Government neglects Ch'nagar dist, charges MLA

Medical, ITI colleges, industries distant dream for residents

Addressing a news conference here, he said that even after 14 years of formation of new district, it has remained backward in all aspects. All the governments that ruled the State were responsible for this.

The district is facing drought-like situation and no programme has been taken up in any village to ease drinking water problem. Infact, the government has not even released a single rupee towards this.

In the previous budget, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa had promised to release Rs 50 lakh to each MLAs to take up development programmes in their respective constituencies.
But so far, only Rs 10 lakh has been released. This would delay in the implementation of works. 

Besides, The government was postponing to launch permanent drinking water project to 206 villages of Chamarajanagar and Gundlupet taluks. Money has not been released to expedite the project. There is no Co-operative bank in the district to help the farmers as it headquarters is located in Mysore.

 People of Chamarajanagar have to go to Mysore for every work. Need of the hour was to  bifurcate this bank in the interest of people of this region.

Milk Union

He also urged the government to establish a separate co-operative milk union from  the present Mysore- Chamarajanagar Milk Union and to set up milk products processing unit. The milk producers of Chamarajnagar district are supplying more milk than their Mysore counterparts. Over delayed construction of helipad, he accused officials of di
strict administration of not identifying land for the construction of same even though the government had released money three years ago.

On education front, the Government must open more ITI colleges, to give permission to open government or private owned Medical College. The government  delaying in taking decision for the development of outer ring road. The CMC has not bothered to start UGD works even after releasing Rs three crore.

Reacting to statement of Chief Ministers Political Secretary B J Puttaswamy against  Leader of Opposition in Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah, the MLA demanded the State Government  to come out with a list of programmes undertaken for uplift of backward classes .

The government never allowed Chairman of State Permanent Backward Classes Commission to hold caste census in the State. The Centre had released  Rs 21 crore and previous Government had just given Rs 14 crore.

Director of Mysore Chamarajanagar Milk Union Basavarajappa, Vimala Jayashankar, Taluk Panchayat members Nagaraju, B K Ravikumar, Syed Rafi and others were present.
