Mysuru, March 28:- “Though Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Janata Dal (Secular) are mocking Siddaramaiah as Ahinda Chief Minister, the SC and ST communities should support Congress for introducing programmes to support the community,” said Zilla Panchayat member Achyuthanand.
He was speaking after inaugurating a preview meeting of Congress cadres at K R Nagar Amba Bhavani Community centre on Tuesday.
“Siddaramaiah has released more funds for the development of SC and ST communities. He has introduced 50% reservation in government tenders. Community members should not vote BJP and JD(S) who are against this. MLA of K R Nagar opposed when students were given free laptops and bus passes. We can understand his narrow mindset on such matters. Siddaramaiah has given corruption-free government for the past 5 years. Congress will come back to power again and Siddaramaiah will become the chief minister. For the overall development of the taluk, people have to elect Ravishankar,” he added.
He warned of filing a complaint against the MLA alleging he has spread rumours against him.
Block Congress president M S Mahadev, former ZP member Rajaiah, taluk panchayat member M Thammanna, TAPCMS director Cheluvaraju, Sampath, Sa Ma Yogish and others were present. (KS, NGB)
