'Cong committed to secular values, inclusive growth'

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who stayed overnight at Male Mahadeshwara Hill on Wednesday, began his day on Thursday by launching various development works at MM Hill.

Nanjangud

The chief minister called upon the people of Nanjangud not to give power to those who mesmerise people with slogans like 'sab ka sath sab ka vikas'. Launching development works worth Rs 484 crore here, the CM said, Congress is not limited to a particular caste and community, but respects all equally. "I am indebted to the people of Nanjangud for choosing Kalale Keshavamurthy in the bypolls," he said.

By asking the people to vote for Kalale Keshvamurthy again in the next elections, he indirectly confirmed his candidature from Nanjangud. "The elections would be held in the last week of April or first week of May. I have not come to seek votes for the elections, but to launch development works as assured," the CM said.

Siddaramaiah launched the Rs 125-crore drinking water project that supplies water to 123 villages, inaugurated the Mini Vidhana Soudha constructed at a cost of Rs 12 crore and the hi-tech bus stand. He also launched a slew of development works worth Rs 242.94 crore at T Narasipur.

District in-charge Minister H C Mahadevappa, MP Dhruvanarayan, and MLAs Kalale Keshavamurthy and Vasu accompanied him.
