Karnataka News: Karnataka Energy, Kannada and Culture Minister V Sunil Kumar on Saturday alleged that the Congress was promoting the activities of the People’s Front of India (PFI) during its rule. Addressing reporters in Udupi, Kumar said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lost 18 of its workers as a result of the Congress promoting PFI. The minister said the raids on PFI and SDPI offices in the state were a natural act after the killing of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader Pravin Netaru.
“Former Chief Minister Siddhamaiah was the father of corruption”
National Investigation Agency (NIA) is investigating against PFI. Kumar alleged that the Congress during its rule had created a state of unrest in the state by withdrawing cases against SDPI and PFI workers. He termed the Congress’s ‘PECM’ campaign as a ‘bundle of lies’. Alleging that former chief minister Siddhamaiah was the “father” of corruption, he said the Congress has no moral right to criticize the BJP-led government.
‘BJP will come back to power in next election’
Minister V Sunil Kumar said if he has any grievance, he should approach the Lokayukta or raise it in the state assembly. About the proposed electricity tariff increase in the state, the minister said that the rate increase is done every year. He said the rate has been fixed due to the rise in coal prices. Responding to a question, the minister said the BJP would come back to power in the state in the next assembly elections and Basavaraj Bommai would lead.
