Mangaluru: Despite there being multiple challenges like the flood, drought etc. in state, the BJP government has succeeded in undertaking different developmental works in state and responding to the grievances of the public properly, said MP and state BJP president Nalin Kumar Kateel on Friday, November 8.
He was addressing the reporters after releasing a booklet listing the BJP’s achievement in 100 days of its governance. He said, “Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has promised Rs 5 lakh for those who lost their houses completely in floods and Rs 10,000 for immediate relief. Accordingly, the amount has been deposited in the flood victims' bank account through RTGS. House rent of Rs 5000 per month, for those who are living in rented houses, has also been given. The Union government has already released Rs 1,200 crore as interim relief to the flood victims and it will assist the state government in helping the flood victims in the coming days as well.”
“When the BJP government was in both the state and Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC), different developmental works were undertaken in the city. Most of the main and interior roads of Mangaluru city were concretised when Yediyurappa was the Chief Minister. Upgradation of Wenlock and Lady Goschen Hospital, Mini Vidhana Soudha, renovation of circuit house and other infrastructure development projects were undertaken during the BJP government. As the BJP has succeeded in retaining power in state, there are more chances to undertake developmental works in the MCC. Hence, the people should support the BJP in the MCC election,” he added.
Dakshina Kannada district in-charge and Muzrai minister Kota Srinivas Poojary said that a total of 2,500 houses will be constructed for the fishermen community and the beneficiaries will be selected by the local MLAs. “The government will waive off loans (up to Rs 50,000) obtained by the fishermen from the nationalised banks during 2017-18 and 2018-19. It has already asked the banks not to collect theses loans from the fishermen,” he said.
Meanwhile, he asked the owners of bars and wine shops not to e worry about using the names of Gods and Goddesses for their establishments. “The government is yet to decide about issuing an order to change the names of the bars and wine shops. As some people feel that using the names of Gods and Goddesses for bars and wine shops looks odd, I have discussed the issue with the seniors in the Muzrai department. Till the final decision is made, the owners need not worry,” he said.
Former MLA Yogish Bhat, district BJP vice-president Ravishankar Mijar and other leaders like Kishore Rai, Uday Kumar Shetty, Bhaskarchandra Shetty, Sanjay Prabhu, Sudheesh Shetty and others were present.
