Evening Today - - FRONT PAGE -

Ben­galuru: BJP MLA CT Ravi on Wednesday, De­cem­ber 26 lashed out at the Kar­nataka govern­ment by stat­ing that it has failed to uti­lize the funds sent by the cen­tral govern­ment for the Smart City project and also ques­tioned the rea­son be­hind it. In the press state­ment re­leased by BJP lead­ers, C T Ravi, and A H Anand, they men­tioned that out of the Rs 886 crores re­leased by the cen­tral govern­ment to­wards the Smart City project the state govern­ment has used only Rs 86.02 crores and this clearly shows the neg­li­gence of the state govern­ment.

The duo praised the Cen­tral govern­ment by say­ing the prime min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi with­out show­ing any dis­crim­i­na­tion has re­leased fi­nan­cial grants for all the projects of the state, in spite of it the state govern­ment is sim­ply ac­cus­ing the cen­tral govern­ment. They also ques­tioned why the state is not uti­liz­ing the funds granted by the cen­tral govern­ment to seven large cities of the state to de­velop fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture.
