Rs 3000 cr has been sent to beneficiary accounts through RTGS: Nalin

Bengaluru: BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel informed that the state government has released Rs 3,000 crores and has also sent money to the beneficiary accounts through RTGS.

Addressing presspersons on Saturday at party office he said that the Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa-led government has released funds towards flood relief and rehabilitation in the affected area.

Nalin also slammed the previous Congress-JDS government for not doing enough for the flood and drought-hit victims while in power.

He further added, “Earlier, the then Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had told people that he would only release funds in accordance with the NDRF guidelines. But, CM BS Yeddyurappa has released the funds already. The chief minister has also visited flood-affected areas.”

The statement from the BJP leader came a day after the Centre approved additional financial assistance of Rs Rs 1,200 crore to the state for the damages caused by the rains and floods.

As many as 103 taluks in 22 districts were affected due to floods in August, in which over 80 people were killed. Around seven lakh people were shifted to safe areas and thousands of houses were damaged.

BJP governments at both Centre and the state have been facing criticism from the opposition Congress and JDS regarding the ‘delay’ in the grant of central funds despite Home Minister Amit Shah, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman and inter-ministerial central team visiting the affected region. The opposition parties have accused Modi government of showing ‘apathy’ towards Karnataka, despite state sending 25 BJP MPs.
