Gowda sees bright future for JD(S)

If the party workers unite and strengthen the hands of leaders, there is no doubt that the party would form the next government.

Speaking after inaugurating the district-level party workers meeting here on Sunday, he flayed the BJP government for betraying backward classes in the reservation of seats in TP/ZP polls. Of the total 40 ZP seats,  21 seats has been reserved for women.

The party workers should not get disheartened and work for the victory of the party in all the taluks. Women belonging to minority and backward classes should be given importance, he added.

The leaders, who had deserted the party for various reasons would be welcomed into the party fold, if they are ready to forget the past. The party would give tickets only those who are eligible to contest.

Former minister and MLA H D Revanna flayed the government for causing loss to the State exchequer of more than Rs 2,500 crore by purchasing power at exorbitant prices.

In spite of this, there has been no regular power supply across the state. All the five power companies in the state, were incurring loss worth crores of rupees.  The State had never experienced such a situation in the past, he claimed. “ V Somanna has again been reinstated as the district in-charge minister. He has been stripped of Food and Civil Supplies portfolio, a day after H D Devegowda.

He announced of distributing five kg rice to APL card holders. Somanna would lose even the Housing portfolio once the elections to the zilla and taluk panchayats are over”.

Revanna said Yeddyurappa declared general holidays on Kanakadasa Jayanthi only to win the hearts of Kurubas. If this is the case, the government has to declare all 365 days as holidays, he ridiculed.

MLA H S Prakash said BJP should have given equal opportunities for those belonging to all communities in politics, but the government has betrayed the minorities by reducing the reservation.

Arsikere MLA Shivalingegowda exuded confidence that the party would win all the ZP seats in his taluk. He said he would be the first person to oppose, if JD(S) strikes alliance with Congress, he added.

MLA H K Kumaraswamy, leader K M Rajegowda, MLC Patel Shivaram, former MLA B V Karigowda and others were present.

Former MLA Karigowda who had left the party rejoined the party in presence of this leaders.
