Mangaluru: Senior Congress leader Janardhan Poojary held a press meet at the District congress office here on April 30.
Addressing the mediapersons Poojary said that Modi does not have the courage to fight against the president of Congress Sonia Gandhi in AgustaWesland VVIP chopper case. He also said that Modi is targeting Sonia indirectly and does not have the courage to fight her face to face. If the congress leaders were interested in making money they would have signed the deal instead of cancelling it.
He also said that H K Patil, Minister for Rural Development and Panchayat Raj should resign from his post because of his statement on drought. His statement, “there is no drought, only excess summer”, proves that Patil has not visited any drought affected rural areas.
Poojary further said that Subramanian Swamy does not have any moral right to question the UPA government.
When asked whether he will take part in the district Bundh against Yettinahole project, on May 19, Poojary said that he does not encourage anyone to call for a bundh because it is against the constitution. The bundh will surely affect the people and the economy too. Let the activists visit every house and convince the people to oppose the Yettinahole project. Instead of calling for a bundh we have to take the people of the district into confidence and sensitize them to fight against the government to drop the project.
Arun Coelho, Sudheer TK and others were also present.
