In the times of conflict with Congress, Karnataka CM, H D Kumaraswamy Wednesday expressed hope that his government would complete its five-year term with the support and blessings of the alliance partner and others.
In a message for the eve of completion of one year in office, he expressed happiness over launching various welfare programmers, including the pro-farmer measures such as the crop loan waiver. In his message, he said, "I thank the people of the state, my cabinet colleagues, my father, guide and former PM H D Deve Gowda, Congress president Rahul Gandhi, K C Venugopal (AICC general secretary), Siddaramaiah (CLP leader), all public representatives and officials. May this government continue with your blessings and support for the next four years.”
He claimed that the crop loan waiver had benefited 15.5 lakh farmers and was also implemented with "utmost transparency". He also added that in the present fiscal, all eligible farmers would benefit from the scheme.
He also mentioned about measures taken by his government in the previous year to improve various other sectors.
He said the pro-people programmes launched by Congress in its previous term were being continued under the coalition regime.
Both parties had come into an alliance and came to power after elections last year.
