Bangalore, July 15 (UNI) The Janata Dal (Secular) will launch an agitation if the BJP Government in Karnataka failed to confer 'Second State Capital' status to Belgaum as promised by the previous BJP-JD(S) coalition Government.
Addressing a press conference here today, State JD(S) Spokesperson Y S V Dutta said Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa should not fail to honour the commitment made to the people of Belgaum district when he was the Deputy Chief Minister.
He said the decision to hold a special Assembly session in Belgaum was taken by former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and the State Government should take all measures to make it an annual affair.
He criticised the State Government's move to shift the construction site of the proposed 'Suvarna Soudha', a permanent venue for holding Assembly sessions in Belgaum, for which both Mr Kumaraswamy and Mr Yeddyurappa had laid the foundation stone last year.
