Belthangadi: If we win, this time the first demand will be to develop your road. The BJP members who got votes are tired of seeing that road is not built and the people are not in touch. Now the villagers of Mittottu under the 2nd Ward of Mundaje Gram Panchayat have made them stand holding the banner of ‘Hishkar’.
There are no suitable roads from Setu to Kodange, Mittottu and Moolaru while going to Mundaje which is on the edge of the National Highway. This area is so muddy that even a two-wheeler or a four-wheeler cannot travel during the rainy season. The town has more than 200 houses and a population of more than 600. There are more than 70 houses in Mittottu alone. Here four Gram.Pt. There are members. All of them won with the support of BJP party. Itta has 11 members Mundaje Gr.Pt. In all 11, BJP-backed members are dominant. We voted for BJP as the demand of last 20 years has not been fulfilled. Last time, MLAs had said that they would lay the foundation stone of Seetu Road by January. But the residents expressed their anger that we have not got justice for the development of the road.
So the residents of Mittottu, who lost their patience to wait and see, put up the election ‘Hiskar’ banner on the evening of February 25. This time there will be no temptation without being on the road. If you want votes, build a road before the next election or else don’t come here to ask for votes.
Panchayat members’ negligence has left us in doubt. Therefore, on the eve of the next election, no kind of election campaign should be carried out in Namma Bali. Political program should not be done for the purpose of election. The banner clearly states that no persuasion or compromise is allowed until the road is completely repaired.
