Ajjampura may get taluk-tag

The then MLA S  M Nagaraj and the then ZP president S Thipperudraiah had urged the government to form Ajjampura taluk by aggregating six hoblis, one from Hosadurga taluk, one from Kadur taluk, one from Channgiri taluk and three hoblis - Ajjampura, Shivani and Amritapura- from Tarikere taluk.

The name of Ajjampura had appeared in the previous government’s list, but it has been dropped in the M B Prakash Committee, which has disappointed and enraged the members of the public.

What people say

Ajjampura Gram Panchayat President L Nagaratnamma said the government has been following step-motherly attitude by neglecting Ajjampura; and hence all parties will unitedly fight for the taluk tag in the coming days.

GP former president S Thipperudrappa said it is regrettable that the Prakash Panel has left out Ajjampura from its proposed list.

The GP member S Shivanand said the government should reconsider the proposal and follow the reports submitted earlier.

According to businessman S Nataraj, Ajjampura lacks taluk tag due to lack of political will. Student Rekha said the formation of new taluk will help students a lot in getting higher education.
