BANGALORE: Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda on Monday was complimented by members cutting across party lines for being the first person to become the executive head of the state from the Upper House.  “It is a matter of great honour to this Upper House,” said Council Chairman D H Shankaramurthy. Leader of the Opposition C Motamma expressed happiness at her colleague in the same house, as did senior JD (S) leader M C Nanaiah, who said: “The Council’s prestige is enhanced. But I am pained at media reports in that state the CM had made a backdoor entry, which is not correct,” Nanaiah averred.

‘DVS must continue in office’

Hassan: Brushing aside the possibility of snap polls to the state assembly, JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda on Monday said Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda should continue in office for the remainder of the term of the BJP-led government.

Tribute paid to Bangarappa, others

Council members paid tribute to former chief minister S Bangarappa and six other personalities, including litterateur L Basavaraju and film producer C V L Shastry. CM D V Sadananda Gowda and Council Chairman D H Shankaramurthy recalled Bangarappa’s achievements. “Bangarappa was a pan-Karnataka leader who conceived many pro-people programmes,” Shankaramurthy said. The CM said Bangarappa was the champion of the backward classes and irrespective of his political leanings he was looked upon with awe and respect. Leader of the Opposition in the Council C Motamma and former law minister M C Nanaiah recalled Bangarappa’s services. The Council members paid condolences to former legislators Manchanahalli Mahadev, Ramasiddalingappa Nodoni and Somappa Suvarna.
