After Mysuru, Yeddy tours Chamarajanagar

June 12, 2017

Chamarajanagar: As part of the party’s State-wide ‘Janasamparka Abhiyana,’ State BJP President Yeddyurappa arrived in Chamarajanagar this morning on a one-day visit to the district. Upon his arrival from Mysuru, Yeddyurappa was accorded a warm reception by the party workers on the outskirts of the town.

The State BJP Chief began his campaign by planting a sapling near the Government polytechnic. He later left for Ramasamudra on the outskirts of the town, where he garlanded the statues of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and Babu Jagjivan Ram and thereafter had fruits at the residence of Dalit leader and Chamarajanagar CMC Member Mahadevaiah.

Yeddyurappa thereafter had breakfast at the residence of another Dalit leader Nanjundaswamy, a former CMC Member. The menu included dosa, ragi-dosa, idli, uppittu, kesaribath, bonda, chutney and sambar.

After having breakfast, he held a meeting with leaders from various communities in the premises of Nanjundaswamy’s house. Former Minister S.A. Ramdas, leaders Appanna, K. Shivaram, A.R. Krishnamurthy, Raghu Kautilya, C. Guruswamy, Prof. K.R. Mallikarjunappa, G.N. Nanjundaswamy, Parimala Nagappa, C.S. Niranjan Kumar and others were present.

Later addressing a press meet at Patrakarthara Bhavan, Yeddyurappa said that he had launched his State-wide tour on May 18 and Chamarajanagar was the 18th district he was visiting.

Asserting that he was visiting Dalit homes in order to have first-hand information of the problems in Dalit Colonies, Yeddyurappa maintained that he was having food at Dalit leader homes, upon invitation from the community members. He further said that Congress leaders were making baseless remarks against him, after being unable to digest the fact that the BJP was working more for the cause of Dalits.
