Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who attended the new Karnataka government’s swearing-in ceremony on Saturday, said that all five promises made during the campaign “will become law” after the first cabinet meeting, which will take place soon.
Siddaramaiah, a Congress veteran, was sworn in as Karnataka’s Chief Minister for the second time today, and DK Shivakumar was sworn in as his Deputy. In the new Karnataka Cabinet, eight MLAs took the oath of office. At the swearing-in ceremony, Governor Thaawarchand Gehlot administered the oath of office and secrecy to them at Bengaluru’s packed Kanteerava Stadium.
Addressing on the occasion which was also attended by various opposition leaders, Rahul Gandhi said, “We made 5 promises to you. I had said we don’t make false promises. We do what we say. In 1-2 hours, the first cabinet meeting of the Karnataka government will happen and in that meeting these 5 promises will become law.”
“We will give you a clean, non-corrupt government,” he added.
Notbly, the Congress manifesto lists five main guarantees. “Gruha Jyoti: 200 units of free power to all households, Gruha Lakshmi: Rs 2,000 monthly assistance to the woman head of every family, Anna Bhagya: 10 kg of rice free to every member of a BPL household; Yuva Nidhi scheme: diploma holders will get an allowance of Rs 1,500 per month for two years, while graduates will receive Rs 3,000 per month and Shakti: Free bus rides for all women in the state”.
Rahul Gandhi, in his address, further shed light on the grand old party’s win in the Karnataka assembly elections and said that party won because it stood with the poor, Dalits, and Adivasis, backwards.
“Nafrat ko mitaya, Mohabbat jeeti,” said Rahul Gandhi after the swearing-in ceremony of the newly-elected Karnataka Government.
He said that Congress had truth while the BJP had money which was defeated by the people of the state.
“After Congress’s victory, many things were written as to how Congress won this election, different analyses were done but I want to say that Congress won because we stood with the poor, Dalits, and Adivasis, backwards. We had the truth and poor people. BJP had money, police and everything but the people of Karnataka defeated all their powers,” said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
