Manipal: 70% Sugar Factory Owners are from BJP, BSY should Convince them to pay Farmers Dues – Sorake

Manipal: “70% of the sugar factory owners are from the BJP, BS Yeddyurappa should convince them to pay dues to farmers,” said Vinay Kumar Sorake, Minister for Urban Development and Minister in-charge District. He was addressing the mediapersons at a pressmeet after the review meeting at Zilla Panchayat, Udupi here on June 22.

Hitting hard on BS Yeddyurappa’s statement saying that the Congress government has failed to initiate steps to protect the interest of sugarcane growers, Vinay Kumar Sorake said that the support price fixed for sugarcane is highest when compared to other states in India. “While the BJP was in power in the state, it did not refer any scam to the CBI but the Congress government has referred 5 cases to the CBI including the financial irregularities in the Urban Development Authority.”

  1. One has to pay no attention to the politicians accusing their counterparts on a policy issue. They are all the same behind the curtains. It’s just the show they put on in front of the public to remain popular. In another news article you may have seen the BJP party members were seen accusing the ruling Congress party for the transfer of MCC commissioner. What many people fail to see is that the building mafia behind the curtains is running the show. Politicians are only the puppets who themselves have large interest in the real estate business through various not-so-visible arms. Common man is the sucker. Unfortunately we have pledged allegiance to our parties based on our religious beliefs and this is exactly these politicians want.
