`Meet will provide a platform for Congress workers to air their grievances'


  • Convention to be held at the district stadium
  • More than one lakh partyworkers expected to participate
  • Congress workers to urge party leadership to snap tied with JD(S)

    HASSAN: The Hassan District Congress Committee (HDCC) will organise a district-level convention of partyworkers on November 22 to discuss problems being confronted by them after the formation of coalition Government in the State, the former Revenue Minister H.C. Srikantaiah said.

    Chief Minister N. Dharam Singh and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President M. Mallikarjuna Kharge will attend the convention, he added.

    Addressing presspersons here on Wednesday, he said the convention will be held at the district stadium here and more than one lakh workers from various parts of the district will participate. The convention will provide a platform for Congress workers in the district to air their grievances, he said.

    He said that leaders of the party are touring the district in view of elections to the zilla and taluk panchayats and workers have complained about harassment by Janata Dal (Secular) workers. Congress partyworkers are urging the party to snap ties with the Janata Dal (S) and announce mid-term polls. They will also urge party leaders to opt out of the coalition, he added.

    The former Minister alleged that though people are suffering in flood-hit areas, the authorities concerned are taking up relief works only in selected areas.

    Accusing the district in-charge Minister of using funds released for the Mahamastakabhisheka for developing only selected constituencies, he said that funds are being misused. Mr. Srikantaiah said that he will bring this to the notice of Chief Minister N. Dharam Singh and urge the latter to conduct a probe into the matter.

    The district in-charge Minister has thwarted plans of the previous Government to increase the crushing capacity of the Hemavathi Cooperative Sugar Factory from 1,250 tonnes to 2,500 tonnes.

    He accused the Minister of not showing any concern for other plans including the starting of a cogeneration unit and setting up of a distillery.
