Kolar: Party Colleague Slams Senior Leader Janardhan Poojary over Yettinahole Stand

Kolar: District Congress spokesperson Naganala Manjunath has come down heavily on senior party leader and former Union minister B Janardhana Poojary over his stand on Yettinahole project, which is claimed to benefit the arid areas of Chikkaballapur and Kolar, among others.

He has accused Poojary of needlessly objecting to the project and issuing statements against Chikkaballapur MP and former chief minister M Veerappa Moily, former chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda and state health minister U T Khader, the last mentioned also being minister-in-charge of Kolar district.

It was only after a study of the project by irrigation experts and obtaining a cabinet approval that chief minister Siddaramaiah has launched it. He levelled a serious charge that Poojary, who has been rejected by the voters during the past fifteen years was only trying to make matters worse for the sake of political rehabilitation.

He urged Poojary to visit the mid-state plateau and stay in Kolar for a month. Only then he would realize the life and thirst for water faced by the people of the region. It has been scientifically proved that the fluoride content of water has affected lactating mothers, resulting in infants suffering from physical deficiencies, said Manjunath.

In these circumstances, it was quite unfortunate that the senior leader of the party kept objecting to the project which was aimed at providing drinking water to those desperately in need of it. He has also warned that if Poojary continued to speak against the project, a complaint would be submitted to the national president of the party, Sonia Gandhi.
