RTI activist Laxman backs teachers in their demand

RTI activist Laxman ex­pressed his support to agitat­ing teachers in Mysore South on Saturday. He pledged his support in solving their prob­lems and they in turn urged Laxman to contest inde­pendently if he was denied a Congress ticket in the MLC election representing teachers’ constituency. Assuring their support, they demanded that he contest against the Congress if the need arises.

The turn of events unfolded when Laxman expressed to his supporters that the Chief Min­ister had refused to issue him a party ticket for contesting in the upcoming MLC elections. He said “though I worked in favour of the party, the CM re­jected my application without stating a reason for its rejec­tion,” he alleged.

“I have enrolled twenty thousand graduate voters by touring four districts including Mysuru, Mandya, Chamara­janagar and Hassan. Besides, I have introduced 16,000 vot­ers belonging to the SC, ST and minority community during the Assembly elections when the CM had contested on the ground of Ahinda vote strategy and my sincere work has bene­fitted the party to win in Mysu­ru. But now my application has been rejected,” he lamented.

Supporters of Laxman expressed their displeasure against the Congress for se­lecting Dr Manjunath in a bi­ased manner ignoring Laxman for contesting from the graduates’ constituency.
