Centre failed to revive sugar factory: Madhwaraj

Udupi District in charge Minister Pramod Madhwaraj offers tribute to the memorial of his father Malpe Madhwaraj, before filing his nomination in Udupi on Monday.

Udupi District In-charge Minister Pramod Madhwaraj said that as a chief minister, B S Yeddyurappa did not give a single paisa for the revival of Brahmavar sugar factory.

The minister told reporters after filing his nomination on Monday that the Centre too has failed to help the revival of the sugar factory.

“It was the Congress government in Karnataka which released Rs 12 crore for the factory. A detailed project report was also prepared for its revival. There are also proposals to set up a government medical college and hospital in the sugar factory site,” the minister said.

He expressed confidence of winning the election with the voters supporting the service rendered by me and the welfare programmes initiated by the Congress government in the last five years.

“With the filing of nomination, a curtain has been drawn to the propaganda that I am joining another party,” he said.

Madhwaraj said that he was not engaged in hate politics.
