Dasu Bhandary, President AIAWU said that both the state and union government have ruined the hopes of the poor while it comes to providing basic necessities. 12,000 applications for providing housing sites and land are pending from 5 years. The administration after following protests has finally come up with a list of landless people. The process for distributing title deeds for landless people in the reserved land has not yet materialized.

The application processed under 94C and 94 CC are yet to be given title deeds. The problems of farmers and the landless people are not effectively addressed by the government of Karnataka.

The CITU demands 10 cents of land for the landless people. The government should provide basic facilities in the 10 cents land. The land should be reserved for carrying agricultural activities. The government should provide 5 acres of agricultural land to the poor for agricultural activities. The RTC’s should have both the names of husband and wife.
