CM's declaration during 'Vijaya Sankalpa'
Mysore, Apr. 7 (SH&ACP)- Special power production plants would be set up and uninterrupted power supplied in Karnataka within three years, declared Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa here on Tuesday.
He made the above declaration while taking part in the 'Vijaya Sankalpa' rally organised by Bharatiya Janata Party, Mysore region, at the National Institute of Engineering (NIE) Diamond Jubilee Indoor Sports Complex here on the eve of polls to Gram Panchayats in the State.
Yeddyurappa called upon the party workers to make it known to the rural fraternity that the problems relating to power in the State were the creation of the Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) parties which ruled in the State and not of BJP.
Explaining that his government had brought in anti-cow slaughter Act and ban on production and sale of arrack in the State with determination, Yeddyurappa disclosed that it was his desire to present a budget of the volume of one lakh crore rupees before the end of his present term in office. The voters of Bangalore city had voted in favour of BJP having realised the party's achievements of development during its 22-month rule, Yeddyurappa averred.
Statements such as equal share to all, equal opportunity for all and social justice had remained only as slogans. But, BJP had not practised caste-based politics so far, he declared, adding that benefits had been extended to people of all communities and castes by his government.
Rural areas would be developed in such a manner that would not only present exodus of rural populations to urban areas but also to induce urbanites to move to the villages, he said.
Gram Panchayat polls are helpful in programmes of organising the party and therefore it was imperative to identify honest youth and nominate them as candidates in the elections, he explained.
Atal Behari Vajpayee had launched Bharatiya Janata Party in Delhi 30 years ago and the party had grown in stature exceeding that of the Congress party which had a history of more than 100 years, Yeddyurappa remarked.
Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) Party had been blasted in the just held polls to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike. Parties which had risen to great heights have been forced to bite the dust by the voters. It is required to respond to the feelings of people so that similar fate does not befall the Bharatiya Janata Party, Yeddyurappa opined.
More than 5,000 party workers and leaders from Mysore region including Mysore, Mandya, Chamarajanagar and Hassan took part in the convention.
