Gulbarga, Sep 24 (UNI) Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa today alleged that the Union Government was showing stepmotherly attitude towards the state in extending financial assistance.
Addressing an election campaign here, the Deputy Chief Minister alleged that despite submitting three representatives to the centre for release of funds for flood relief works, the state had not received any response from the centre.
