The two Opposition parties — the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) — were the target of attack by Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Wednesday. He said the two parties were turning restless as the people were responding well to the governance of the Bharatiya Janata Party, the proof of which was that the party had won all the elections in the State since the May 2008 Legislative Assembly elections.
Mr. Yeddyurappa, after holding discussions with senior Ministers, released a booklet ‘Clarity in Stand — Performance Aplenty' as a response to the release of a booklet against his administration brought out by the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee. Most of the Cabinet Ministers, including Minister for Higher Education V.S. Acharya, Minister for Law S. Suresh Kumar, Minister for Forests C.H. Vijayashankar and Minister for Water Resources Basavaraj Bommai, attended the programme.
Referring to the Congress booklet, the Chief Minister said “it was portrayed as though the Karnataka Government is depending upon Central grants for its plan expenditure, and has failed in mobilising resources. The fact is that the State's share forms a part and parcel of the centrally sponsored schemes. Further, the Central grants are nothing but a portion of the taxes collected by the Centre from the States. It is well known that the devolution of funds from the Centre to the States is an integral part of the federal structure, and the people of the State are also aware that the Union Government, headed by whichever party, invariably has been formulating centrally sponsored schemes besides providing financial assistance to the States. Hence the funds received by the State are not a charity from the Centre”.
