Hubballi: The city police on Saturday detained as many as 70 Women Congress workers for protesting against Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman outside Hubballi airport.

The women Congress workers, led by KPWCC secretary Deepa Gouri were protesting over the amount of flood relief funds disbursed by the Centre for the state.

The protestors who were seen raising slogans and holding placards against the Union Minister while protesting outside the aerodrome alleged that the Central Government has not disbursed sufficient funds for the flood victims of the state.

The Centre on Friday, October 4 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.
