‘ESIC dispensary soon in Chikkamagaluru district’

‘ESIC dispensary soon in Chikkamagaluru district’

MP Shobha Karandlaje was felicitated by party workers at the BJP party office in Chikkamagaluru on Friday.

Newly elected MP Shobha Karandlaje said an Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) dispensary will be soon set up in the district. 

“A physician and a staffer have been appointed to the ESIC dispensary,” Shobha said and added that she will fulfil the demand of setting up an ESIC hospital in the district.

Karandlaje was addressing the party workers after being felicitated at the party office. 

Sharing her vision for the district, she said her immediate focus will be on setting up a pepper park. "I will bring funds under the Centre’s different projects to ensure the comprehensive development of the district," she promised.

Karandlaje recollected that state BJP president B S Yeddyurappa had predicted six months ago that BJP will win 22 out of the total 28 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka. 

She said BJP’s outright victory in 25 Lok Sabha seats is a tight slap to the Congress-JD(S) coalition government.

Karandlaje said BJP’s clean sweep is also an utter humiliation to Mahagathbandhan. Former chief minister Siddaramaiah, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, Ministers D K Shivakumar and Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara who spoke ill about Yeddyurappa and Prime Minister Modi were rejected by voters, she claimed.

“The clear mandate from voters will help the government to implement its promises made to the voters. The party also should strive to bring BJP to power in the state and four urban local bodies,” Shobha stressed.

MLA C T Ravi said Karandlaje was ranked third among the elected MPs who have won with a huge margin. “I wish that she secure a post in the Union Cabinet,” he wished and advised her to implement development works in the district on a priority basis.

BJP leader M K Pranesh said Shobha’s huge victory margin was unexpected. Being the lone woman MP from South India, she should be made a minister, he stressed.

BJP leaders Hirigayya, Rajappa, H D Thammiah and B G Somashekarappa were present in the programme.
