JD(S) to boycott dinner at Vidhana Soudha tonight

October 25, 2017

Dinner costs Rs. 3,000 per plate!

Hassan: Taking a strong stand against the extravagant budget for the celebrations to mark the iconic Vidhana Soudha turning 60, JD (S) legislators will  have only a glass of water and no dinner at the event planned by the Government in Bengaluru today.

Party senior leader H.D. Revanna said when farmers were having such a hard time it would be inappropriate for MLAs to have a lavish dinner costing Rs 3,000 a plate. “We want the money being spent on this lavish dinner to be used for the welfare of farmers, who run their homes on a budget of Rs. 3,000 a month,” he asserted.

Revanna revealed that the party’s decision not to allow its legislators to have dinner at Vidhana Soudha, had been conveyed to the Legislature Secretary.  

“Our legislators will not claim any TA/ DA either for attending the celebration nor accept any gold or silver biscuits that may be distributed on the occasion,” he declared, explaining that his party MLAs were attending the celebrations at Vidhana Soudha only in honour of the President.
