State to host Global meet on agri investment

Addressing a public meeting at Alur on Monday, he said the proposed meet would be on the lines of one that was held in Bangalore to attract investment in industries.
The aim of the GIM would be to improve the living condition of farmers and to make them aware regarding various developments that have taken place in the field of agriculture. Investment in this field would fetch remunerative prices for the ryots as well development horticulture, agriculture and dairying in the State.

 The BJP government had launched many schemes in the last two and a half years; but the Opposition parties unable to digest the growing popularity of the government have been making allegations. It was hightime the Opposition parties stop torturing him mentally and join hands for the overall improvement o the State.

The CM said in the next two years, the government would offer agriculture loan at one per cent interest rate and bear the entire medical expenditure of poor patients. The government’s aim was to make the State free from huts and slums.

Yeddyurappa said there was suffocating atmosphere in the district because of feudal system and that could be banished only with the mantra of deveopment. The people should elect BJP candidates to ensure the development of district. Former PM H D Deve Gowda and his sons troubled all the CMs in the past and have continued their habit till date.

They were day dreaming of removing the BJP Government and coming back to power. He would not care for such threats and his aim was to ensure the victory of more than 150 seats in the Assembly elections due after two years. “We will send the Opposition parties to homes after the polls”, he added.

He said the government was committed to strengthen the taluk panchayats after the elections and stress on educating the rural youths. Besides, revolutionary changes would be brought in the field of education.

Grama Sabhas
The backward and neglected districts would be given priority in the State Budget for the year 2011-12. Need of the hour was to strengthen the gram sabhas so that the benefits reach the real beneficiaries sans middlemen.

Later, addressing another meeting in Hallimysore in Holenarasipur taluk, Yeddyurappa said there was an emergent need to free the district from the hands of feudal lords and that was possible only if the electorate vote for BJP in the coming elections.
There is no dearth of funds and the government would pump in additional funds for the growth of the district.

The JD(S) and Congress governments could not give agriculture loans at three per cent interest and that happened only after he came the CM. In the coming days, the loans would be offered at one per cent interest and dibursed through the co-operative banks.
Yeddyurappa said he would agree with the KPCC president, Dr Parameshwar’s statement that the results of TP/ZP polls would be a referendum for the State government. The JD(S) MLA Jameer Ahmed had predicted the fall of the BJP Government.

The government would complete its full term and win more than 150 seats in the next Assembly polls. This is the semi-final match and the Assembly elections would be the final match in which the BJP would register a landslide victory, he claimed.

The CM said voters are the masters in democracy and they have power to elect or reject the political parties. While the BJP talks of development, the JD(S) and Congress leaders think that talking was the biggest achievement.

For the first time in the country, the State government had given 50 per cent reservation for women in the Panchayatraj system. The administrative machinery would be made pro-active in the coming days.

Housing and District-In-Charge Minister V Somanna, former minister, B B Shivappa, K M Srinivas and other leaders were present.
