Anti-conversion bill is the brainchild of @RSSorg.

RSS followers had written a petition in 2009 to the law commission to draft anti-conversion bill when @BSYBJP was CM.

Our govt had rejected that draft bill. Now @BJP4Karnataka has given life to it.

#AntiConversionBill The then Social Welfare minister H Anjaneya had written a note on the draft, which was forwarded by the law commission, that it is not needed to discuss in the cabinet.

It was never discussed during @INCKarnataka govt.

I never expected such loose comments from you, Mr @BSBommai, that too as @CMofKarnataka.

In a desperate attempt to please your @RSSorg masters, you're deviating from facts & logic.

Let me clear your baseless allegations again!! .@BJP4Karnataka had alleged that 24 Hindus were killed in communal violences during 2013-18. It is not 24 but actually 45 if we include both Hindus & Muslims.

Our party had released facts about those deaths. Read it and introspect your commitment to social harmony.

Mr. @BSBommai,

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

Please resign & save Karnataka!!

#MoralPolicing 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

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.

#SocialJustice 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.

.@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.

#IBPSMosa 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.

.@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.

#BJPExposed 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.

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.

#ElectionResults .@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.

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.

PMwithCMs #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?

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

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

#PMSpeaks #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

.@JCMBJP has perfectly echoed what @INCKarnataka had been saying since last 7 yrs. We are also of the same opinion that @BJP4India is threatening the federal structure of our Country.

Centre is encroaching upon the Constitutional rights of States.

1/6… .@BJP4India is forcefully directing States to amend laws that falls under State list & concurrent list. This is infringement upon the States' interest & rights.

This is more concerning in the States with @BJP4India govt as evident in Karnataka.

The police dept & @BJP4Karnataka govt are responsible for pledging the pride of Karnataka in front of the whole country in the CD case.

It is shameful that police could not trace the CD victim even after 20 days.

#RameshJarkiholiCDCase The CD case is turing into a political blame game with new developments each day. It can reach logical conclusion only when the victim reaches out to police & give her version.

According to @DHFWKA, number of #Covid19 deaths till Dec 2020 is 12,090.

According to Planning & Statistical dept, it is 22,320 till Dec 2020.

@CMofKarnataka, @mla_sudhakar,
Which of the above data is true?

#coronavirus .@BJP4Karnataka's inefficiency, corruption & lies are the reasons for the rise in #Covid19 cases in Karnataka.

People of Karnataka are facing the crisis due to mistakes of the shameless @BJP4Karnataka government.

There is an ongoing discussion about Free Trade Agreement under RCEP for a long time but now it has gained a lot of traction. Almost 27 meetings have happened which will culminate on November 4, 2019. 16 countries, including ASEAN countries are part of this.
#WeOpposeRCEP FTA, which the govt is about to sign, will cause long standing negative impact on domestic Agri, Animal husbandry & pharma sectors. India has a large consumption market due to its population, production & innovation, which other countries want to take advantage.

ಕೋಮುವಾದಿ ಬಿಜೆಪಿ ಜಾತ್ಯತೀತ ಶಕ್ತಿಗಳನ್ನು ನಾಶ ಮಾಡಲು ಹೊರಟಿರುವಾಗ ಆ ಪಕ್ಷವನ್ನು ಜಾತ್ಯತೀತ ಶಕ್ತಿಗಳೆಲ್ಲ ಒಗ್ಗಟ್ಟಿನಿಂದ ಎದುರಿಸಬೇಕು ಎನ್ನುವುದು ನನ್ನ ನಿಲುವು. ಆದರೆ ಜಾತ್ಯತೀತರೆಂದು ಹೇಳಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವವರು ಪರೋಕ್ಷವಾಗಿ ಕೋಮುವಾದಿ ಶಕ್ತಿಗಳಿಗೆ ನೆರವಾಗುತ್ತಿರುವಾಗ ಅದನ್ನು ಕೂಡಾ ನಾವು ಖಂಡಿಸಬೇಕಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.
#MyPressConference ನನ್ನ ವಿರುದ್ಧದ ಆರೋಪಗಳಿಂದ ಯಾವ ಪಕ್ಷಕ್ಕೆ ಖುಷಿಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ಎಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ಗೊತ್ತು. ಬಿಜೆಪಿ ತನ್ನ ವಿರೋಧಿಗಳನ್ನು ಹತ್ತಿಕ್ಕಲು ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಗಳನ್ನು ಕಂಡು ದೇವೇಗೌಡರು ಹೆದರಿರುವಂತೆ ಕಾಣಿಸುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಇದಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಅವರನ್ನು ಖುಷಿಪಡಿಸಲು ನನ್ನ ಮೇಲೆ ಆಧಾರರಹಿತ ಆರೋಪ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

Really! This is rich coming from the you Mr. Prime Minister. I have spoken a lot about what we have done for the farmers. But I will repeat it in this thread. I will also talk about your insensitivity to farmers. 1/6 1 We are the only state that gives farm loans at zero % interest rate
2 We have waived Rs 8165 Cr. farm loans taken from cooperative societies. 22.50 lakh farmers benefited
3 We spend Rs 8000 Cr every year to give free assured power (7Hrs) to farmers

Why did Congress deprive people of Karnataka the 14th FC funds? Is that the question? The ignorance displayed by the BJP & it’s President the #ShahOfLies is deliberate.

I have explained this several times but the BJP keeps repeating the lie. For truth please follow the thread👇 Devolution of central funds to states is a constitutional duty of the center & the funds are a right of all states. Finance Commissions decide formula for fund sharing & the states get the funds. It is not a gift of UPA or NDA. This has been the practice since 1950.
