Ministers not doing enough, Karnataka Cong faces dissent

Bangalore, Nov 27: The Congress in Karnataka faced internal dissent on Wednesday with around 30 members of the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) accusing the ministers of the ruling party of doing little to tackle the Narendra Modi wave which is sweeping the state at the moment.

The CLP members were dissatisfied with the ministers alleged inertia even six months ahead of the prestigious Lok Sabha elections and were set to write to the party high command about this.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was also facing the heat over the Shaadi Bhagya scheme, whereby the government pays an amount of Rs 50,000 as marriage aid to poor Muslim girls. While one section in the Congress, in the wake of the protest of Karnataka Janatha Paksh leader and former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, feels that the scheme should include all communities, the Muslim leaders have sought an increase in the amount.
