion, let them do it. Every six months they must move the no-confidence motion once so that I can stay safe for the next six months," Yediyurappa had told reporters.

The Congress leaders including Siddaramaiah and MLA Ajay Singh had said that the party will seek to raise corruption charges against the government in the Assembly.

"There is rampant corruption in the government, people are dying everywhere and every day. In the last one week we have lost one central minister, one Rajya Sabha MP and an MLA. In the corona corruption case, there has been a corruption of almost Rs 2,000 crores and there are riots everywhere. People are dying, and there are corruption charges against the Chief Minister. The no-confidence motion is about the corruption charges in various areas, including his family and various departments also," Singh had said.
