SHIMOGA: Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Monday hailed the former Chief Minister the late Kadidal Manjappa as a rare politician having imbibed the highest qualities in life.

Terming Manjappa as a true Gandhian, he said that there was a lot for the elected representatives to learn from the great leader who set highest standards for others to emulate.

Mr. Yeddyurappa hailed Shimoga as a unique district for having produced the great political leaders such as Shantaveri Gopalagowda and Kadidal Manjappa who served society with a sense of dedication. He said that he would make sincere efforts to find solution to the people’s problems.

He said that people would remember for long the contribution of Manjappa not only as Chief Minister and Minister for Revenue and Public Works but also as a selfless worker.
