Kalaburagi MP Umesh Jadhav on Sunday accused the Congress leaders of politicising the flood situation in the North Karnataka region and other parts of the State.
Mr. Jadhav addressing a press conference reiterated that the BJP-led government in the State as well as at the Centre stood with the people during tough times like COVID-19. And now, the State government has been extending all assistance to the flood-affected people of North Karnataka.
Mr. Jadhav said that it is not time to get into a blame game.
Instead of criticising, the Congress leaders should join hands with the government and participate in a constructive manner to tackle the flood situation, Mr. Jadhav added.
Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa has decided to conduct an aerial survey of flood-hit areas of North Karnataka districts to assess the damage caused by rain and floods.
The State government has written to the Centre to declare floods in the State as a national disaster, Mr. Jadhav said.
