UDUPI: Former CM Siddaramaiah and KPCC president DK Shivakumar will take out a six-day “Janadhwani” padayatra in Udupi district (from Hejamady to Shiroor) from February 22, highlighting the “anti-people policies” of the Centre, together with the “demerits of new farm laws”.
District Congress unit president Ashok Kumar Kodavoor instructed reporters on Friday that a number of insurance policies of the Centre, together with amendments to the APMC Act and Labour Act and skyrocketing costs of petrol and cement, are towards the curiosity of individuals.
The padayatra, masking 108 km, will create consciousness on the “anti-people policies” of the Centre, he stated. Party leaders UT Khader, Abhaychandra Jain, Vinay Kumar Sorake, Pramod Madhwaraj, Mithun Rai, and Gopal Poojari will probably be a part of the padayatra.
“The Centre is promoting privatisation. This shows the government is not capable of managing these institutions. Several people have lost their jobs. People are realising that this government they voted for is not working in their favour,” he added.
