“All the promises that I have made during the elections will be fulfilled in the next two budgets,” said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
He was speaking at the foundation laying ceremony for various public welfare works in Nanjangud on Thursday. He said, “The state government has already fulfilled over 125 promises out of the 165 assurances made during the election campaign. I will present two more budgets in 2017 and 2018 and will fulfil all the assurances made to the public. I have always been committed to social justice and have worked for the betterment of the oppressed section of the society and will never compromise on these issues.”
“The by-poll to Nanjangud assembly constituency may be held in February but we want to take up development works before the dates of the by-elections are announced and I have directed the District In-charge Minister, Dr H C Mahadevappa and officials to prepare the list of development programmes,” he added.
Siddaramaiah said, “I was not aware that the Nanjangud town was lagging behind in development. I have sanctioned over Rs 500 crore to the taluk in last few days. We need your support for an effective administration.”
On the occasion, various developmental works, including laying of roads, concretisation of roads, revamping of the Srikanteshwaraswamy and the Parusharama temples, building houses for poor, drinking water works, community halls, underground drainage works, and setting up of power sub-stations were launched.
Dr Mahadevappa, Minister for Cooperation, H S Mahadeva Prasad, Minister for Higher and Primary Education, Tanveer Sait, MP Dhruvanarayan and others were present.
