Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Dec 28, 2016 : Senior Congress leader B Janardhana Poojary has now trained   guns on Mangaluru Mayor  Harinath. The reason- the recent hike in  property tax under Self-Assessment Scheme.


Addressing press persons  here on December 28, Wednesday Poojary   has demanded a public apology from the Mayor  for lying by reportedly telling  the media recently that  he (Poojary) had been informed about the increase in the Property Tax in advance.

 "The Mayor’s statement has given the impression that I have given my consent for the hike in the tax, but that is not the case," said Poojary and added  that the Mayor had made such a statement for his own political gains and he has to  apologise for the same.

Poojary also launched a scathing attack on his own party and  said it has failed to keep up its words on property tax given to the electorate prior to the elections. The Congress must keep up its promise, said Poojary.

Referring to the controversial Yettinahole Project, Poojary demanded that former CM  Sadananda Gowda need to clarify as to how 2000 TMC water of Netravathi was going waste by joining the sea.

On Gowda as well as another former CM Moily who are hell bent upon implementing the project, Poojary questioned why they did not contest   polls in the district.

Poojary also demanded apology from the prime minister for  all the inconveniences caused to people owing to demonetization.
