Chikkaballapura: CPI (M) Leader Dr. Anil said that if there is any development in Bagepalli Constituency, it is only during the tenure of the CPI (M).
Speaking at a private event in the Town, he said that since independence, when our party candidates were elected as MLAs thrice in Bagepalli Constituency, the development work done by them in the Constituency has remained forever and nothing has been done by other MLAs. Ever since they have come to power, they have been shouting that we have done this, we have done that work, but the work they have done is not visible to anyone,” he alleged.
Former MLA late G. V. Sriram Reddy, who was from our party and when he was elected as an MLA, has worked for the development by bringing grants. However, the present MLAs, who have been elected twice in a row, are only working on funds released by the Government and have failed to develop the Constituency by bringing in special grants, he said in a veiled attack on the sitting MLAs.
