Plaint against MP, MLA

At the Janata Darshan programme, complaints were submitted to the chief minister about Congress Member of Parliament D K Suresh and legislator Ramesh Jarkiholi.Nagarajaiah, a subedar (army officer), complained to the chief minister that Suresh had been indulging in illegal quarrying next to his house in Kanakapura. 

He alleged that debris and dust due quarry blasting were severely affecting agricultural activities in the fields surrounding the quarry. Pollution was also creating health hazards, he said. Despite complaints, no action had been taken, he added.

A group of labourers from Gokak Falls in Belgaum district urged Siddaramaiah to immediately cancel the agreement between Gokak Mills and the government and withdraw 1,093 acres leased to them. They claimed the land was leased to Gokak Water Power and Manufacturing Company in 1884 by the British rulers for a period of 99 years. 

However, the lease was being illegally continued, they said, and charged local legislator Ramesh Jarkiholi with “interference.” A number of aspirants for various posts in boards, corporations and academies also attended at the Janata Darshan.
