Chief Minister Siddharamaiah, who arrived in city last evening to participate in various functions, conducted a Janata Darshan at his residence in Sharadadevinagar here today and heard the grievances of people, mostly personal in nature and received memoranda from them.

Hundreds of people comprising teachers and surveyors appealed for regularisation of their contract jobs.

The CM assured to discuss with the concerned authorities and do the needful.

A couple of teachers had come to seek transfer or cancellation of the same. The CM shot back at them saying that the transfer process was a policy matter and a prerogative of the department which should not be muddled.

A bunch of students of SC/ST category of Government Tool Room and Training Centre (GTTC), Mysore, complained that they had not received the scholarship amount for the last two years. The CM assured to do the needful.

One Srikanth, heading a tribal NGO, claimed that land rights had not been granted to tribals in 107 settlements. The CM assured to go into the details.

A few of the people gathered there sought more teachers at government schools and enough grant while some others sought houses under Ashraya Scheme.

B’day greetings: Surprisingly, a good number of people had come to greet Siddharamaiah on the eve of his birthday.

A couple of them extended an invitation for a wedding or a function at home. The CM was impressed by their humility and hospitality.

As the time was ticking for the CM to attend a function in city, the Janata Darshan was abruptly ended leaving some people in a quandary.

Thanks to the Saraswathipuram Police Inspector N.S. Chandrashekhar present there who boldly appealed to the CM to meet the rest of the lot also, Siddharamaiah obliged and heard their grievances too.
