“Go back Modi’: Mangaluru Congress holds protest

Congress workers rallied against the scheduled visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing the central government of neglecting Karnataka’s needs by non-release of financial assistance from the central government.

The protest, held on Saturday, was marked by chants of “Go back Modi” as the protestors voiced their grievances over what they perceive as the government’s failure to provide adequate relief aid for floods, droughts, and other crises plaguing the state.

Ivan D’Souza, a former member of the Legislative Council, lambasted the Modi administration for allegedly withholding tax revenues owed to Karnataka, resulting in a staggering loss of Rs 45,000 crore in state revenue.

D’Souza further criticized Modi’s timing, questioning the Prime Minister’s motives for visiting the state amidst ongoing challenges such as droughts and other pressing issues. He asserted that Modi’s visit appeared to be politically motivated rather than driven by genuine concern for the welfare of Karnataka’s citizens.

Harish Kumar, the DK District Congress President, and Manjunath Bhandary, a Member of the Legislative Council, joined D’Souza in denouncing Modi’s visit, underscoring the collective discontent among Congress leaders and supporters over perceived governmental negligence and financial impropriety.
