'BJP will prove majority'

Chikmagalur, Jan 30, 2013, DHNS:

Minister for Higher Education C T Ravi has said that the BJP will prove the majority, if at all we are asked to prove it during the forthcoming budget session.

Speaking to presspersons on the sidelines of a programme here on Wednesday, he said “the government is like a shamiana.

There are hundreds of pillars making the government strong. If one or two pillars collapse, then it will not affect the government. However, circus tent will have only one pillar. If it collapses then tent will collapse, he said hinting at KJP.


“Chief minister Jagadish Shettar will present the budget. There is no doubt over presenting the budget. We will face all the challenges and problems,” he said.

Later speaking after disbursing facilities for beneficiaries, Ravi said that he will contest
from Chikmagalur constituency in the forthcoming Assembly elections. “The voters should not heed to rumours and allegations levelled against me by the opposition leaders,” he added. “Power is not permanent. Those who could not digest development work carried out by the BJP in Chikmagalur, are levelling allegations against us,” he said.

“A few had said that I had paid the bill without taking up the work on Rameshwara kere. When I challenged the opponents and asked the MP and Minister to visit the spot, the opposition became silent over the issue. I have invited opposition leaders for an open discussion on development work. However, none have come forward to discussion,” he said.  

“All those work which were pending for the last several years have been taken up by the BJP-led government. The work on UGD is likely to be completed by April. “Had the State not released funds, we would not got train from Kadur. The state government had released funds for the development of 165 km road. As many as 2,200 homeless have been identified in the constituency. Title deeds have been given to 1,000 beneficiaries. Deputy Commissioner has been directed to identify sites for 4,000 siteless.”

CMC President C R Premkumar, Vice president Lakshmamma, CMC Commissioner Prabhakar and others were present.
