JD(S), Cong leaders lock horns over Kanakapura’s merger with Bengaluru

Bengaluru: The ongoing fight between JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy and DyCM DK Shivakumar over merging of Kanakapura (currently in Ramanagara) with Bengaluru Urban district appears to be intensifying by the day.

Throwing a challenge at the Congress leader Shivakumar, he said, “Even if you take a new birth, you will not succeed in disintegrating Ramanagara district” asserted Kumaraswamy on Wednesday.

Reacting to Shivakumar questioning his senses and common knowledge over the row, Kumaraswamy stated that he won’t require the intelligence and sense of robbing the lands from the people, looting hills and minting money by foreign exports and to kill those who come in the way.

“Not only in this lifetime. DK Shivakumar must understand that even if he takes birth for seven more times it is impossible to disintegrate Ramanagara district. The district had been formed after careful consideration of convenience and inconveniences of the people. Now, if he claims that he can break the district and join Kanakapura taluk to Bengaluru, the people will resort to agitation,” he stated.

The DyCM alleged that Kumaraswamy issues loose statements but his thoughts are different. “What’s on his mind? Is it to loot and handover the costly lands of Kanakapura to builders? Or to build a fortress on the benami lands in Kanakapura?

Several new districts were created in the state. Has the exercise been futile? They were created considering the interests of the people, Kumaraswamy said.
