State govt move on MDB is to woo Maratha voters: Kadamba Sene

Mysuru, November 28:- Kannada outfit ‘Kadamba Sene’ has questioned the state government move to set up Maratha Development Board (MDB).

Talking to reporters at Mysuru Press Club here on Saturday (November 28), Sene state president Bakery Ramesh said, “There is a sinister design behind this. Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, with an eye on Maratha vote bank, has decided to form the MDB which is against peace in the society. He has planned to release Rs 50 crore towards this. The selfish motive is nothing but to woo Maratha voters.”

Ramesh said, “The Chief Minister is not able to feed his own children of the state, but wants to entice Marathi-speaking people. As soon as the BJP government came to power in the state, instead of releasing funds for the Kannada Development Authority (KDA), it cut the aid which was supposed to be released. After much hue and cry, it released some funds for the KDA. To release Rs 50 crore for MDB can’t be accepted.  On December 1, we will be protesting near the deputy commissioner’s (DC) office here and submit a memorandum to the Chief Minister.”

He added, “All the Kannada outfits should come together to protest against the state government on December 5 when we will be observing a ‘Karnataka bandh.’ All the leaders, including Kannada activists Vatal Nagaraj and Sa Ra Govind, should fight unitedly.”
