Madikeri, Karnataka, June 10 (UNI) Members of Cauvery Sene, expressing their protest against appointment of Mr Krishna J Palemar as Kodagu District Incharge Minister, have decided to picket his public meetings in the District.
Addressing a press conference here yesterday, Sene Convenor Ravi Chengappa urged that Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa should give ministry to the district MLAs and appoint them as district in charge. "The government is showing step motherly attitude towards Kodagu and Sene will oppose all the meetings being attended by the minister in Kodagu." He said that the Sene activists would block the border of Kodagu -Kerala on June 16 to oppose the move by Kerala government to take up a power project across Barapole, running from Kodagu. " The project is coming up in the border and lands of Kodagu will also submerge and hence the Karnataka government should intervene in the matter and stop the project." UNI XR MSP HVB1132
