Reddy see red over transfers

In his speech, Reddy only once mentioned the chief minister and also apologised to B Shivappa, who was present at the function, for not being able to stop his transfer.

Superintendent of Police Seemant Kumar Singh who had come up to the venue of the function in T S Kudlur in Siraguppa taluk of the district returned quietly after the pooja.
Shivappa had done a good job in providing relief to the flood affected. "I apologise for not being able to retain him in the district," he said and alleged that the government had transferred the Gadag Deputy Commissioner and Health Secretary I R Perumal, who were dalits.   "Should we call it as an atrocity on the dalits?" he questioned.

Claiming that they were not after power, he said, "The God has given a lot of wealth through which we can render our sincere service to public. We are in politics to serve people. We are not being allowed to construct houses for the flood-affected people. We are ready for any sacrifice for the sake of the people," Reddy added.

 The Chief Minister has been begging for funds and has mobilised about Rs 50 crore, while mine owners had contributed Rs 500 crore for building 50,000 houses. The government has to shift 217 villages and build 50,000 houses; but it was furnishing wrong figures that two lakh houses had to be constructed for the flood-hit people.
At the function, the foundation stone was laid for construction of 900 houses from the BMM groups.

He compared some of the leaders in Bangalore to jackals and described Health Minister B Sriramulu as the real tiger.

Sriramulu also said that they were ready for any sacrifice. He said that Reddy brothers were striving hard for rehabilitation of the flood-hit people and some leaders in Bangalore were issuing statements out of jealousy. Janardhana Reddy has convinced the mine barons in the district to contribute liberally to help in construction of houses.
