'Janata darshan' at JD(S) convention

More than 30,000 party workers attended the mega convention organised by the JD(S) at Maharaja’s college grounds in city on Monday.

The ‘Marali manege’ convention turned out to be ‘janata darshan’ of sorts for ex-chief minister and JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy, who had arrived with his wife Anita Kumaraswamy, H D Revanna, Bhavani Revanna and a lot of other leaders.

A huge number of physically challenged, widows and children suffering from heart ailments had arrived with their parents and relatives and sought financial help from Kumaraswamy.

Addressing party workers, Kumaraswamy turned emotional after reading aloud a death note written by a person who had committed suicide that said: “H D Kumaraswamy, who can understand the poor should become the chief minister. I wanted to meet Kumaraswamy but did not get an opportunity”. Kumaraswamy said the letter was given to him by the deceased’s wife who has two children.

“I am committed to serve the poor and downtrodden to wipe their tears,” he added.

Challenge

Kumaraswamy challenged Opposition Leader Siddaramaiah saying that there will be more Kuruba legislators in his party than the Congress in the forthcoming Assembly polls and invited Siddaramaiah to accept the challenge.

Congress had two Kuruba legislators in the party. Out of them Kadur Krishnamurthy passed away and Siddarmaiah is the sole Kuruba leader.

But JD(S) has two Kuruba leaders now and there will be 10 to 12 leaders of the community during the Assembly elections, he said.

Kumaraswamy predicted that Siddaramaiah becoming the chief minister from Congress is not easy.

The Congress high command decides the chief minister of the state, he said.

GTD returns

Former KHB chairman G T Devegowda formally returned to the party fold on the occasion. He had tendered resignation to BJP a couple of days ago.

Cauvery issue

Commenting on the Cauvery issue, Kumaraswamy blamed the BJP and Congress for meting out injustice to the state.

He called upon the people to gear up to fight for their rights in Cauvery water sharing.

Ex-prime minister H D Deve Gowda is seeking legal suggestions from the experts over the issue and will write a letter to the prime minister through Jagadish Shettar, he added.

He called upon the party workers to shed differences of opinion and join hands for the victory of the party.

ULB polls

He exuded confidence that JD(S) will come to power and win all the 11 posts in Mysore district in the Urban local body polls to be held soon.

JD(S) state youth wing president Madhu Bangarappa, ex-minister H D Revanna, ex-minister M Mahadev and MP N Chaluvanarayanaswamy also spoke.

MLAs Sa Ra Mahesh, M Srinivas, C S Puttaraju and others were present.
