Mangaluru: Siddaramaiah is insensitive to problems of people- Poojary


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (DV)

Mangaluru, Jul 26: Former Union minister B Janardhana Poojary addressing a press meet at Press Club on Tuesday July 26 said, "Chief Minister (CM) Siddaramaiah has not taken the indefinite strike of 1.23 lac employees of the four state-run bus corporations seriously. Six crore people in the state are suffering and blaming the government and the party for the inconvenience they faced."

"The CM Siddaramaiah has had the experience of working in various positions, as finance minister, deputy chief minister and chief minister. Today he is acting blind and dumb though he has eyes and a mouth. People in the state have been discussing the issue on the streets. Prior to the elections, people had faith and expectations on the government, but in these three years, that faith has been changing day by day. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is responsible for that, as he has not listened to anyone nor has he responded to the problems," he added.

Praising former union ministers for labour and employment Oscar Fernandes and Mallikarjun Kharge he said, "Both leaders had responded to the problems of the labourers. Oscar Fernandes took into confidence all the unions affiliated to the various parties and had a meeting with the labourers in their time of crisis and responded to their problems. Today I ask the CM, when there are good past labour ministers, why he cannot hold discussions with them? His negligence is not strengthening the party but bringing down its strength."

Poojary also questioned the CM about his work in the government. "What good work he has done in his tenure of three years in the government? Why no FIR has been filed against police inspector Sanjeeva Gowda who abetted the attempt of suicide of sub-inspector Roopa? Is he trying to change the law of this land? Even in the cases of D K Ravi and DySP Ganapati, they are trying to change the definition of the dying declaration which is unpardonable. Several farmers have committed suicide and still how many more farmers are expected to commit suicide? How much compensation has he paid to the farmers? Let the people know."

Poojary said that the Congress high command is observing these developments and it will act soon. "His chair is shaking, but there is still time. Let him go to the high command for a discussion. If not, the high command will call all MLAs' meeting and take a decision. Either Oscar Fernandes or Mallikarjun Kharge will become CM. If the party shows preference for a lady CM, Motamma is available. D K Shivakumar is also available. There is no scarcity for leaders in the party." Poojary said.

Responding to a question on why he called the press meet at the Press Club instead of Congress party office, Poojary answered, "As you are all aware that in a recent visit of Dinesh Gundu Rao it was stated that those speaking against the party or government should not use the Congress Party Office. However, Dinesh Gundu Rao does not know that I am saving the party. I did not want to d embarrass him, so I did not use the Congress office."

On taking permission from the district Congress president to hold the press meet at the Congress office, Poojary said, "Taking permission is up to me."

On the news that he is being sidelined by the party, Poojary said, "No one can sideline me in their lifetime. Dinesh Gundu Rao is knowledgeable, but Ramanath Rai is not."

Kallige Taranatha Shetty, Arun Coelho and others were present in the press meet.

    The performance of Siddaramaiah is far better than any previous Chief Ministers like Yedda, Shettar, Smileanand Gowda.

    He has fulfilled almost alll promises listed in teh election manifesto and has provided a pro-people and clean governance.

    Only a few upper castes are jealous, insecure and upset and hence are spewing venom against Siddu.

    Janardhana Poojary is an honest, sincere and down to earth person. He doesn't shy away from criticizing his own party leaders for the welfare of the state. He should be made the CM of Karnataka. He will definitely stall the Yettinahole project and bring in development to Coastal Karnataka.

    Sir
    Being the Senior politician you are not supposed to talk to mediA against any member of your party. You call a high level meeting and confront face to face. If CM gives any comment against you how it will affect your party's objectives?
    This is dirty politics within to get invitation from opposition?

    Dear Poojarle, Congress has won the 2013 Assembly election under the leadership of Mr. Siddaramaiah. Congress blessed Poojary by giving MP ticket from Mangalore for 5 consecutive times but he is not able to win a single time. This is the high time to expel Mr. Poojary from the Congress party. enough is enough.

    4. announcing reshufle of cabinet

    5. useless bhagyas

    6. leading posh life with 70 lacs watch

    7. negelcting poor , common man

    This is only a personal opinion. Just like how the eminent judges of the Supreme Court have come up with various sanctions and conditions to the ever present cricket officials of the BCCI, the Supreme Court should also pass measures to stop politicians from operating after they have passed a certain age bracket. Our young turks will get a great chance to serve the country and those past their prime will be forced to sit in their hut and sip their evening drink ! Let us do away with age old politicians once for ever. They are good for nothing except for barking in the woods !

    Young Turks will get more chance to sleep. Siddu thinks nobody is above him. Is there anything appreciable during Siddu's tenure?. He has become Gamandie after that lady(pre planned) kissed him. S.M Krishna was far better than him in administration. I have high regard Jannanna. He is experienced person and he rightly said there should be discussions with employees and try to solve their problems. Otherwise,many people will commit suicide.

    You were batting for some useless celebrities like Hema malini, Sidhu Tendulkar and Shotgun about their status in the party. Forget these celebrities whom the party take into their fold just to cash in on their popularity and not in the interest of people...

    But look what we see here you Congress culture exposed. A senior Congress leader who speaks openly harsh truth , today is not not allowed into party office. He was asked to take Ibrahim kodijal or Bebiyanna s permission to enter the office of the party he worshiped like a slave throughout his political career that too being honest and non corrupt.

    Is this the way how you party treats one of its rare honest veteran, ...and you talk about Siddu and Hema malini being ignored in BJP! Wah..

    Good of it...even supporters disowned a good person like Shri Janardhan Poojary. It means people who tell truth do not have any role in congress. Now everybody knows fate of congress in karnatka..after two years. Nobody is happy with congress high command in central..nor even sandeep dixit or ajay makan..or diggy..having there own views..is not match one another.
