BJP must clinch 2018 poll to enjoy Centre’s programs: Chouhan

It is compulsory for the BJP to come power in Karnataka in the 2018 Assembly elections in April-May if the state has to benefit from the Centre’s various welfare programs, said Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

Addressing BJP’s Parivartana rally in Haveri, on Sunday, Chouhan alleged that Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah was projecting Central government’s schemes started by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as his own. “This is the most corrupt state in the country,” Chouhan alleged.

Taunting Chief Minister Siddaramaiah by alluding to the Mahadayi river water dispute, Chouhan said, “There is no water for the Congress in the country. From where will they (Congress) get water for Karnataka?”

The MP CM said that Siddaramaiah was ruining the name of Karnataka in India by absenting himself at the NITI Aayog meetings.

“The Congress government is encouraging the sand mafia by importing sand from Malaysia and exporting its own,” Chouhan alleged.
