Newly elected corporators learn lessons in Madikeri

The corporators-elect of Congress,who are camping at two resorts in Madikeri, were on Wednesday given a special lecture on the rights and responsibilities of the corporators.

Yeshwantpur legislator S T Somashekhar, Tarikere MLA Srinivas and senior corporator Gunashekhar delivered lectures for two hours at Vivanta By Taj hotel.

Senior corporator Padmavathi said that the elected members should understand the stand of their party on a particular issue. She said that they should support their party colleagues in meetings and should launch an attack to counter the Opposition parties. She said that the mayor should allot the funds available at his/her disposal equitably. The members elected for the first time heard the lectures attentively.

Some members expressed the opinion that the poor and the downtrodden had overwhelmingly voted for them. Hence, special programmes should be launched for their welfare. The corporators-elect cancelled their plan to visit the Dubare elephant camp in order. According to sources, the plan was dropped as otherwise it would convey a wrong message to people.
