Support me, Yeddyurappa pleads with people

Staff Correspondent

Chief Minister prays at Kukke Subramanya, says he has come through many ‘agni parikshas'



JUMBO BLESSING:Chief Minister B. S. Yeddyurappa being blessed by an elephant on the Kukke Subramanya temple premises on Monday.

Kukke Subramanya: Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa urged people to come to his support in view of attempts to topple his government.

“I am the representative of the six crore people (of the State). There are criticisms over the functioning of my government and I do accept it. But when it becomes too much, people should come to my rescue and teach a lesson to such critics,” he said.

He was speaking at the function organised on Monday to inaugurate some buildings and lay foundation stone for other works being done as part of a three-phase development programme being taken up at this pilgrimage centre.

“I am placing a true picture,” Mr. Yeddyurappa said and added that he had faced several “Agni Parikshas” in the last three years. “I have come here only to seek from God the strength needed to overcome these Agni Parikshas,” he said.

Mr. Yeddyurappa said he had been a fighter since the days he was a councillor in Shikaripur (Shimoga district). “I have been fighting as the Opposition party leader. Now I am fighting to remain in the post. This is inevitable,” he said.

Mr. Yeddyurappa said in a democracy people were supreme and it's through elections that they chose their representative. If people were not happy with the governance they had a chance to elect a new government at the end of the five-year term. No other mode of removing an elected government should be accepted by the people, he said.

Mr. Yeddyurappa said good people should come forward and cleanse the political system.

“I don't say you join our party. But join any of the parties and cleanse the malaise-afflicted to the system,” he said.

Mr. Yeddyurappa took district officials to task for being slackness in implementing the three-phase development work being undertaken at the Kukke Subrahmanya temple at a cost of Rs. 180 crore. Mr. Yeddyurappa directed Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner N.S. Channappa Gowda to take action against the contractor responsible for the delay in completing first phase of works on the temple premises. He asked Mr. Gowda to issue tenders related to 2 {+n} {+d} and 3 {+r} {+d} phase of the works by July.
