The opposition Congress and JD(S) have questioned the ruling BJP in Karnataka on Prime Minister Narendra Modi not addressing the issue of flood relief during a weekend visit to Bengaluru.

“Despite coming to Bengaluru, the BJP was unable to take the PM to flood-affected parts of the state… The Chief Minister’s position is so weak that he is unfortunately unable to ask for funds from the Centre…” former CM H D Kumaraswamy said.

“The BJP had promised that the PM will review the flood situation… Nothing was discussed, nor any package announced,’’ state Congress president Dinesh Gundu Rao said.
