Mangaluru: JD(S) Dakshina Kannada district president B Mohammed Kunhi has resigned from his post. Stating that he has made the decision for personal reasons, he assured that he will remain an active worker of the party.
Addressing reporters here on Tuesday, October 8, Mohammed Kunhi said that he is no longer able to serve as the JD(S) district president owing to his health and other personal reasons. He informed that he has already submitted his resignation to the JDS national president H D Deve Gowda and former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy.
“There are other leaders in the district who are capable of handling the party in and will soon be selected by the party leaders. The new district president of the JD(S) will be selected in two days," he said.
Meanwhile, speaking about the floods in the state, Mohammed Kunhi lashed out at the state government for "utterly failing" to handle the flood situation in the state and compensate the flood victims. “Even though the Central Government has released Rs 1200 crores to be given as compensation to the flood victims, the money has not yet reached the intended beneficiaries. The Central Government took nearly two months to release this compensation, which is not enough to for all of the state's flood victims,” he added.
Government should be dissolved
Former minister K Amarnath Shetty, who was also present, asked if the state Government is "dead or alive". “As the state government has completely failed to carry out development works in the state and all the roads are in a pathetic condition, it should be dissolved immediately and a fresh election should be held in state," he demanded.
Other party leaders like Akshith Suvarna, Vasanth Poojary, Susheel Noronha and others were present.
