Announcing a slew of sops to the constituency, the chief minister said that he would develop Sira on the lines of Shikaripura if the people vote for the BJP candidate. Yediyurappa is known to keep his words, he added.

“Madalur lake, a lifeline of Sira taluk, will be filled in six months. This apart, 60 tanks and lakes will be filled through the Upper Bhadra project,” the CM said.

He added, bagair hukum cultivation slips will be issued to the tillers. He also assured of houses for the homeless in the taluk. The CM also mentioned the grants given to the temples including the Junjappa temple (deity of the
Kadugollas).

Union Minister D V Sadananda Gowda said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has come up with many measures and schemes to double the income of the farmers. The amendment brought to the APMC Act will help the farmers get direct access to market and good price to their produce.”
