K'taka govt to fall soon, says Srinivas
Udupi, Aug 9 (UNI) Former Karnataka Forests Minister and senior Congress leader K H Srinivas today predicted that the JD(S)-BJP coalition government in the state would fall soon under the weight of the corrution charges levelled against it.
Addressing the district level protest rally organised by the party here against the failures of the state government, he claimed that instead of concentrating on the development of the state, the ruling coalition partners were interested in their own development.
Development activities had come to a stand still in the state ever since the coalition government came to power six months ago, he alleged, adding ''it neither had policy thrust nor a sense of direction.'' He said ''the opposition Congress has virtually no role to play as the coalition partners themselves are playing both the roles of the ruling and opposition, pulling each other's feet.'' Former Ministers B Ramanath Rai and Vasanth V Salian, former MP Vinay Kumar Soraka and former MLA Gopal Bhandary were among others who addressed the gathering.
