Mangaluru, Feb 18,2017 : Senior Congress leader B Janardhana Poojary  seems to be unperturbed over the recent reports that the high command has recommended disciplinary action against him.


Addressing a press meet here on February 18, Saturday, Poojary said he   was waiting for a Congress notice and added he would be happy to receive it. At the same time he  declared that he would not  leave  the Congress party as it is in his blood.

Reiterating that he always  spoke  the truth, Poojary questioned if  he was not supposed to advise Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

On this occasion, Poojary tendered an apology to  family of the deceased Prajavani reporter Chethanram Iranthakaje for announcing a monthly aid of Rs 50,000 on his behalf. Poojary said he  declared so without thinking about it and said he was unable to pay such a huge sum monthly and  handed over a cheque for Rs 50,000 as his one-time  assistance to the family of the deceased journalist. Prajavani  reporter Mahesh received the cheque on behalf of Chethanram’s family.

On this occasion, Poojary informed that the Pushkarini or the lake of Kudroli Shree Gokarnanatheshwara Temple, along with the  garden nearby will be named after  industrialist J P Narayana Swamy who passed away recently in Bengaluru. Poojary also recalled the contributions made by Narayana Swamy towards the renovation of the shrine.
