Udupi, Jan 12: BJP vice-president and former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa on Tuesday January 12 accused the state government of misusing union government's funds. Speaking at a press meet in Udupi, Yeddyurappa said, "Though there was acute drought situation in nine states, the union government still gave preference to Congress-ruled Karnataka in releasing relief funds of Rs 1,540 crore, on the request of state BJP leaders. However the funds have been misused. Rural development minister H K Patil has admitted that Rs 3,600 crore released by the union government for the state has been misused. Still, no action has been taken against the officials".

"As many as 136 taluks in Karnataka are facing drought and 950 farmers have committed suicide. The chief minister is claiming that the union government is not releasing relief funds. However, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the state last week, we requested him to provide drought relief of Rs 1,540 crore, and it was done within 48 hours and we were informed about it over the phone. Hence, the PM should not be targeted over this and I strongly condemn it," he added.

Blaming the state government for law and order being completely deteriorated in the state, he said that there has been increase in incidents of crime across the state. He also claimed that Congress was trying to postpone the zilla panchayat and taluk panchayat elections as it fears losing.

Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje, district BJP president Tingale Vikramarjuna Hegde and others were present.
