Bengaluru, Aug 13 (PTI) Senior Congress leader Priyank Kharge has dubbed the BJP led dispensation in Karnataka as "bribe-couch government’, alleging that no one can land a job without paying bribe.The former minister"s statement drew sharp criticism from the saffron party, which asked Kharge to keep his house in order first.At a press conference on Friday, Kharge said, “In this government, you have to shell out money to get a government job. In the past, two ministers of this government have resigned.” He was referring to Ramesh Jarkiholi"s resignation as Water Resources Minister over his alleged involvement in a sex-for-job scandal last year. Another BJP MLA K S Eshwarappa too resigned as minister after a civil contractor died by suicide alleging that the former had demanded 40 per cent commission for execution of a public work.“If a woman from Karnataka wants a job, she will have to get on to the couch (Mancha) and men can land a job only by paying a bribe (Lancha in Kannada),” Kharge, who is son of Congress stalwart Mallikarjun Kharge, alleged."This government has become a "Lancha-Mancha Sarkara" (bribe and couch government)." Kharge also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of "failing" to keep up his promise of creating two crore jobs annually.The BJP hit back at Kharge saying, he should first see how many holes are there in his tiled roof.“The stories of the colourful nightlife of the Congress leaders is not a mere hearsay. There are many secret CDs available,” the BJP charged in its tweet.The party also said that the gentle Congress leaders are like a tiger in the hide of a cow. PTI GMS ROH ROH
