Speaking at a press conference held at the KPCC office on Friday, D.K. Shivakumar explained this. An all-party relief committee should be formed to ensure that the people of the flood-affected areas get appropriate relief. It includes representatives of civil society. 5 lakhs to 125 lakhs compensation should be given to them if their houses are damaged in flood affected areas. People have lost everything from furniture to clothes and vehicles due to flood and demanded that they should be given appropriate compensation.
The government should immediately organize a health camp. In addition, a helpline system should be provided. He demanded that the government should consider these demands immediately.
Responding to a question regarding MP Tejashwi Surya’s statement that there was a conspiracy between the media and the Congress behind the rain disaster, he said, “Whatever you have shown on your cameras is the truth. I have not done that the brand is Bangalore. Now in BJP, S.M. Krishna, Mohan Das Pai, Kiran Mazumdar and Sh. 39 percent of the IT tax was paid by businessmen,” he said.
“When Atal Bihari Vajpayee came to Bangalore, he praised that world leaders first come to Bangalore and then go to other cities. We did not say this, Atal Bihari Vajpayee himself said it. Now that dignity is crumbling. We are in favor of enhancing the dignity of Bangalore, not destroying it. “For now, a committee has been formed to listen to the voices of all the people of Bangalore, and we are focusing on protecting our city,” he said.
When asked about Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari coming and talking about traffic congestion during floods, he said, “The Prime Minister came and gave a speech about suburban rail. How much grant they have released for this? Has this project started? They only make slogans so that empty vessels make more noise,” Hariha said.
