'Community function used for political gains'

Mysore, Nov 18, 2012, DHNS: 22:20 IST
The Valmiki Jayanti programme organised by Mysore Jilla Nayakara Yuva Vedike here on Monday provided a perfect platform for political leaders to promote themselves and their leaders.

While founder of BSR party, ex-minister B Sriramulu, who was scheduled to inaugurate the stage function at Jagan Mohan Palace skipped the programme, corporator M Pradeep Kumar took up the responsibility.

He, earlier launched a jatha of cultural troupes at 101 Ganapathi temple at Agrahara, which culminated at the Jagan Mohan Palace.

Pradeep Kumar ridiculed leaders of all political parties for not promoting young blood. He said: “Senior leaders in parties call upon the youth to enter politics.

Then, they preach that youth should take up responsibilities and come forward in politics. But, when it comes to issuing tickets to contest elections, youth are the last to be considered.” President of District Cooperative Union H V Rajeev pointed out that it was ex-chief minister B S Yeddyurappa who declared a holiday for Valmiki Jayanti and facilitated organising of the celebrations by the government.

He also pointed out that Yeddyurappa showered various grants on the Valmiki mutt for development.

Education


Several corporators and ex-MLA M K Somasekhar attended the programme while another ex-MLA Chikka Maadhu presided over. Somasekhar stressed on education for any community to prosper. He said members of communities should organise themselves and fight for their rights. He called upon the people to make use of all benefits extended by the government.

Descendant of Kargalli Maranayaka — who was a chieftain in the Mysore region at the fag end of 14th century — Mahadeva Nayak said Nayaks were a strong 1.5 crore population, comprising 11 tribes, and political parties cannot neglect them.

Seer of Valmiki mutt Sri Valmiki Sanjay Kumar Swamiji graced the function.
