Bellary ministers to go on padayatra to Mysore
Bangalore: In a retaliatory mode after
attack from Opposition parties over alleged illegal mining,
Karnataka Health Minister B Sreeramulu today said he and his
ministerial colleagues -- the Reddy brothers -- would
undertake a padayatra from Bellary to Mysore to "expose the
misdeeds" of Congress and JDS.
"Congress leader Siddaramaiah has announced plans to
undertake padayatra from Bangalore to Bellary. We (ministers G
Janardhana Reddy, G Karunakara Reddy and himself) will go on
padayatra from Bellary to Mysore," Sreeramulu told reporters.
Sreeramulu, one of the mining magnets of the mine-rich
Bellary district and a business associate of the Reddy
brothers, dared the Opposition parties to prove their charge
that he was involved in illegal mining and declared "if it is
proved, I am ready to quit".
He termed as "politically motivated" the statement
made by Governor H R Bhardwaj on illegal mining.
Sreeramulu also flayed the Opposition dharna over the
issue in the Assembly and said "Let them come to Bellary to
see the development works that have taken place there. When
Congress president Sonia Gandhi was elected to Lok Sabha from
Bellary, the then Congress government announced a special
package for its development, but it was not implemented."
