Maharashtra move an `election stunt': MP

By Our Staff Correspondent

BELGAUM, SEPT. 30. The Bharatiya Janata Party Lok Sabha member, Suresh Angadi, has termed the Maharashtra Government approaching the Supreme Court demanding the transfer of Belgaum and certain other areas of Karnataka to that State as a typical "Congress election stunt."

Addressing presspersons here on Wednesday, he said that the Congress, which was in power in both Maharashtra and Karnataka, besides the Centre, raked up the issue only with an eye on the coming Assembly elections in Maharashtra.

Yellow cards

Mr. Angadi disputed the claims of district in-charge and Agricultural Marketing Minister, Prakash B. Hukkeri, that the Government had withdrawn its order on cancellation of yellow cards of about 2.40 lakh beneficiaries in the district.

He said that officials were continuing to cancel the cards as they had not received any communication from the Government in that regard.

He accused the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition Government of giving false assurances to powerloom weavers.

The package, which was announced, was yet to be implemented.

The matter was yet to be taken up by the Cabinet.

The conditions of weavers were, meanwhile getting worse, he said.

Mr. Angadi said the Bharatiya Janata Party opposed the Government's move to bring anganwadi workers under the purview of gram panchayats as it might lead to the exploitation of workers by gram panchayat members.
