Udupi: Two lakh applications for houses and commercial complexes are waiting to be processed, but due to lack of interest of the State government to frame by-laws the panchayats are denying to issue new licenses to the people said Shobha Karandlaje, MP Udupi-Chikkamagaluru LS Constituency. She was addressing a press meet at Rajathadri Manipal here on March 30.
The government has a dedicated team of IAS officers who can frame new by-laws in a short span of time, but the government is not efficient in taking this initiative. 

Government has failed in strengthening the financial perspectives of the State, the excise department has reported deficit of 3,000 crores. This indicates the lack of interest of the state government in collecting taxes efficiently. Whenever Congress governs the state, it bankrupts its treasury.

Developmental works initiated by the state government are in vain. The law and order situation in the state is in crisis, which indicates Home Minister K J George has not control over the police department. Government officials fear to work under the Congress led state government after the suspicious death of Assistant Commissioner of Commercial taxes D K Ravi.

The Congress government is catering to sand mafia in the state as its ministers and MLA's are involved in the same.

The issues with the slow construction work of National Highway 66 are discussed with the Deputy Commissioner and the NH officials. 56 Km work is in the completion stage while the work of 9 Km will be completed soon. 9 new bridges are constructed on the rivers connecting NH66 of which 7 bridges will be opened by the end of May.

She also said that she has widely discussed in the Lok Sabha on establishing ESI hospital in Udupi. The state government needs to send a proposal for the same, she added.

The DPR process for the construction of Malpe-Theerthalli NH has been completed while talks are on with the surface minister for the construction of tunnel in Agumbe ghat to protect the ecosystem.

Government needs to be serious on the Kasturirangan Report as the days are nearing for the submission of the report to the green bench of the Supreme Court, she added.

District BJP chief Thingale Vikramarjuna Hegde, Secretary Kuthyaru Naveen Shetty, Women’s wing chief Sheela K Shetty, ZP member Githanjali Suvarna, fish federation president Yashpal Suvarna and Suresh Nayak were present.

Udupi: Congress Ministers and MLAs involved in Sand Mafia in State; MP Shobha Karandlaje.

Shobha Karandlaje is hailing from an agricultural labourer’s family. She did not have any surplus in come after meeting her normal expenses. Yet, she has purchased more than 300 acres of coffee plantation in Coorg worth more than 1800 Crores. She says she borrowed money for the estate from a company owned by Yeddyurappa's family, friends, and relatives! It is needless to say that the money is non-refundable. She even offered to swear before Lord Manjunatha temple in Dharmastala about the legitimate source of money to purchase the estate and then avoided taking oath!

Coming to Yeddyurappa, who was selling lemons in Mandya bus stand, who had even gone to jail on the allegations of amassing thousands of Crores rupees from land mafia and many other illegal activities when he was the chief minister of Karnataka, gave money to her to purchase coffee estates! Could any sane person believe this ‘cock and bull story’?

Look at the irony! The Devil is preaching the Bible!

According to Minister Shobha,Congress Ministers are hand in hand with Sand Mafia. Same way according to Congress, BJP Ministers are involved in Mining Mafia like Reddys in Bellary. So also Land grab as ex Chief Minister from BJP. What a fake and cheap comments from a Minister. She sure is a good talker but does very little...! Talk is very cheap but action shows the value. You were not talking much when Yeddi was Minister but now you a talk!
