Meeting on invasion of locusts held
Speaking to the media, Jarkiholi said that a meeting with the officials of the Water Resource and Agriculture Departments was held to discuss the preventive measures to be taken to control the invasion of locusts, which are invading many cities in the country.
To a question on MLC ticket to former Minister A.H. Vishwanath, he said that he was not the decision-maker and added that the High Command would take a call only after holding discussions.
Naming of Yelahanka Flyover
Responding to the opposition by former CMs Siddharamaiah and H.D. Kumaraswamy to name Yelahanka Flyover after freedom fighter Veer Savarkar, the MP asked the former CMs to visit the jail in Andaman and Nicobar Islands where Savarkar was imprisoned to know about the freedom fighter.
Questioning the Opposition parties, Pratap Simha said why did the Congress party not remember the name of Kanakadasa while naming Indira Canteens or the name of any Kannadiga while naming Bandipur and Nagarahole Reserve Forests after Gandhi family members and why are they remembering Kannadigas now when there is a proposal to name the flyover after Veer Savarkar? The MP felt that the Congress party should wake up and indulge in healthy politics instead of only opposing for the sake of opposition.
