Karnataka Congress raises COVID and farmer suicide concerns under Bommai administration

The Karnataka Congress has criticised the COVID management during the pandemic of the state government led by the Bharatiya Janata Party and accused it of failing to keep a record of fatalities. The party has also charged that the government does not keep track of farmer suicides.

The Karnataka Congress took aim at Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a tweet on Sunday, claiming that the state’s neighbours do not keep track of the deceased and that there is no documentation of deaths brought on by COVID-19, oxygen shortages, farmer suicides, or unemployment.

As the voting day for the state assembly elections draws near, the BJP and Congress have been engaged in a verbal battle on a number of problems, including corruption.

Mallikarjun Kharge, the president of the Congress, has encouraged the people of Karnataka to come together and support Congress in the upcoming elections. He emphasised the need for unity during the elections and pleaded with the populace for help in building a Congress government that would have a resounding majority.

Kharge asserted that the BJP claims credit for initiatives that were started under the Congress’s administration and charged the party with lying to win support.

Assembly elections in Karnataka will take place on May 10 with the results being announced on May 13.

Political parties are using accusations and denials to try to win over voters as the elections have turned into a battleground. The BJP-led government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has drawn criticism from the Congress, while the opposition party has been accused of corruption and ineptitude during its rule.
