Pratap Simha promises further development

Mysuru, May 28:- “Heritage city is the best place for tourism, but due to unavailability of proper connectivity, tourism has not been developed to the full potential. In my second term, emphasis will be on connectivity,” said MP from Mysuru and Kodagu Constituency Pratap Simha at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Tuesday.

He thanked voters, party workers and leaders for their support.  He assured of rail connectivity for Mysuru from Mumbai, Madgaon, Thiruvananthapuram, Goa and other major places. He opined that the Talavara-Parivara issue may get solved in the session this time.

“I have won by a big margin. This is because of Narendra Modi’s charisma and hard work of party workers. MLA S A Ramadass, Kote Shivanna, Nagendra, Appachu Ranjan, Bopaiah and others also worked hard for my victory,” he said.

“Voters of Krishnaraja, Chamaraja, Chamundeshwari, Kodagu, Hunsur and Narasimharaja Assembly constituencies have reposed faith in me. I also thank BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa for his support. Though there were several other leaders, people saw only Modi,” he said.

“I also thank Sangh Parivar for their work and also Modi supporters in Congress and Janata Dal (Secular). Mysuru – Madikeri road widening and upgrading of the airport will be done. Bengaluru – Mysuru road will be made 10 lanes and Mysuru – Madikeri 6 lanes,” he added.

“I have not come to politics to become a minister. People have voted me again because of the good works done in the last 5 years. I will complete the pending works in this term. I am a journalist from within. I am more of a journalist than a politician and I still have an opportunity to write,” he said.

“Former chief minister Siddaramaiah tried his best to defeat me but lost because of Modi wave. I am not a realtor nor do I have any estate. Though Prakash Rai, who opposed me has lost the election, I wish him better luck in cinema. We have ideological differences but I am his good fan. He should make Kannada and Karnataka proud in South India,” he added.

“We will try to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi for International Yoga Day on June 21. If not this time, I am hopeful of him attending the event at least once in the next 5 years,” he said.
