Bengaluru, Jan 18 As Union Home Minister Amit Shah arrived in Karnataka, Congress leader Siddaramaiah on Saturday sought to know why he doesn’t visit the flood-hit areas and assess if funds provided by the Centre were enough, before “brainwashing” people to accept his “divisive policies”.
In a series of tweets the Leader of Opposition also sought an “adequate” probe into violent anti-CAA protests in Mangaluru last month during which two people were killed, and pointed out that people have cried foul about the incident.
“Mr @AmitShah, Before investing time to brainwash people to accept your divisive policies, Why don’t you visit flood affected areas again & assess if the Central govt funds are sufficient or not? #AnswerMadiShah,” Siddaramaiah tweeted.
“Mr. @AmitShah, @BSYBJP has claimed loss of over Rs 35,000 due to floods but your aid is just Rs 1,870 Cr.
When are you planning to give the remaining? Wil there be any funds left after the implementation of CAA, NPR & NRC? #AnswerMadiShah” he said in another tweet.
Shah, who arrived in the city will be addressing a public meeting on Citizenship Amendment Act, under BJP’s nationwide Jan Jargaran Abhiyan, at Hubballi this evening.
