Bengaluru: Releasing a Bengaluru-specific chargesheet against the Congress government, Union minister Prakash Javadekar on Thursday accused the ministry led by CM Siddaramaiah of turning the tech hub into a “garbage and crime city”, and misuse of central funds released for various schemes.
He told the media here “The charge sheet is an eye opener. A decent city has been converted into a crime city. Now it's 'goonda raaj' when we see the happenings in the last one month. Goondas are attacking police, robbing their houses and snatching their revolvers in Bengaluru.Once considered as the safest city for women, Bengaluru has become the most unsafe city today due to increasing cases of rape, abduction and chain snatching. This is the transformation done by the Congress under Siddaramaiah,” he added. He accused the state government of not putting to proper use funds released for Prime Minister Awas Yojana and other central schemes. Like the distress in rural Karnataka, distress was witnessed in urban pockets, in particular Bengaluru, with the local administration failing to improve the quality of life of people of Bengaluru, owing to corruption and maladministration. The latest project involving white topping of roads could be termed the mother of all scams with the government taking it up for pocking bribes ahead of forthcoming elections to the Assembly.
