Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (SP)
Mangaluru, January 15: “The Padayatra organized by the State Congress on the issue of the execution of the Mekedatu project is an outright political ploy to discredit the state government. This was part of the conspiracy hatched by this gone to smear the image of the government,” said Mangaluru (southern) MLA D Vedavyasa Kamath.
He accused Congress of misleading the people of the state by fighting over an issue that was already before the courts. “Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee Chairman DK Shivakumar and his supporters should have shown respect to the judiciary. They knew the matter was before the courts but continued to treat the system with disdain and confused. The people of the state will teach Congress a good lesson for misguiding them,” MLA said.
Kamath said it is the responsibility of the state government to provide enough clean water in Bengaluru and other places. “Our government is committed to fulfilling this responsibility. However, the implementation of the project has been halted as the government of Tamil Nadu has gone to court against the project. If possible, Shivakumar and his team have to go to Tamil Nadu and convince the government there to withdraw the lawsuit,” he said, while advising the Congress not to provide false information and false advice to the people and mislead them by lying.
He accused Congress of contributing to the proliferation of covid19 infection by holding Padayatra as the third wave of the pandemic sweeps the state. “By not honoring the demands and demands made by various quarters against the holding of Padayatra, members of Congress have shown their disinterest in the health of citizens. We hope that Congress, at least now, will maintain the judicial supremacy and will cooperate with the state government on the issue of Mekedatu,” he urged.
