Poojary says he voiced party workers' view

Congress leader B Janardhana Poojary on Wednesday said he voiced the opinion of the party workers’ at a meeting in Mysuru recently.

Addressing media persons in the city on Wednesday, Poojary said his statement was meant to strengthen the party.

Poojary had said that it will be difficult for the party to come to power if ministers, who are not performing, are not dropped from the Cabinet. The party workers have complained that the ministers are ignoring them, he had said.
He criticised the attitude of political leaders, including the Congress ones, regarding the display of flexes for publicity.

Poojary urged the State government to provide Kumki land rights to farmers and to regularise lands under Akrama-Sakrama scheme. Also, Moolageni rights should be provided to land holders, he said.

He urged the prime minister to react to confession of terrorist David Headley. He welcomed the prime minister’s gesture of visiting the Military Hospital to inquire about the health condition of Lance Naik Hanumanthappa Koppad. The prime minister should have visited the families of farmers who have committed suicide and suggested the Karnataka chief minister to visit Lance Naik Hanumanthappa Koppad, he said.

He accused the Union government of trying to destabilise the state governments. Poojary said the federal structure of the country is at stake.

The dictatorship by the prime minister will not work longer as the BJP allies --- TDP, Shiv Sena and Akali Dal --- have lost faith in him. According to a review by The New York Times, the Union government has lost credibility, he charged.

Poojary said the promises made by the BJP before elections have not been fulfilled. “What happened to according autonomous status to CBI, bringing back of black money, control of prices of daily commodities and other issues?” he questioned.
