Party members would take out on June 28  padyatra covering 20 km from Ankalagi to Belagum condemning the government attitude that paved way for the suicide of farmer Vittal Harbhavi.

The programme would enable electrification process in rural area and would also facilitate lessening of overload pressure in the areas.

Alleging the State government of irresponsible attitude, the former CM said resource mobilisation in State is nil. The development aspect is totally ignored. He said denotification of land is the process executed during the tenure of all chief ministers previously, however, the government is planning to frame him and former CM Kumaraswami.

He said stringent protest would be taken up jointly by him and former PM Devegowda and former CM Kumaraswami to condemn the government approach. There should not be any special message, as both parties would play the role of opposition parties, he added.
