Union Home Minister inaugurates Gorata Shaheed Smarak & Sardar Patel Memorial in Karnataka

Union Home and Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah inaugurated the Gorata Shaheed Smarak & Sardar Patel Memorial in Bidar and many development projects in Raichur, Karnataka on 26 March, 2023 and addressed a huge public meeting.

Shri Amit Shah unfurled the 103 ft high National Flag at Gorata village in Bidar in Karnataka in the memory of the brave martyrs who fought valiantly against the tyranny of Nizams. He also inaugurated the Gorata Shaheed Smarak and Sardar Patel Memorial.

Addressing the gathering Shri Shah said in the same Gorata village the rampaging army of Nizam, who killed and tortured innocent people, had killed hundreds of patriotic people for hoisting the two and half feet high Tricolour. On the same holy land we have today hoisted 103 feet high Tricolour. On the same land where the Nizam had martyred hundreds of patriots, we have now inaugurated memorials in respect, honour and remembrance of these great martyrs.

It gives me great pleasure and happiness to unveil these memorials because I as the then Bharatiya Janata Party President has done the bhoomi-poojan of these memorials and ‘Shaheed Smarak’ on September 17, 2014. Immediately after the formation of the Bharatiya Janata Party government in the state again we will build a massive ‘Smriti Sthan’ and start a sound and light show by spending over Rs 50 crores, he said.

The then Congress party government in Karnataka had started the minority reservation of four per cent to make its vote bank happy. But the Bharatiya Janata Party government ended it and instead started two per cent reservation for Vokkaliga and two per cent reservation for Shaiv and Lingayat.

Our government has also increased the SC reservation to 17 per cent.

The Congress party gave reservation to minorities due to its policy of appeasement. But by giving reservation to Vokkaliga and Lingayat communities we have done their welfare and ensured their upliftment, and we have done this because we do not believe in politics of appeasement.

The Bharatiya Janata Party under the leadership of our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi believes in ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabha Prayas’ , he said.

The Congress party can never do any good for Karnataka.

The Congress party just uses Karnataka as an ATM so that it can send money to Delhi.

The Congress party and the JDS are the same face of a coin which believes and practices corruption, nepotism and appeasement politics.

Wherever the Congress party has run its government, it has done massive corruption.

Shri Yeddyurappa allocated a budget of Rs 3000 crores for the development and growth of Kalyan Karnataka. And now in the current budget Chief Minister Shri Basavraj Bommai has increased this budget to Rs 5000 crores. This shows the commitment and dedication of the Bharatiya Janata Party government for the development and progress of the region.

The Congress party is getting decimated and is on perpetual decline. Recently assembly elections were held in Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya. The NDA government was formed in these three states. And in these states the Congress party could not win more than 5 seats. This is the trend in the country. We have to make the ‘Lotus’ bloom in Bidar and Raichur also.
