Bengaluru, Sept 28: In an scathing attack on BJP government in Karnataka on amendment to APMC Act and Land Reforms Act, former Chief Minister and Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah on Monday said "If you believe in these amendments, dissolve the assembly and fight for elections with these promises in your manifesto."

In a series of tweets, he said that history will remember Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Minister of Yediyurappa's cabinet as ‘Ravanas’ who killed Farmers. “What moral authority does he have to implement Land and APMC reforms when there was no mention in your manifesto?, he questioned.

“Imagine to what extent farmers have been pushed for them to protest even during a pandemic? Don’t be a pawn in the hands of crony capitalists. Repeal the amendments now and save their lives,” he added.

“Farming related amendments are the perfect example for backstabbing. When the whole country was worried about the pandemic, BJP slyly exploited the vulnerability to kill farming communities.

He further said, “Yediyurappa, Karnataka has not forgotten your orders to kill two farmers. Now, you are out to kill the entire farming community. Their tears are very strong and can destroy your arrogance.”

“You betrayed farmers in their fight for Mahadayi-Mekedatu projects. You had no spine to stand up against your party’s double-standards in river-sharing disputes. You failed to provide adequate seeds and fertilizers at the right time. Why so angry at them?” he questioned.

“Farmers never knew the green shawl that you wore during elections would eventually become white cloth on their dead dreams and rights. You are a Demon with Cow face. Yediyurapa There is still time left for you to stand with farmers. Repeal the amendments and uphold farmers’ rights. Or, If you are afraid of crony capitalists and your leaders, resign and join farmers in their protest,” said Siddaramaiah.

The Congress staged a protest in the city, KPCC Chief D K Shivakumar, AICC Chief Spokesperson incharge of party affairs in Karnataka Randeep Surjewala and others participated in the agitation.

Bengaluru, Oct 15: Congress candidate Kusuma H filed her nomination for the by-election to the legislative assembly constituency of Rajarajeshwarinagar (RR Nagar) on Wednesday.

The state president of Congress DK Shivakumar and party leader Siddaramaiah joined Kusuma for the nomination.

Byelections have been necessitated after existing MLA N Munirathna for RR Nagar defected to the BJP from the Congress leaving the legislative assembly seat vacant. However, the legislative seat in Sira was vacated following the death of JD (S) MLA B Sathyanarayana on August 5.

Rajarajeshwari Nagar along with Sira in Tumakuru district will go for the by-election on November 3.

The Election Commission has said that the guidelines issued by it in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic are to be followed strictly during the by-polls.

Mangaluru, Oct 8: Main accused in the murder of BJP leader Balachandra Kalagi was shot dead by miscreants at Shantinagar in Sullia police station limits on Thursday.

Police said that the accused Sampath was declared brought dead by Doctors at Sullia government hospital.

Dakshina Kannada Superintendent of Police B M Laxmi Prasad said that Sampath was shot when he stepped out from his house in Shantinagar in the morning. After firing a couple of shots, the assailants speed away in a vehicle.

The assailants have also attacked Sampath sharp weapons. Sources said Sampath died after being hit on the skull. 

"Based on our initial investigation, the assailants were known to Sampath," the officer added.

A year ago, Madikeri police had arrested Sampath for allegedly murdering BJP leader Balachandra Kalagi and made it look like death by accident.
