Participated in the protest organised in Kalburagi demanding the release & implementation of Socio - Economic and Educational survey report prepared by Karnataka State Commission for Backward Classes.

The survey by Karnataka State Commission for Backward Classes is not just a caste census, but also socio-economic & educational survey of all the families in Karnataka.

The survey is free from bias & prejudice. Enumerators were teachers, who were not from any one particular caste or religion.

This survey is not against any caste. This is to ensure Social Justice.

This report will enable governments to formulate programs based on socio-economic & educational realities of every caste.

This was also the objective of the survey.

Few are spreading fake news about the report being leaked & that there are sections in the report which is against few castes.

If the report is leaked, let them prove it by submitting the evidence.

I had told @ucpshetty, who was backward classes welfare minister during Coalition govt, to accept the report. He had even called for a meeting.

@hd_kumaraswamy then threatened to remove him from the cabinet.

Mr. @BSBommai,

You have accepted your incapability to maintain law & order by justifying moral policing by few anti-social elements.

Please resign & save Karnataka!!

Innocent Women are being targeted in the name of Moral policing. The government is trying to protect anti-social elements instead of putting them behind bars.

Appeasing RSS may be necessary to save your position, but you should not stoop to this low, Mr @BSBommai

Mr @BSBommai,

Whenever women are subjected to moral policing henceforth, Can the people of Karnataka assume that you are the true reason for the crime?

It is more criminal to encourage & incite violence, and protect the perpetrators.

.@narendramodi is betraying Kannadigas by not allowing candidates to take IBPS exams in Kannada. Latest notification by IBPS is an example for @BJP4India's anti-Kannada stand.

Central govt should immediately address this & ensure justice to Kannadigas.

IBPS had called for applications to fill more than 3000 vacant clerk positions in about 11 nationalised banks. Out of these, 407 posts are in Karnataka.

Injustice to Kannada will result in huge unemployment by leaving out Kannadigas in the competition.

Candidates were able to write IBPS exams in regional languages before 2014. After @BJP4India came to power, rules were changed to allow English and Hindi only.

We had even written a letter to @narendramodi to protest against this.

.@FinMinIndia @nsitharaman is repeating her strategy to manipulate public opinion by placing false narratives.

Her reasoning for not providing special grants of ₹5,495 Cr to Karnataka is totally unjustifiable.

This is an attempt to hide her mistakes.

15th finance commission had recommended ₹5,495 Cr to Ktaka as 'Special grants' to makeup the shortfall between untied transfers received in the form of tax devolution + revenue deficit grant in 2020-21 vs19-20.

@nsitharaman, being elected from Ktaka, rejected this.

Revised devolution by Central govt in 2020-21 was ₹20,053 Cr as compared budget estimates of ₹28,591 Cr & 15th FC 2020-21 estimates of 31,180 Cr.

This is all the more reason to pay Special Grants to Ktaka

@nsitharaman has confused Special Grants to revenue deficit grants.

A new Game is On in the country.

People of West Bengal have shown @BJP4India its place for their immoral political strategies. BJP has faced humiliation in West Bengal inspite of using money, muscle & power.

.@BJP4India ignored all expert warnings related to #Covid19 & went ahead by pressurising ECI to conduct elections in West Bengal.

It is their selfish motive that led to the rise in #Covid19 cases.

.@narendramodi & @AmitShah should take the responsibility for the loss in West Bengal and also for the death of many innocent people due to #Covid19.

Mr. @PMOIndia @narendramodi,

Virus will not vanish if you repeatedly appear on television without any purpose,

And also you are not an headmaster to teach lessons to CMs,

First show your responsibility by fulfilling the requests placed by State govts.

#Covid19 patients are dying without oxygen everyday in all the States.

When States request @narendramodi to supply oxygen, he asks States to take strict action against hoarders.

Why did he have to increase exports of oxygen when there is shortage in our country?

Dedicated #Covid19 beds in both govt and private hospitals in Bengaluru are 7621,

Occupied beds are 6124,

Available beds are 1487.

But more than 15,000 positive cases are being registered everyday.

Has @CMofKarnataka explained this reality to @PMOIndia?

.@PMOIndia @narendramodi's speech was totally disappointing.

States are devastated due to #Covid19. They need support from the Centre and not empty advices.

#Covid patients are dying due to lack of oxygen, ICU beds, life saving drugs & other Covid essentials.

@narendramodi is only giving advices to people without providing solutions to the problem.

Mr. @narendramodi,
Please do your duties first

.@BJP4Karnataka is expressing that lockdown is inevitable due to rising #Covid19 cases.

We expected @narendramodi to announce relief measures & compensation in case lockdown is announced by States.

@narendramodi has conveniently transferred the burden on States.
