Admitting that there were some hurdles in the distribution of Ashraya houses, he said that measures will be taken for distribution of houses after clearing all the hurdles.
Explaining his plans for the next 5 years if he is re-elected, Vasu said that he would take up issues such as Lansdowne building, Devaraja market building and infrastructure development in old areas such as Kumbarakoppal, Lokanayakanagar and Metagalli.
He further said that he would make a big push for infrastructure development across Chamaraja Constituency.
Recalling his days as city Mayor almost three decades ago, Vasu said that as Mayor he got an opportunity to host the 60th Kannada Sahitya Sammelana in Mysuru.
Pointing out that all the MCC Corporators then had extended their co-operation to him, Vasu recalled the warmth and support he got from the Corporators and the MCC staff then.
Claiming that he has earned the confidence of all sections of the society, irrespective of caste and creed, the Congress candidate said that the party workers were working with conviction for him. Reiterating that the electorate will bless him once again considering his performance as the Constituency MLA for the past 5 years, he said that he was looking forward to another term so that he can complete his agenda of development.
