The approximate geographical area of my constituency is 870 Sq. Kms. On my several visits to many
villages of the constituency, I have observed the problems that the villagers are facing even after 67
years of independence, inspite of plethora of Government agencies working on various Governmental
Schemes. I am saddened to see the plight of people still under poverty, high illiteracy, ill-health and
very low standard of living due to improper sanitation facilities, non-availability of potable drinking
water, living in dilapidated houses, inadequate drainage with roads submerged in sullage. I have
observed that, the bureaucracy lacks data that are needed for appropriate planning and thus
prioritization is not well deduced the various issues lurking forever in the village settlements of my
Constituency. There was absolutely zero to 5% data available on the state of physical and social
infrastructure of our villages.
Hence, I have initiated sector based primary surveys to get the first
hand information on various issues in all the villages of my constituency. This exercise is the first of
its kind in the entire country apart from the inadequate National Informatics Center Network India’s
(NICNET) GIS enabled surveys.
About 18% of the total population of Karnataka constitutes the Hyderabad-Karnataka Region, in
which, only a minuscule percentage is employed elsewhere in Bangalore and other cities. Skill based
trainings to match with the industrial needs are not reaching the young students in rural areas of my
constituency. Many training programs conducted by Industries Department don’t fit into the “State of
Art Technology” and majority of them are residential program. The women in the rural areas
generally don’t attend the Residential Training programs. There is a need for “Mobile Training
facility” for the rural areas, wherein, the Mobile Training Units could stay in a village for 15 days to a
month during the training period. I plan to initiate the Mobile Training facility to initiate and upgrade
the industrial skills amongst my people. I am also working towards encouraging the right type of
Industries to come to Bidar (S) Constituency.
In the best interest of the farmers of Bidar South Assembly Constituency, there is a need to shift (Or
add-on) the existing APMC yard from Bidar City to a bigger one with all the amenities, as well as,
construct new Sub-markets in Manna-E-Khelli, Manhalli and Bemalkheda. There are less number of
Godowns and processing plants in the constituency. There is a need for the construction of Storage
Rooms for agriculture produce and Cold Storage Units for Horticulture produce in each and every
I am also determined to protect the flora and fauna and create Boulevards/ Avenues/ Arboriculture all
along the Roads connecting villages, Major District Roads and State Highways of my constituency
with the assistance of the Forest Department. I am proposing the Department to take up the projects
for creating new sanctuaries for Black Buck and other animals and also for an “Animal Rehabilitation
center”- for old and in-firm animals in my constituency, in lines with the “Pinjara pole” of Mysore.
I call upon the Gram Panchayaths to form “Village Development
Committees”, “Balvikas Mahila Committees”, “Farmers Club”, etc. in letter and spirit and thus
make the public participation more effective for village development. This acts as the foundation for
the creation of “Smart Village”.
I give a clarion call to all the citizens of my constituency to come
together wholeheartedly and support my initiatives for the overall sustainable development of the
