Vijay Times News

Bangalore: State JDS working president H D Kumaraswamy has warned the Dharam Singh-led government that it would have to face dire consequences if it failed to issue 'hakku patras' (ownership rights) to the rightful house owners by Oct 2.
Speaking to reporters here on Monday, Kumaraswamy reminded the chief minister of his promise to Deve Gowda to issue ownership rights by Oct 2 and he better fulfil the promise to ensure good relations between the coalition partners.

He accused both Congress and BJP of being responsible for the mess in respect of issuance of 'hakku patras' to the deserving in Chamarajpet which is why the voters of the constituency were angry and had decided to elect a new face this time, he said. He charged Congress of issuing bogus hakku patras recently.

Kumaraswamy criticised Maharashtra governor S M Krishna for neglecting Chamarajpet, particularly its slum dwellers, after he had won the last assembly election. Krishna had, instead, spent time watching Wimbledon tennis and touring foreign countries,'' he added.
