SDPI initiates ‘Walk to Ward’ rally in NR segment
“NR segment has remained one of the most backward constituencies in Karnataka. The living condition of the people remains what it was seven decades ago. The constituency lacks basic amenities,” said Majeed. In a veiled jibe at Sait, he added, “The elected representative does not listen to the voters’ woes, and has been misleading them with false promises during the election. What is interesting is that he is not available to the voters.”
Lack of potable drinking water and the pathetic living conditions were among some of the major problems the residents grappled with on a daily basis, he said. “NR segment has a population of 3.5 lakh, of which nearly 80% are daily-wage labourers, deprived of basic facilities,” Majeed said.
SDPI State general secretary Abdul Lateef, district president Azam Pasha and Secretary Koushan Baig were present.
