CM has to take moral responibility for attack on Lokayukta: Vishwanath
Questioning the validity of Siddaramaiah’s claims on having delivered on promises made in the manifesto, Vishwanath said, “The manifesto clearly stated that the Congress would strengthen the Lokayukta. This is doublespeak.”
Vishwanath also called the moral quotient of the CM into question, asking how he allowed the induction of mining barons into the Congress. “Siddaramaiah had undertaken a padayatra questioning illegal mining in Ballari,” Vishwanath said, also questioning the induction of Ashok Kheny, who is accused of irregularities in the Bengaluru Mysuru Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC).
Vishwanath also criticised for the BJP for its lack of intent on taking the Lokpal Bill forward after assuming power at the Centre. “The BJP has been silent on allegations against Siddaramaiah of special facilities being extended to AIADMK leader Sashikala at Parappana Agrahara in Bengaluru,” he said.
