BSY campaigns for BJP candidate in Kumble

Speaking at an election campaign rally held at Kumble on Saturday, he said Anna Hazare has brought in a revolution by fasting for the implementation of Lokpal Bill.

“Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been surrounded by scams, which the country has not witnessed so far,” he said.

Manjeshwar constituency had not seen any development works in the past.
The people of the region still depend on Dakshina Kannada district for health care and education.

“The CPM and Congress are trying to project the BJP as communal. The BJP has been giving protection to the minorities,” he said and added that there are ample opportunities for ayurveda and nature cure in Kerala. However, the government is neglecting it.

The Chief Minister campaigned for Manjeshwar Assembly constituency candidate K Surendran.

Convene CMs meet

Speaking to media persons at Bajpe airport before proceeding to Kasargod, he said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has to call for a meeting of all the Chief Ministers before drafting the new Jan Lokpal Bill. Welcoming the Central government’s decision of drafting the Jan Lokpal Bill, he said once the Bill is passed in the Parliament, then every State government would be liable for the proper implementation of the Bill. As the draft is yet to be framed, it is necessary for the Prime Minister to call upon a meeting of the Chief Ministers, hold discussion and consider their opinions, he said.

When asked about the ban on Endosulfan, he said the ban was imposed temporarily for a period of two months which would lose its validity in another few days. But the State government will make it a point to ban endosulfan permanently, he ascertained.
