Party rewarded for initiating development works: Siddaramaiah

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, his Cabinet colleagues, MPs and Congress leaders expressed their gratitude to the party workers and voters of Gundlupet taluk for securing a victory for their candidate M C Mohana Kumari in the recently held bypolls.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that, “The party has worked for the welfare of the people over the past four years and has been rewarded in the bypolls. I salute the people of Gundlupet for the recent victory.”

‘Stupendous victory’
District in-charge Minister U T Khader said that by winning both Gundlupet and Nanjangud Assembly constituencies, the Congress and the people have sounded a warning bell to the Centre. “The party has hit a ‘sixer’ which has crossed the boundary and has fallen in the courtyard of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he said.

MP R Dhruvanarayan said that the party’s victory in the bypolls has instilled confidence among party workers across the country. It has proved that Modi’s magic will not be successful always.

Minister A Manju said that the victory is a reward gifted by the people of Gundlupet for the development works initiated by the government. KPCC working president Dinesh Gundu Rao said that following the victory, late minister H S Mahadev Prasad’s soul will rest in peace.

Planning Commission vice chairman C M Ibrahim said that the meeting should be taken as a ‘responsibility meeting’ rather than ‘vijayotsava’.

MLA Mohana Kumari said that she would strive for the welfare of the people and ensure development in the taluk. She called upon people to shed ‘caste politics’ and work for ‘development politics’. She also appealed to the people to extend their cooperation to make Gundlupet a model district.

Ministers M B Patil, Vinay Kumar Kulkarni, Dr Sharanprakash Patil, Ramalinga Reddy, Eshwar Khandre, Roshan Baig, KPCC women’s wing president Lakshmi Hebbalkar and legislators were also present.
