Speaking to the Press in Congress office on February 12, Friday, he said that the Chief Minister’s announcement of a compensation of Rs 25 lakhs, 4 acres of land and a government job for Hanumanthappa’s  family  is appreciable."This reveals his concern for the braveheart’s family," Poojary added.

Regarding the statement of Siddaramaiah that the watch was ’gifted’ to him, Poojary said the Chief Minister ought not have received the gift which  has now given a tool to the opposition to target him.

"Since the past two years, the Chief Minister has earned the love and respect of the people for his sincere work. In order to retain it and also to save the name and fame of the party it is better for him to auction the watch," Poojary said.

Former mayor Mahabala Maarla, TK Sudhir and others were present.

Poojary seems to be rising issue unnecessarily. Do what is need and not unwanted.

It has to be compulsory for the politician to recruit the children in army. Then you people would realize the pain. Its not as easy as we talk. You people are not at all fit to talk about such brave soldiers.
