The judge was speaking after inaugurating a blood donation camp organised  by the DK District SVEEP Committee with the theme " Blood Donation to Save Lives, Voting to save Nation" here on April 4, Wednesday.

"I joined the judicial service in 1986.  During every election year I would have been transferred to some other place and was deprived of voting," he expressed his regret.

"Once I had been to a polling booth at Gulbarga to cast my vote. But my name was missing in the voters’ list," he recalled and added he was determined to exercise his  franchise. "I will be casting  my vote this time when I am on the verge of retirement," he said.

Judge Mallana Gowda Patil, ZP CEO Dr M R Ravi, District Health Officer Dr Ramakrishna Rao and others were present.
