MCC Elections: Vishwanath appeals voters to give full majority to JD(S)

Mysuru: Appealing the voters to elect JD(S) candidates in the forthcoming MCC elections, State JD(S) President A.H. Vishwanath has said that his party needs absolute majority for speedy implementation of key projects including Hale Unduwadi Drinking Water Project.

Addressing a press meet at a private hotel here yesterday, Vishwanath, explaining the limitations of a coalition power set up in the City Corporation, maintained that the JD(S) was the best option for the electorate, as the party is quick in addressing issues appropriately. He also underlined the need for converting MCC to Bruhat Mysuru Mahanagara Palike (BMMP) on the lines of BBMP, by bringing the cluster of villages around the city into the MCC fold.

Stressing on the need for establishment of an Exclusive Dasara Authority, he highlighted the need for making Dasara Exhibition Grounds a hub of expositions on all 365 days of the year, as it will be a big boost for the Tourism Industry.

Referring to Kodagu floods, Vishwanath demanded for a Co-ordination Committee meeting of the coalition Government to discuss the issue.

Maintaining that the Co-ordination Committee should have JD(S) and KPCC Presidents on board, Vishwanath, however, said that it was left to the National JD(S)  President and the Chief Minister to decide on the matter.

Reacting strongly to former CM Siddharamaiah’s claims that the JD(S) would not come to power in MCC polls, Vishwanath reminded the former CM of his past when he was in the JD(S) and served as a Minister and Deputy Chief Minister.

Replying to a question on Agriculture Minister Shivashankar Reddy’s statement on change of Chief Minister, Vishwanath said the Co-ordination Committee has been formed to strengthen the coalition government and not to destroy it.

Reacting to reports on flood ravaged Kodagu, the JD(S) President said that media was creating a scare by falsely reporting that Kodagu has been submerged. Although Kodagu has been ravaged by floods, it is not true that Kodagu has been completely submerged, he said and called for concerted efforts of the Government, Organisations, the media and all others in re-building Kodagu.

Mysuru District in-charge Minister G.T. Devegowda, highlighting the achievements of coalition Government, appealed the voters to cast their votes in favour of JD(S) candidates in the MCC polls.

    Mysoreans have an opportunity to usher in a new ERA by casting votes to those candidates who have signed the 11 conditions of MGP irrespective of their party affiliations or those who pledge to implement some minimum policies like refusing to take commissions offered by contractors for work undertaken in their wards, to promote digitization of property tax, promote 24 X 7 water supply, preserving parks and lakes by ensuring by ensuring all environmental laws are obeyed, and ensuring proper implementation of building bye laws and promote formation of ward committees. Unless the educated votes in large numbers to neutralize the impact of vote banks driven by caste, money power and religion, Mysore City Corporation will further fall into the hands of corrupt elements who in turn will destroy the city. Look around Mysuru. Chamundi Hills will have multi-level parking and shopping centers which will destroy the ecology but add little value. People’s park will soon have a public library which in turn will become a big parking lot and provide place for eateries to supply the needs of users on the library. Despite having plenty of water resources, Mysoreans suffer from water scarcity especially the poor or those who do not have sump and over head tanks. We cannot feel pessimistic by thinking what two or three honest and competent independent candidates can do. Just imagine what great shock it will give to political party leaders if we can elect candidates who have not spent lakhs to buy votes or not made appeal based on caste. All it takes for evil to succeed is for good people to remain indifferent or do nothing.
