Udupi: “The Congress government is trying hard to weaken me by filing FIRs,” said BS Yeddyurappa, former Chief Minister and Byndoor-Shimoga MP, addressing a press meet at Hotel Diana here, on June 22. He was responding to the comments made by former Chief Minister Kumaraswamy stating that the Congress should stop troubling BSY by filing FIRs.
While questioned on the developments between the BJP and the JD(S), he said that the opposition must come together to educate people on the irregularities in the functioning of the Congress government.
“Governments in the past have also de-notified the land for the goodwill of the people. The court will do justice in the case.”
“Former MLA Araga Jnanendra and other activists were booked for raising their voice against the government in Nanditha case.”
“Sea erosion problems have to be solved. A grant of Rs 900 crore has been released in this regard. An investigation has to be initiated on the work done to control sea erosion.”
“Shivraj Tangadagi’s involvement has been suspected in the murder of an activist. A thorough investigation has to be conducted on the same.
He should be sacked from the cabinet. A protest has been organized in Koppal on June 27. Activists have been arrested for organizing the protest.”
“The support price for sugarcane has not been settled. A farmer has committed suicide and this issue will be raised in the legislative assembly; a padayatra will be held to Belagavi from Nalsangi. The
government should soon intervene in this regard,” he added. “BJP supported candidates have won in 103 Panchayats out of the 157 in Udupi district. Steps will be initiated for modifying electricity
transmission under Dheen Dayal Upadhyaya Yojana in Udupi, Chikkmagluru, Shimoga and Mangaluru.”
“The district-in-charge Minister and the MLA of Udupi have failed to initiate development projects in Udupi. The chief-secretary level review meeting has not been held in the district, which indicates the
failure of the Congress government in administration.”
District BJP Chief Thingale Vikramarjuna Hegde, former chief Uday Kumar Shetty, former MLA Raghupati Bhat, Vasanth V Salian, Sukumar Shetty, Kuthyaru Naveen Shetty, Raghavendra Kini and others were
