Vote Wisely, 40% Commission Claimed Lives: Karnataka State Contractors Association Appeals To Voters

The KSCA President D Kempanna had earlier written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging that contractors had to shell out 40 per cent commission in public projects, a charge which the Congress had made it a key campaign issue to target the ruling BJP in Karnataka.

A day ahead of the polling, the Karnataka State Contractors Association (KSCA) has written a letter alleging that the corruption in the state has reached “frightening levels,” and urged people to cast their votes in “accordance with their conscience.”

Voting for 224-member Legislative Assembly begins today. A total of 5,31,33,054 electors are eligible to cast their votes in 58,545 polling stations across the state. As many as 2,615 candidates are in the fray, including 2,430 male, 184 female and one from the third gender. 

Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh shared the letter on his Twitter handle and said, "The Karnataka State Contractors Association has written another letter - this time to the voters. PM Modi never replied to their pleas against the BJP's 40% Commission government. Tomorrow the people of Karnataka will reply for him.”
