Mysuru city (district) BJP president Dr B H Manjunath said that Siddaramaiah's budget was aimed at garnering votes for elections as it was full of appeasement. The budget has no development programmes for farmers. We had expected that the chief minister would announce a loan waiver but the budget has left farmers in dire straits. Hebbal going to be connected with Bannarghatta Road Via JP Nagar, Magari Road, Nayandahalli, Peenya I Phase Layout, BEL Circle and Bhadrappa Layout. Instead of waiving the debt, the CM has made a decision to provide farmers with more loans and to make them forever borrowers.

Presenting the 2017-18 Budget, Siddarmaiah said the GSDP declined to 6.9 per cent in fiscal 2016-17 from 7.3 per cent in fiscal 2015-16, as farm sector grew 1.5 per cent, industry 2.2 per cent as against 4.9 per cent and services 8.5 per cent as against 10.4 per cent a year ago.
