Karnataka CM Ride On Water Sprinkled Road On Drought Hit Areas

A controversy has erupted over two water tankers being emptied to prevent dust from rising from a road ahead of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s programme at Bilagi in the district during his ongoing visit of drought-hit areas. The two tankers containing about 5000 litres of water were emptied before Siddaramaiah was to garland the statue of saint Kanakadasa (1509-1609 AD) as the road where it is located was dusty. The incident drew criticism from state BJP President and former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa. He said when the state is facing drought situation and water shortage, “for the Chief Minister himself to do this for his own purposes…people will mock at it.”
