MANGALORE: DK District SC and ST Organizations Federation has come out
in strong support of making four-time MLA from Sullia S Angara a
minister in the D V Sadananda Gowda cabinet. Angara has all
qualification to become a minister and his seniority as a MLA should
be given due weightage during the next expansion of the cabinet,
maintained the Federation's office bearers, stating that they have
represented the matter orally and in writing to the CM.

Nirmal Kumar, member of the Federation, told reporters here on Tuesday
that the various SC/ST organizations in the district have waited
patiently for the day to see Angara become a minister. During the last
four terms as MLA, Angara has worked steadfastly to ensure overall
development of Sullia assembly constituency, he said, adding that
Angara has also won love and respect of people of the area with his
approach towards development.

P Keshava, state committee members of Karnataka Dalit Sangharsh Samiti
said the various SC/ST organizations may have ideological differences
but have all come under the banner of the Federation to push for the
rights of members of SC/ST community. "All that we are seeking is one
chance for Angara to become a minister, and work for welfare of the
community," he said, adding that the Federation would not settle for
anything less.

The SC/ST community have been continuously seeing their aspirations
being crushed by successive state governments in Karnataka and
governments of the day, including the present BJP government, which
has merely paid lip service to the community, Keshava said. S P Anand,
D K district convener of DSS said the Federation has also appealed to
former CM B S Yeddyurappa and state BJP president K S Eshwarappa and
pleaded Angara's case with them.
