He was speaking after inaugurating the the Teachers Day and the centenary celebrations of the Girls Higher Primary School as part of the National Festivals Committee programme in Chintamani on Thursday and said due to the failure of the system every development work takes years to be completed.

This has resulted in the delay of  providing basic facilities. Abroad there is no such snail’s pace system. The development works progress smoothly without the interference of anyone, he said.

Due to a strong political system, neither the legislature nor the executive has any control and hence the role of judiciary comes to play a big role which in turn slows down all project works, he said.

If the elected representatives understand their responsibilities properly, only then can development works be taken up and completed fast, he added.

Even the officers should not bow to the political pressures but instead understand the root of the problems and complete the development works. If for some the service of the people was service to God, for others it was only service to God that took precedence, said Sudhakar.

He claimed that he was doing works that helped the public. But those who feel that they can buy the votes will be taught a lesson by the people, he said.

In the whole State for the first time a high-tech cable is being laid on poles through which power will be passed in Chintamani. In the town’s MG Road and Chelur Road Rs 25 lakh has been sanctioned. For the underground drainage I have got Rs 6.60 crore sanctioned.
Once one is a politician it is quite common to have power or lose it and hece one should develop a sense of purpose with regard to society, he advised.

Taluk Panchayat president presided, Zilla Panchayat vice president Chendur Venkatesh, DySP Govindaiah, retired principal Prof Venkatashiva Reddy spoke about Teachers Day.
District Primary School Teachers Association president K L Srinivas, Block Education Officer K Manjunath, Town Planning Development Authority chairman N Shanker and TAPCMS president Ravindra Gowda spoke. Award winning teachers were felicitated.
