'Eshwarappa needs nature cure'

Varthur Prakash also blames media for tinkering comments

The launch of the scheme, which will cater to the drinking water needs of Kolar, Malur and Bangarpet, was delayed as the election code of conduct was in force, he said and added that works will be completed within a year.

He was speaking after inaugurating the road-laying works at Ammanalur, undertaken at the cost of Rs 5 lakh.

“Roads and drains in about 100 villages in the taluk will be developed at the cost of Rs 1 lakh to Rs 5 lakh drawn from the MLA funds,” Prakash said.

Check dams

In addition, about 10 check dams will be constructed to strengthen minor irrigation in the taluk and funds, to the tune of Rs 5 lakh to Rs 25 lakh, will be granted to selected villages.

Expressing his displeasure over the recent remarks made by Minister for Power, K S Eshwarappa, that money and liquor played a decisive role in the victory of 19 BJP MPs, Varthur Prakash opined that Eshwarappa should be consoled by senior leaders of the party or ‘should be admitted to a nature cure centre’.

Prakash also blamed the media saying that his comments at a convention for the Kuruba community, where he said that Siddaramaiah was still the leader for the Kuruba community, was misinterpreted by the media.

He clarified that it was not a political gathering and his statements were not political in nature. He also clarified that he was at Delhi to congratulate all the MPs chosen from the State, and that there was no need to misconstrue his meeting with Siddaramaiah.

Rumours dismissed

“Yeddyurappa’s government will complete its  five-year term and he has the  support of all cabinet members,” Varthur Prakash said dismissing any rumour about an internal

Former president of the City Municipal Council Raghuram, party leaders Rajagopal, Ravichandregowda, Ravi, Satish and others were present.
