Karnataka budget: Did Kumaraswamy government ignore Rural Development and Panchyat Raj?

he recent allocation of funds for Ministry of Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) stood at Rs 14,899 crore for Financial Year 2019-2020 with 3.11 per cent increase from the previous budget.

However, in the last six financial years the average growth of allocation of funds for the RDPR ministry has been around 16 per cent. The PWD ministry held by Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy's brother, HD Revanna, was allocated an increase of funds by 13.2 per cent in the state budget presented on February 9.
Sources said that RDPR ministry proposed a pet project called Mukhyamantri Gram Sampark Yojana (MGSY), where village roads would be improved and maintained.
At present, over 50,000 km of village roads come under RDPR of which the ministry planned to bring 20,000 to 25,000 km under the MGSY. Under this scheme, the ministry would locate 'priority village roads' - which would connect villages to commercial hub, hospitals, towns, schools or any other important centre. However, the chief minister did not make any announcement about this in the budget.
