Centre discriminating Karnataka in drought relief fund: Revanna

Dharwad: Public works division minister H D Revanna accused the Centre of doling out step-motherly remedy to Karnataka while freeing drought-relief budget.

Speaking to journalists after chairing a assessment assembly of PWD here on Tuesday, informed that 160 taluks within the state are drought hit. “There is scarcity of ingesting water, fodder and employment underneath day-to-day wages. The state government submitted a drought record searching for Rs 2,500 crore from the Centre, but the Centre released Rs 900 crore,” Revanna stated.

The minister stated that this isn't the case in BJP-ruled Maharashtra which got Rs four,000 for drought management. “The BJP leaders within the state have failed to mount force on their central leaders to get more budget released,” he stated.

Revanna added that the Centre is delaying liberate of Rs 2,000 crore underneath MGNREGA and Rs 2,000 for food grain procurement. “Even after repeated appeals, the Centre has no longer responded positively,” he stated.

Revanna stated that the State Budget can be pro-farmers. He added that the coalition government is solid and all the JD(S) and Congress MLAs are united.
