Mangaluru: MLC and parliamentary secretary to chief minister Ivan D’Souza has alleged that the BJP has completely failed to function as an Opposition party in the state.
“Instead of providing suggestions to the coalition government on improving its governance and welfare schemes, the Opposition leaders are engaged in making false allegations against the state government,” said Ivan.
“Shobha Karandlaje is unhappy as she could not get ministerial berth. So she is expressing her displeasure by making baseless allegations against the coalition government and has termed the government’s decision to expand the Cabinet as the final nail in the coffin,” said the MLC.
