Moodbidire: Congress workers staged a protest in front of the taluk administration building on Wednesday against the Tehsildar’s offer to illegally lease the old building near the taluk office to a BJP worker to run a canteen.

Addressing the protestors, former Minister Abhay Chandra Jain said that the Tehsildar had kept the confidentiality of the public tender called for awarding the canteen contract to a BJP worker. However, even though a Congress activist has also applied after learning about the matter, the Tehsildar has approved the application of a BJP activist and given the canteen lease as per the instructions of the MLA.

There is a suspicion that corruption has taken place in this process. Allegations of corruption are already being heard from the public against the taluk office and there is a possibility that the canteen which will be started in the hall will be turned into a collection center of the administrative building. He warned that Congress will continue the protest if the process of awarding canteen leases is not made transparent.

Block Congress President Valerian Sequeira, Women’s Unit President Supriya D. Shetty, Puttige Gram Panchayat President Praveen Shetty, former APMC member Vasudeva Naik, municipal councilors Suresh Kotyan, Suresh Prabhu, Koragappa, Purandara Devadiga, Jossi Minajes, Imaithullah, Congress spokesperson Rajesh Kadalkere, prominent Raghu Pujari, Chandrahas Sanil, Mohammad Aslam and others were present.
