JD(S) criticises Appachu Ranjan

Madikeri:Jan 25, 2013 DH News Service

District-in-charge minister takes credit for others’ works, alleges Shashidhar

JD(S) District President V P Shashidhar has made allegations against District-in-Charge Minister Appachu Ranjan of trying to curb the peaceful protests staged by the people and political parties placing forth their demands and condemning the injustice.

Addressing reporters in the city on Thursday, he rediculed the district-in-charge minister for taking all credits for achievements done by others, for himself. The fund was released for the construction of hi-tech market in Sowarpet when JDS(S) leader Jeevijaya was the MLA.

When his term got over, everything apart from the tender process was pending. But the district-in-charge minister has concealed that fact and is boosting of setting up the hi-tech market all by himself. When the party workers tried to express their anger in the form of displaying black flags on the day of the market inauguration, the minister who could not bear the insult pressurised the police to register case against the protesters. His gesture is nothing but anti-democratic, Shashidhar rebuked.


“Several false cases have been booked against our party workers and leaders for staging protests at Kodlipet, Shanivarsanthe, Somwarpet opposing the failure of the government. But the minister should understand that he can not stop the protests and the protesters by way of registering cases, filing defamation charges, false atrocity cases etc,” he said.

Taking a dig at the minister and the district administration, he said there has been misappropriation in sanctioning government land reserved for burial ground at Doddakothur village in Shanivarsanthe hobli. The government land has been sanctioned to a few people under Akrama-Sakrama scheme. Though the villagers have been using this land from several decades, a few people are not planning to sanction the land for themselves, he complained.

The JD(S) leader also demanded the district administration and the government to take steps to give sites to home-less people at Cheriyaparambu near Napoklu. Why the elected representatives who have given shelter to some people near Kushalnagar main road, have come forward to evict the shelterless families in Cheriyaparambu, he asked.        
                         
On the constroversy surrounding Tipu Sulthan University at Srirangapattana, he said he was in favour of building university on Tipu’s name.

“Tipu was a great patriot who had protected his citizens by keeping two of his children in stake. But history has been twisted by fundamental forces. The BJP which says that it agrees to name the university after Abdul Kalam, why can’t it agree for naming the university after Tipu? How do these BJP leaders define nationalism,” he questioned.
