The issues dear to People of Coorg

CC Staff

By: I K Anil, CLN

M.C.N. has written to the CM on all pertaining matters, dear to  the people of  Coorg. He further, has stated  that despite drawing the CM s attention on the floor of the house, nothing substantial  has  been done on these burning issues. I am sure, that though  the comments are from  the  leader of the opposition in the council, they should be taken seriously by the ruling party, failing which, BJP can wish this bastion goodbye. Kodagu has  been sympathetic towards the BJP despite the fact, that the BJP was not ruling at the centre nor the state, at that point in time.  When I heard the CMs address at  the State Journalist’s Meet, held at Madikeri in December 2009,

I was convinced that he had a special place for the people of Kodagu.  However, I presume, present Karnataka politics has kept him  pre -occupied. The onus of presenting Kodagu’s case, of solving Jamma Bane, Man animal conflict, tree rights and roads rests solely with our esteemed elected representatives, who should be proactive in representing the burning issues, with the powers that be.

The Kodagu police under the able guidance of  SP Manjunath Annegeri has mobilised and activated the cadres to a nicety. The recent car jacking is one of  the many crimes, his team  has nipped in the bud. The results are there  not only because of his ability, but  the fact  he has not been transferred  within a year, like thirteen of his predecessors, who have not held office for more than six months. We do hope, the government according to their policy, will not  transfer  able officers before  the stipulated three year period .

The Tree preservation meet at Bangalore to amend the species  of trees to be felled with out permission, is a step in the right direction. Farmers will benefit if more species are brought under this list. The environmentalists can be rest assured that the farmers will plant more of these species felled, as an insurance for their future. Today the trend is to plant only silver oaks, as this species can be felled without prior permission.
