Mysuru, August 6:- “I will not step down as the president of Mysuru Zilla Panchayat. My term is for 30 months and not 20 months as projected. I will think of stepping down only after 30 months as ZP president,” asserted Zilla Panchayat President Nayeema Sultana here on Monday.
She was speaking to reporters after distributing retrofitted two-wheelers to physically challenged beneficiaries under Zilla Panchayat funds at Mysuru zilla panchayat premises in the city.
“Many are trying to coerce me step down. I am working honestly without worrying about anything. If the tourism and sericulture minister Sa Ra Mahesh or Higher Education Minister G T Devegowda pressure me to step down, then I will give my resignation,” she added.
Retrofitted vehicles which cost Rs 53,490 each were distributed to 23 beneficiaries at a total cost of Rs 26,21,010
MLA Ashwin Kumar, Zilla Panchayat member Beerihundi Basavanna and others were present. (MR/KS).
