MLA G.T. Devegowda releases souvenir ‘Shatha Deepti’

Mysore/Mysuru: Chamundeshwari Constituency MLA G.T. Devegowda (GTD) has said that the menace of real estate business has changed the concept of co-operative movement. “Now it is not what I have done to the co-operative society. It has now become what I have earned from the co-operative society,” he regretted.

The MLA was speaking after inaugurating the centenary celebrations of The Mysore City Co-operative Housing Society Ltd. at Alamma Choultry in Shivarampet here on Sunday last.

He also released the souvenir Shatha Deepti on the occasion.

“The Mysore City Co-operative Housing Society which was formed by some veteran co-operators with a vision has completed its centenary. Late H. Nanjundaraj Urs, retired Judge late H. Channaiah, late M. Srinivasa Rao along with some others started this Co-operative Society with the intention of providing loans for house construction. Then the cooperatives didn’t take any TA/DA and worked selflessly keeping the interest of the Co-operative Society and the general public in mind. The Society has grown with hundreds of members now and is functioning successfully,” said G.T. Devegowda.

Former MUDA Chairman H.V. Rajeev  unveiled a plaque. Society President N. Srinivas presided.

MLA L. Nagendra, MLC C.N. Manjegowda, former MLA M.K. Somashekar, former MLC C.H. Vijayashankar, Deputy Registrar of Mysuru District Co-operative Societies G.R. Vijayakumar, Society Vice-President K.G. Shankaranarayana Shastry and others were present on the occasion.
