MYSURU: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that in the forthcoming days, Nanjangud, popularly known as Kashi of the South’ will be developed as a spiritual and tourism centre.

His remarks came after performing ‘Guddali puja’ (groundbreaking ceremony) for various development works of Srikanteshwara Temple, commissioning of Nugu and Hediyala Lift Irrigation projects and various other development works in Nanjangud town.

During his inaugural address, Bommai said, “The incumbent government has given equal opportunities to all downtrodden sections.” Hailing the efforts of social reformers like Ambedkar, he said, “Maharshi Valmiki, Dr B R Ambedkar and D Devaraj Urs have left behind a rich legacy”.

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai was felicitated on the occasion.

Stressing the importance of development projects, Bommai said, “Nanjangud is a sacred place and undertaking¬† development here is like promoting development of the state. Nanjangud MLA B Harshavardhan has been developing this place in the last four-and-half years and is also a popular leader.”

“The main canal of the Nugu Lift Irrigation scheme was in a bad shape earlier, but the Water Resources Minister repaired and released water into it. The foundation stone for the Hediyala Lift Irrigation scheme was laid today and after its completion, all tanks in taluks will be filled up”, he added.

Minister Govind Karjol, MLA Harshavardhan, MP V Srinivasa Prasad and other senior ministers were present during the event. (ANI)
