Only the poor live in Banashankari, says JD(S) MLC

The rich in Bengaluru live in HSR Layout while the “poor” are concentrated in Banashankari, according to JD(S) MLC T A Saravana.

The MLC, who is into jewellery business, even sought a survey in Banashankari, when his claims were contested by the other members in the Legislative Council, on Friday. He made this rather interesting observation while highlighting the plight of the poor of the State through a poem.

Congress MLC V S Ugrappa wondered which category Saravana belonged to -  ‘rich’ or ‘poor’. Saravana shot back at Ugrappa stating that he belonged to the “same category” as the latter. He however said that the ‘rich’, like Ugrappa, lived in HSR Layout, and ‘poor’ people like him live in Banashankari. To this, Congress MLC M R Seetharam said that if that was the case, then there was no work for policy makers and that all the members had better retire home.
