Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday said he is not against family politics. But, elected legislators must become people’s representatives in true sense, he added.  

He was speaking at election campaign meet seeking vote for Congress nominee Raju M Talluru on the premises of Ranganathaswamy temple here.

He said people elect legislators through elections in the democratic setup. So, there is no point in opposing the family politics.

Siddaramaiah said Sorab is still one of the backward taluks in the state and it is being discussed at the state-level. He appealed to voters to back Raju in the Assembly elections and thereby lay the foundation for the development of the constituency. 

Water project promised

He promised that if the party is voted back to power, irrigation projects worth Rs 150 crore would be implemented in the taluk so that farmers could irrigate 12,000 acres of land.
