The Karnataka government is set to launch the Gruha Lakshmi scheme on Wednesday in Mysuru and the beneficiaries are going …

What is the in this Video

Uh to something that seems to be creeping in in both main political formations as it were both in nda-led States as well as of course in opposition-led States in Karnataka today there was a big Mega welfare Push by the Karnataka government launching what they call the Grier Lakshmi scheme providing

Monthly financial assistance of 2000 Rupees to over one crore women heads of families in the state now this welfare scheme it was launched by Congress Chief Malik Congress MP Rahul Gandhi was there chief minister Sidra Maya who’s also there and it was started in his home District of mysuru addressing the event

Rahu Gandhi claimed that the five guarantees promised by the Congress in Karnataka will be implemented across India very soon adding that the party has fulfilled its welfare agenda the cost to the exchequer of just griha Lakshmi will be a whopping 32 000 crores and that has prompted the BJP to hit

Back at the state government claiming that the Congress passed he is derailing the economy of the state and hoodwinking the people of Karnataka Foreign All of them on their phone only they will get the message that their application number their ID number and the sanction all the banks will inform them that you arrive to your account current benefit transfer has happened they are not very clear how many applications have come how many they

Have rejected how many they accepted so ultimately they have said that for everybody JPL people and everybody except income tax with everybody so let us see whether they’ll give to everyone all right so the cost to the exchequer for griha Lakshmi would be 32 000 crore rupees remember karnataka’s finances are

Not exactly in a great shape right now but beyond Grier Lakshmi what are these other schemes and what is the tent to the exchecker as a result of it first you have of course this free Power business 200 units of free Power every month that will be given the problem is

Karnataka has just recently seen power bill hikes sometimes to the tune of 60 to 80 percent we’ve also seen the rollout of Lakshmi which is 2000 Rupees to the heads the women heads of families uh in the state initially it was supposed to be all then it became BPL

Then it became people who were not paying income tax uh so on and so forth no earning uh a car no owning other fancy items in the household Etc then there is the under bhagya scheme which is 10 kgs free rice to BPL families again the state government is dealing

Right now with a massive shortage of rice Supply the juvenidi scheme which is 1 Rupees to people who are unemployed youth who are unemployed diploma and degree holders but again the policy has not been rolled out now they’re saying it is only for locals and finally there

Is the Shakti scheme for free travel for women in buses but immediately what has happened as a result is there is massive overcrowding of government-run buses now let me now bring in our guest Dr Narendra rangappa spokesperson of the Karnataka BJP lavanya Bilal a spokesperson of the Karnataka Congress

Lakshmi while it’s a it’s a great scheme on paper Etc it is going to offset the cost to the tune of 30 000 crore Rupees to the exchequer and Karnataka right now given its current finances is not in a position to meet that kind of a huge uh

Demand in terms of 30 000 crores excess funds where are they going to find this from and BJP is also saying you know you started with all women then you said income tax assesses will not be given if you own a four-wheeler you will not be

Given so on and so forth you are only diluting one of your fundamental five guarantees as you were promising them good evening zafka I was actually uh watching all the points that you were making uh some of them were very Justified you were asking about uh well

When the funds come for from for the exchecker I’m sure the finance experts were involved in the entire process do have an answer for this as to where do we get this funds from first of all I think the central government should be a product or a product in returning the

GST funds that is owed to the state and our bgp MPS 26 of them need to work towards that secondly we are also talking about overcrowding in the buses definitely there is overcrowding in the buses third of course the BJP uh raises a human cry about all of this about how

Uh 10 kilos of rides as arrived that we are doing in Karnataka welfare schemes when given by the Congress States or the Congress government to delivery but while welfare schemes zaka is Promised by the bjp’s welfare schemes they were also talking about one more Point um you

Made I think it was about the youth for the Youth uh one thousand rupees for the unemployed youth yeah I think it is understood Jacob in a state formed frames certain kind of welfare schemes it is meant for the citizens of that state and in Karnataka we have this uh

Report that we rely on which also says I forget the expert who’s not head in this committee it says um I think it is if you have been residing in carnatic for the last 10 years you are considered as a Karnataka or if you have studied kannada in your

High school you’re considered as a Connecticut right that’s another thing and when we are talking about rice let me make it very clear as of today uh zaka our Indian government very proudly is selling a rise to Far Far East States right forest and countries which is what

Is very sad is the century had promised to sell rise to Karnataka and took back those words I mean are you not willing to feed your own citizens why are you unwilling to feed Indians but you are willing to feed other countries which is a good cause is our

No doubt about it just one point of correction the central government as of last week has imposed a ban on rice exports so anyway we’ll see how that plays out but let me ask Narendra I think one of the contentions Congress and other opposition parties are saying

Is you know you make a big deal of this ravdy culture rivalry culture freebies Etc but just recently your uh party and your chief minister in madhya Pradesh Mr shivraj Singh Chauhan who had announced this loudly behana scheme first it was thousand rupees now he’s increased due

To 1250 rupees and I believe very soon before the election it’ll be increased to 1500 rupees how is that different from graha Lakshmi if ladli bana is okay in madhya Pradesh why is Lakshmi bad in Karnataka in Karnataka we never said that our only contention is why is that you

Are discriminating between these lady members of the family why only one person give it to all the ladies why should you not give you you are making Claws and subclasses those who are paying income tax will not get those who are having Brothers will not get those who arriving sisters will

Not get by putting sub Clauses you are causing a distress in the family our contention is you have to give Innovative the house I have a very basic question do you believe does the BJP in Karnataka believe grihar Lakshmi is a ravdy or not simple question

Should reach every lady in the house in Karnataka that is our contention you can’t select cherry pick and give to some people and cause uh understand the families that is what has happened Lakshmi okay what about the other schemes the five guarantees are they Rarity or no

That this government is a government of hundred percent lies and Century of blunders and zero percent development this is the government that has reduced uh funding for Cooperative Bank by 358 agriculture 891 percent reduce social welfare sanctions crores reduced irrigation sanctioned by 4800 crores rdpr 7th 270 clubs is

Reduced yes yeah has been 11 000 crores of s money has been stolen by this government for other purpose and they have increased the taxes and everything standard magic taxes have increased property taxes have increased Cavalry issues presented freedom of common man is cattled this is the

Undertake almond and what are they okay the biggest point of contention has been a you know prices have increased in the last three months and two this whole money is being diverted from other uh heads other budgetary heads most prominently this scst sub budget that uh they’re claiming that has been moved 11

000 crores has been moved from scst sub budget to fund some of your freebies or to fund some of your guarantees pretty rich coming from the BJP which diverted the SC funds extensively in their four and a half years of governance in Karnataka I do not have

The facts and figures with me right now but it was a scam as well where multiple SC departments uh funds without facts and evidence again I think that’s a fair point if you have the if you have the specific figures of of the allegation that you’re

Making then please go ahead and make it yeah absolutely it is on record it is on news it has been on debates um everybody knows of this instance where 800 uh eight girls in our SC not given food because the BJP government had diverted the funds meant for paying their gases

Our Manifesto promises it is not happened is the leader okay and if you do not put for us that we will punish you is this why Karnataka does not have a leader of opposition or is it because they do not have a capability That Congress is Raising it’s been over 100 days you still have not been able to find a leader of opposition sir for last four years the people have even denied them that fact so what are they making a contention about um for joining us uh let’s see how this

Story plays out in the run up to of course uh the all-important looks about elections Karnataka is a big State 28 seats BJP had windfall gains both in 2014 as well as in 2019 whether they’ll be able to repeat that in 2024 we’ll see but
