'Fight for taluk-tag to continue'

Speaking at the meeting, Committee President V P Shashidhar urged that all organisations which demand for Cauery taluk formation should join hands with the Central Action Committee to fight for the cause. The meet resolved to meet Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who will be visiting the district on June 27, to submit memorandum with regard to the formation of new taluk. Future course of action will be decided in a meeting of the Central Action Committee to be held on June 30.  General Secretary R K Nagendrababu said that though the demand for a new taluk was raised two decades ago, government did not respond to it due to lack of political will.  Zilla Panchayat former vice president Kamala Ganapathi, Town Panchayat member V N Mahesh and Taluk Panchayat member G R Pushpalatha were present.
