Chittapur MLA Priyank Kharge has lashed out at the state government for neglecting the Kalyan-Karnataka region and alleged that the state government has not released fund, despite the region suffered damage to crops, roads and infra due to heavy rains.

He took to micro blogging site Koo and wrote, ” The region too has received heavy rains & farmers have lost their crops, heavy damage to roads & infra, yet we don’t get a single ₹. The BJP MLAs of KK remain mute spectators to this neglect,” he said.


Former ministers M B Patil and Eshwar Khandre took exception saying Vijayapura, Bidar, Kalaburagi and Yadgir had been left out.

Responding to their allegation, the chief minister’s office (CMO) specified that the release of Rs 200 crore was based on availability of funds.

In a series of allegation, MB Patil said heavy rains had affected several people in Vijayapura. “Shockingly, state Govt (sic) has not announced any compensation to Vijayapura,” he said. Threatening to stage a protest, Patil asked the government to release compensation for Vijayapura.

“The state government appears to be dead for the people of the district leaving them in a feeling of orphaned.,” he said.

Khandre, , said distribution of flood relief funds showed the BJP government’s “step-motherly treatment” towards the Kalyana Karnataka region.  “Due to incessant rains in Bidar and Kalaburagi, several monsoon crops, such as tur, soyabean, urad and others have been completely destroyed,” Khandre said, demanding compensation of Rs 50,000 per hectare to farmers of Bidar and Kalaburagi.
