Praising All-India Congress Committee president M. Mallikarjun Kharge for his persistent efforts to get particular standing to Kalyana Karnataka, Deputy Chief Minister D.Ok. Shivakumar mentioned: “Mr. Kharge gifted the special provision under Article 371(J) to the Kalyana Karnataka region 10 years ago and again today the State government had lit the lamp to empower the families through the Gruha Jyothi programme.”
He was addressing a gathering on the launch of the Gruha Jyothi scheme in Kalaburagi on Saturday.
Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP leaders for criticising the 5 assure schemes of the Congress authorities and for alleging that the schemes will make the State financially bankrupt if applied, Mr. Shivakumar mentioned that the Union authorities had written off lakhs of crores of financial institution loans of huge industrialists. “Won’t that hit the India’s economy or cause bankruptcy?”
He reiterated that individuals throughout the nation have been hailing the assure schemes. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.Ok.Stalin and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee have mentioned that strain is mounting on them to launch free assure schemes of their States.
Accusing the earlier BJP authorities in Karnataka of failing to ship such a pro-people scheme, Mr. Shivakumar mentioned that these 5 assure schemes are geared toward bringing monetary safety and stability.
Energy Minister Ok.J. George mentioned that the Gruha Jyothi scheme was geared toward assuaging the burden of electrical energy bills on the poorer sections of society.
Mr. George mentioned that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi throughout his Bharat Jodo Yatra had linked with folks from all walks of life throughout the nation, and realized their sufferings owing to unemployment and inflation. Therefore the Congress had introduced the 5 ensures and applied the schemes quickly after forming the federal government within the State, Mr. George added.
Mr. George appealed to the folks of Kalyana Karnataka area to vote for the Congress within the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
