CM hails late Minister’s contribution

 Development works worth Rs. 2,500 crore are in progress in Chamarajanagar district for which late H.S. Mahadevaprasad has played a major role, said Chief Minister Siddharamaiah here yesterday.

He was speaking at ‘H.S. Mahadevaprasad Mahasmarane’ programme organised in memory of the late Minister at Halahalli in Gundlupet, Chamarajanagar.

Mahadevaprasad was an ideal politician who responded to the problems of the people and also for the development of constituency. He will always be remembered by the people of State especially in Chamarajanagar and Gundlupet, he added.

Siddharamaiah also said that Mahadevaprasad was one among his friends in politics and added that his passing away was a huge loss for the State and Congress party and it was a bigger loss personally. Later, he also released a book titled ‘Sevapatha’ dedicated to Mahadevaprasad.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Geeta Mahadevaprasad said that the sudden demise of her husband came as a shock which made her feel lonely but after seeing a huge gathering the sense of loneliness has faded away.

“My only aim now is to follow the footsteps of my late husband under the guidance of Suttur Seer and Chief Minister Siddharamaiah,” she added.

Suttur Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji, Siddaganga Mutt Junior Pontiff Siddalingaswamiji, Kanakapura Seer Sri Mummudi Nirvana Swamiji and Chitradurga Murugha Mutt Seer Sri Shivamurthy Murugha Sharana graced the occasion.

Mahadevaprasad’s son Ganesh Prasad & brother Nanjundaprasad, Mysuru District Minister Dr. H.C. Mahadevappa, Ministers K.J. George, M. Krishnappa and U.T. Khader, Akhila Bharatha Veerashaiva Mahasabha President Shyamanur Shivashankarappa and MP R. Dhruvanarayan were present.
