Actress Ramya adds glamour to Mandya rally 

Mandya: Pooh-poohing the claims of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that it is a ‘Double engine Government,’ top Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra termed the BJP as a ‘Double loot Government’ as it has looted the people of the State.

Addressing a Congress poll rally at Government Women’s College grounds in Mandya on Tuesday, Priyanka alleged that the BJP, which failed to get a majority in the 2018 polls, formed the Government in 2019 after poaching MLAs from the Congress and JD(S), spending huge sum of money.

Charging the State BJP Government of being a 40 percent commission Government, she said that the people are fed up with the BJP’s rampant corruption and maladministration.

Claiming that rising infla-tion and soaring prices of essential commodities coupled with unemployment and unde-remployment have hit the common man very hard, she said that PM Modi is silent on burning issues even as he harps on emotional and non issues.

“The BJP Government has levied GST on almost everything, which is a huge burden to the common man. Even the agriculture sector is not spared of GST and the farmers are very much angry with the present dispensation. The State has been reeling under the effect of GST. The Congress, if voted to power, will rectify the wrongs in the tax system and also take measures to ease unemployment,” she said while highlighting the programmes of the Congress for alleviating the problems of the people.

Urging the people to throw out the corrupt BJP regime, which had looted more than Rs.1.5 lakh crore in its four years of rule, she appealed the electorate to elect Mandya Congress candidate Ravikumar (Ganiga Ravi) and other party candidates of the district.
