Comparing Siddaramaiah to Ravana, he said the projects launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi have not reached most villages in the state as Ravana Rajya prevails. “Although, the Centre provided Rs 28 as against the state government's Rs 3 for the Anna Bhagya Yojana(subsidised rice scheme), Siddaramaiah did not have the courtesy to add PM Modi's name to this project,'' he said.
