Mysuru, January 4:- MLA of KR Nagar Constituency, Sa Ra Mahesh has written an open letter to District in-charge Minister V Somanna saying he would not attend any government meetings until the funds being held up are released. He had stayed away from the KDP meeting held at Zilla Panchayat Hall here on Friday.
“During the coalition government, the Rural Development Department had released Rs 7 crore, Department of Civic Administration released Rs 10 crore, PWD Rs 11.5 crore, and Tourism Department Rs 18 crore for various development works. But BJP government is doing vendetta politics by holding back the released funds. I had stayed away from Dasara events and brought it to your notice. Why you did not take any decision regarding this. I won’t attend KDP meeting and hurt by you by repeating the same thing. I won’t attend any government meetings until the funds are released,” he said in his letter to the district in-charge minister.
