Former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda warned that if the Congress government neglects the development of the district it would become inevitable to launch a protest.
Speaking to media after inaugurating the Samudaya Bhavan in the taluk on Monday, he said the district was neglected during the last five years when BJP was running the State. He had also staged a protest in front of former chief minister Yeddyurappa’s residence earlier pressing to respond to the demands of Hassan people.

Commenting on the Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s visit to Hassan, he quipped “let him see the problems himself ”. The government hospital building is kept locked even after the work is complete as the government has failed to pay the contractors. The veterinary college students are facing bleak future as the government had failed to provide recognition. 

Let us wait and see what steps the chief minister takes for the overall development of the district, he said. 


The railway works that was planned during his tenure as the prime minister is being neglected by the current government. The government seems to overlook the Hassan-Bangalore route, he lamented. The government need not rake up its brains for the uplift of the backward communities. If it implements the projects that were planned during JD(S) tenure, it is sufficient, he opined. Though memorandum have been submitted for more than 18 times during the five years of BJP government, but in vain. Similarly 19 memoranda have been submitted to the Congress government so far, stressed to expedite development works, he said.
