Karnataka Congress urges BJP govt to implement Mekedatu project

Karnataka Congress President D.K. Shivakumar and Opposition leader Siddaramaiah, addressing people at the National College Grounds on Thursday, urged to implement the Mekedatu project at the earliest. “The ruling BJP has tried lodging 10 FIRs on me and pledged to send me to jail.

They have also lodged complaints on Rajya Sabha Opposition leader Mallikarjun Kharge and AICC General Secretary and Karnataka in-charge of Congress Randeep Singh Surjewala. Mr Chief Minister, we are ready to face these police cases for implementation of the Mekedatu project,” State Congress President D.K. Shivakumar stated.

Addressing the gathering, Shivakumar further stated that “this is not an agitation by the Congress party”. “This struggle is dedicated to people. The police have started serving warrants. Charge sheets have been filed against us. All Congress leaders are ready to go to jail for the good of people,” he said.
